Ok, I got back in to riding in 2008 (Iím 43YO). I started keeping mileage when I started in 08 and that year I did 1629 miles. In 2009, I logged 1303 miles. Now, I finally compiled my miles from 2010 and it turns out that I did 1003 miles.
Iím not a recreational cyclist and basically use my bike(s) to get to work. I will occasionally do errands on the weekends like running to the store etc, but thatís about it.
I can attribute this to 2 reasons: My job moved to a closer location in mid 2009. 2nd. Our in-laws moved out in mid 2010 since our daughter is now going to a regular 8-3pm school. Before, she was in preK and they would pick up and drop off. I was free to bike in to work and bike home. Now, with me shouldering the drop-off duties. I will sometimes take the car to do the drop off, come home and ride to work. I admit that a lot of times I ride the whole way to work after the drop off (non bicycling day).
Man, I hope Iím not getting old and subconsciously avoiding biking. 2011 will be the true test. I think I need to stay stable from what I did in 2010 or at least improve on that. What do you all think?
