The 5000 mile mark

I was looking at my Garmin Connect stats this evening and realised I’d just recently rolled over the 5000 mile mark for the year! I know it’s not much compared to some but it’s a good milestone for me. Last year I finished on a shade over 4460 miles.


I don’t really set mileage targets, but with any luck I should hit 6000 miles by the end of the year. Next year I may aim for 6215 miles (which is 10,000km).

Surrey Sportive 2015 by SussexSportPhotography.comMy favourite ride of the year (and I’ve had MANY great ones) was probably the AAT Surrey Sportive that I blasted around with a tight bunch of my Woking CC mates. A well organised event and a thoroughly enjoyable 95 miles breaking in my newly built Kinesis.

Monday morning is looking like the first truly freezing ride of the year. It’s forecast to drop to zero degrees so I’ll  be dusting off the full winter jacket for the first time this season!
