I ticked past 5,000 km this year today. That's about 100 km on my MTB, 1,400 km on my cyclocross bike and 3,500 on my road bike. This does not count trainer km or commuting/utility km, since I don't have a speedo on my utility bike... and my commute is only 2.5 km each way. By my count, I'm on track for a 12,000-14,000 km year!
Today's ride was hard, fast and fun. 110.3 km with an average speed of 31 km/h. It was in the morning, so we missed most of the really brutal [hot] weather. Enrico, Eric the Human Scab, Poggibonsi and I raced out to Ile Perot, did the loop and, on our ride back through Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, met up with some of Enrico's old racing buddies, top Vet-A and Vet-B racers... one of whom was Dan the Sadist. We decided to join them around the Senneville Loop, where we met up with some more people, including some more racers, and had a very nice, very high-speed ride home.
Fortunately, there had been a stage race in Sutton this weekend, so the racers weren't planning on pushing it, so I had a thoroughly enjoyable, steady-fast ride... And I got my 5,000 km.
I am planning to celebrate this milestone as I always do, with a steak BBQ. Coincidentally, it's also Canada day, so we had a BBQ planned, anyway.
