The Path to Cycling 7551.79 KM in 2015

In 2014, I biked 4693.42 KM. It was the most I had ever cycled in a calendar year. I wondered if I could reach 5000 KM in 2015 and set that as my goal.

Earlier today, I went for a brisk 30.28 KM ride along the lake and called it a year. That brought my total for 2015 to a satisfying 7551.79 KM. That's right, I demolished my goal and made 2015 the most cycled year of my life.


July was my best month for cycling, and not surprisingly, February was my worst. Don't get me started about February...

My goal for 2016 is far less precise. I aim to cycle when I can, and enjoy every minute of it.

Your goal should be to get those fucking pedals already!

I have my eyes on a pair of hybrid pedals from MEC. I just have to pull the trigger... and buy the shoes.

Mike, what cycling computer do you use? I've gotten too heavy over 2015. I'm going to set a distance goal and add a riding component to my "fat to fit 2016" program.
