My mad cyclist’s crazy cycling year is complete. To bring you up-to-date here are some statistics:
Total number of miles he cycled in 2019 – 6885 – more than I drove in my car!
Average distance covered in each of 168 rides – 41 miles
Average speed – 14.6 mph
Average weekly mileage 132
Number of calories used 425, 619 (no record of number of yummy cakes eaten at cafe stops!)
In December he tried out two ideas for his 2020 target. Idea one: to cycle every day; idea two: to do one cycle ride a month of at least 100 miles.
In the first week of December he set out to ride every day for a week and succeeded, covering 202 miles in 7 days.
Then on Sunday the 29th December he cycled 101 miles stopping for refreshment at Haynes Motor Museum cafe at Sparkford and Messums gallery cafe at Tisbury.
This year’s target still remains undecided.
