I got in a ride today after not riding much the last 10 days since the kids were home. Finished off the year with 32.5 miles and 2080 ft of climb. Totals for the year are (and back through 2008 when I first started keeping track):
2012 2746.1 mi 101016 ft
2011 3048.4 124899
2010 2695.0 102975
2009 3582.5 144720
2008 3031.0 108581
2010 was the first year of serious knee pain. With PT and SynVisc shots I was able to ride somewhat normally in 2011. 2012 Started off with a knee replacement which brought the yearly mileage back down.
I guess a good goal for 2013 is to get the mileage back up over 3000.
Happy New Year!
