Cycling: June 2015 vs. June 2014

June 2015 was an amazing month for cycling. The temperatures were pretty ideal, there wasn't much rain until last weekend, and we even got new trails to ride. I rode more kilometres in June than I have in any other month of my life. Here's how my cycling in June 2015 measured up against June 2014.

June 2015: 742.85 km


June 2014: 539.92 km


My goal for 2015 remains a personal best 5,000 km. I'm currently at 3010.6 km with 6 months to go.

Happy Canada Day, indeed.

I was just at the Port Credit Canada Day parade along Lake Shore.

June was pretty much my worst month for cycling ever. In fact I never once managed to go for a real ride. I biked more in each of December, January & February this year. Strava tells me I biked about 23 metres in June.

You see, June was supposed to start with the 75 KM Ride for Heart. But I quickly discovered I had a flat. I had a spare tube ... which turned out to be the wrong size; someone had thrown it into the wrong bin at MEC. I tried mending it, but wasn't successful, and ran out of time. The weather was complete shit anyway, but I did want to do it.

The rest of the month was taken up with piles of classes, weekends spent on (nice) things like nieces and nephews birthdays, visiting a cottage, friends visiting, and Father's Day celebrations.

Last weekend was my first one off in ages ... and it just pissed rain the entire time.

I've already done 50 KM in July though... thank you Canada Day!

Whoops, got my dates wrong. Ride for Heart was May 31.
