I blame Covid for a drop to 4,300 in 2020 - mostly due to almost no club rides. But I did ride on 50 more days than the previous year.
Still 200 miles shy of 4,000 for this year. Might make it, weather permitting.
Got in a 15 mile ride yesterday on a warmish December day to get to 4,006 miles for the year. Have ridden on 293 days, so far.

My goal for the year is actually 5,200 (100 mile avg. per week). We're leaving for our winter residence in Florida in 2 weeks, so I should have no problem achieving my ultimate goal if I don't get to ride much until then. It's snowing here today.
I'm in Florida now, riding in warmer weather again. My final tally is below. I rode 189 days and played 94 rounds of golf. I've averaged over 98 rounds of golf per year over the past 8, but I've cut it back a little since I started riding again in 2020.
