1003 km, largely thanks to a 350km day at the start of the month.
Had to force myself out the door last night for a slow 13km on the MTB.

660km in three weeks so far. Odo hit 3000km today so I'm shooting for 1000 by next month. I want to see that 4000 on the computer...

Doing all my updates for 2012 at one time here. I typically don't take the full 31 days, just going from the first Sunday (or last Sunday of the previous month) to the last Saturday of the month so that everythng is in 4- or 5-week blocks. This includes total kilometers from all three bikes I've been riding: the fixed gear (which gets most of the use and is currently at just over 13,000 km), the track bike on the track, and the tandem:

Date: Total: Month:
----- ------- ------
1-28 1,501
2-25 3,064 1,563
3-31 5,123 2,059
4-28 6,962 1,839
5-26 8,770 1,808
6-30 10,884 2,114
7-28 13,006 2,122
8-25 15,044 2,038

Can't quite make the 1,000 miles per month club as I'm a bit short in January & February!

One month with over 1,000 km:
1,075 km in April

These are the runner up months:
832 km in July
729 km in Oct
698 km in March
606 km in September

I'll probably do around 7,500 km this year.
