will be chuffed with that achievement once I get it...never thought I would ever do so many k's on a bike ....be interesting to see what I can achieve next year if I apply myself a bit better


You are a machine gretaboy - well done where ever you finish. I an about 400 km away from 5000 for the year still hoping to make it. But with tha kms now with the kids it will take a long time to 400km at 15km/h but it will be fun.
Not fast, no style, but still get there.

Well I will start with:

1) Congrats to Tailwind for taking first place. Big effort and to ride so consistently over the year is huge. A deserving winner of the challenge

2) Tailwind...I have you in my sights for next year

3) Hit 12 000 commute k's this morning. Am buzzed that I have ridden so much and so far. My Endomondo stats to date are

Total Riding time: 18 days 6 hours and 52 minutes
Total distance: 12635 Kilometres
Calories burned: 597386
Average Speed: 28.79
Total Elevation: 92 316 metres

Have a few more rides yet so figures will change.

4) Hope everyone has a safe, a very safe holiday period and hope to see everyone back riding next year

Thanks gretaboy, well done on your 12k achieved this morning - given your setbacks this year, it's an inspiring performance!
I finish up my CBD commutes today, and apart from a few utility commutes to shops/family/friends, there won't be much mileage forthcoming from me over the next 10 days.
Will post a final review at the end of next week.

In the meantime, Happy Holidays, everyone! :D

Yep, top stuff Endos!

No more commutes for me as I've been on holidays and in Singapore.. Not back to work until next year.

I wish I could have ridden more but injury and lack of dedication to proper healing removed the possibility from me. I blame STRAVA lol...

Well, no significant rides for me since finishing up work on the 21st of December, bar a couple of round trips to my brother's place. So my final stats for 2012:

- 13 736.5km worth of commutes
- 1 day off bike in Feb due to bee sting near eye resulting in bad swelling
- 1 day off bike in Oct due to being cleaned up by a car - frame snapped, TW luckily only bruised
- 0 days on alternative transport to work

Thanks Endos, it's been good - thanks for the company in the challenge, and thanks for the inspiration!

Here's to great cycling in 2013 - Happy New Year, all!
