Ten miles per day

At the beginning of the year I set myself a fairly loose target of averaging 10 miles per day for no other reason than it seemed like a nice round number.

I don’t commute so all my miles are “recreational” rides. These vary greatly and are made up of anything from racing time trials, fast paced club rides, solo missions, social rides and of course relaxed cycling journeys with my wife.

Just looked at my stats and I’ve ridden 3850 miles so far this year.


That’s my 10 miles/day sorted so now I can slack off (or not).

I’ll easily surpass 4000 miles this year and hopefully a lot more than that, depending of course on how much snow and dangerously icy mornings we get. Anyway, that was my little milestone this week.

Enjoy your time in the saddle! :-)

    What a great idea. I’ve never thought of doing a daily goal, always weekly. I may have to test this plan.


    1. It’s quite interesting as you can easily see yourself fall behind the curve and know it ‘s time to get back on the bike! Depending on how I finish the year I may have to reach for a higher daily average in 2015. Thanks for reading.
