    2022 Biking Totals

    Not quite as many km’s as 2021 but I am happy with the total. Did include a Rideau lakes Cycle Tour (the first since 2019) but no Ottawa GranFondo. I don’t think the GranFondo will be coming back unfortunately. Also did not include a trip to Rob’s cottage due to weather and scheduling conflicts. I’m […]

  • 2012 Review

    As is my custom, I’m recording my mileage and setting a goal for the new year. I exceeded my goal for 2012 which was 7,500km by a comfortable margin which makes me quite happy: Count:  172 Activities Distance:  8,101.44 km Avg Distance:  47.10 km Time:  278:53:34 h:m:s Avg Time:  1:37:17 h:m:s Elevation Gain:  24,075 m […]

  • Cycling Update

    I think my goal for the year of 7,500km is still achievable. If the weather holds out and I don’t get sick again (missed a week and a half with a bad cold already) then I should make it. Here’s the year so far: Count:   115 Activities Distance:   5,139.34 km Avg Distance:   44.69 km Time:   178:05:55 […]

  • A look back at 2011 and forward to 2012

  • 5000 (More or less)

    This is from the beginning of 2011 so some of it was indoors on my trainer or rollers. I think going forward I will set a goal for all of 2012. Unless I can think of a way to easily keep track in Garmin Connect of the type of rides. Count: 116 Activities Distance: 5,169.62 […]

  • The Gats

    Also, here is my last trip up to Gatineau Park. I hope to do this trip more often so I can improve my hill climbing. It’s tough but I enjoy it!

  • 5000

    Today i accomplished my goal of riding 5000 km for the season. I’m pretty happy but now I have to set a new one for next year! I think 6000 should be possible if I extend my weekend rides a little. Anyway, here are the details: Count: 127 Activities Distance: 5,001.41 km Avg Distance: 39.38 km Time: 174:55:25 h:m:s […]

  • 30 km/h

    Yesterday I broke 30 km/h for my average speed on my usual after work ride. I’ve done it before but I find it quite hard. It’s funny but I can do 29 km/h without too much trouble but to go one faster is hard!
