For the last few years I have been following Chris’ most excellent lockring.not.included blog.
People often tell me that they admire my commitment to riding, especially through the worst of the weather, but his daily pictures and cataloguing of the changing of the seasons almost always get me wishing that I’d gone further on the way home (or at least used the fixed gear).
Once again, his year’s mileage stats makes mine look pretty pitiful, but here goes…
Total distance: 7487km (4653 miles)
Ridden to work: 148 days
Run to work: 16 days
Car to work: 37 days. Given that I wasn’t allowed to ride a bike for 6 weeks at the start of the year, I’m still pretty please with what I have chalked up, although it will of course be much more next year (as everyone who does this sort of thing says at this time of year).
As I’ve said before, getting up early every morning and riding to work won’t add years to my life, but it certainly adds life to my years…
