Miles year to date

Punched in the numbers from yesterday's commute, I am shy of 4000 miles on the year by .63 mile. Not spectacular, but I've enjoyed every one of those miles. Anyone else keeping track of miles? Did you meet your goals? Did you set any goals? Are you going to for 04?

Are you counting only commute miles?

I'm going to hit 5000 miles for '03 if the weather holds but that includes training, race, and just for fun miles.

Mr. Fix, you are a cycling nut.

I broke my odometer, but I usually average about 4,000 mpy.

Well, I can't compare to you guys but I expect to hit my goal of 2500 miles for the year. Right now, I'm at about 2484 - almost all commuting miles. The weather has gotten crappy up here but I'm still riding around one day a week.

Next year my goal will be 3000 miles.

Since June (when I started keeping track) I've got 1600 miles. Just estimating, but I'm probably close to 2500 miles on the year. Next year my goal is ~4000 miles.

I started keeping track at the end of July and have around 600 miles so far this year. I had no goals set. Next year is a different story!

I had about 2700 when I was playing around with my computer 2 months ago and accidentally reset it. Averaging out my commute and weekend riding, I figure about 3500 this year. I'll have a goal of 4000 for next year, and try to leave the computer alone.

Don't really keep track. However, at 10 miles per round trip, 5 days a week, that is 50 miles per week, or about 2,500 miles per year.

2709mi/4334km so far this year. Realistically figureing in that I will lose a week before Christmas it will be hard for me to reach my goal of 3000 miles. Maybe next year.

In the 12 months that I have had the bike (end of November) I did about 8,600km on my road bike alone, plus a few hundreds on my MTB commuter! As of Jan 1st I will reset my computer and I am hoping for 12,000km+ on the road bike in 2004.

I was aiming for around 10,000km but will fall 1000km short due to going on holidays for 3 weeks and some terrible stretches of bad weather. 8,476km at the moment but should get to 9,000km by the end of the year. Last year was 7,200km so I am ahead already.

CHEERS.

Two years ago I was 30 pounds heavier and I started riding. Last year I set a goal of 1000 miles, and did 1043. This year my odometer died around 4000 back in September. My car should be so lucky...

Cyclometer passed 2,025 miles yesterady. I just returned to cycling in May after 10+ years out of the saddle. Did not even have a working cyclometer until June.

Goal for 2004 ... 4,000 miles.

Just short of 4800 miles at the moment. If I manage to get 4 commutes a week this week and next, will break 5K for the year, but icy this morning so didn't commute today.

lets hope the weather improves!!

I just hit 4005 miles (6445 K) this morning. I'm up over last year at this point. I'm not sure what I'll end up for the year but I'll keep riding.

Started riding again after a couple year layoff in mid September, 6 miles was my first ride , 1300 since then, weight dropped from 214 to 195 this morning.
6000 is my goal for '04 with at least one double century.
My commute is only 4 mi each way, so I try to stretch it to 15.

5,650 miles so far, give or take a mile or two,

Hoping to reach 6,000 mles for the year, should make it as my friend is organising a trip between the Xmas and New year of the Reivers way, 191 miles distance,coast to coast, so that should boost me towards my final goal....

I am close to 4700kms so far, but I start counting from spring when I first ride on my summer bike. I think I started this season in March (don't have the logbook with me). So I expect to reach 5500-6000 kms. My mileage drops drastically during the darkest, coldest winter months.

I don't really have targets, but it is fun to watch the kilometres accumulate...
