What mileage did you do on your bike last year ? I calculated I did around 2000 km excluding all the work I put in on the indoor trainer (cateye only pics up the front wheel).

Since getting my HRM in August I've clocked up around 600km

± 4000 k. :-[

The first week of 2002 is done, and I have almost 150k on the clock already. ;)
I reckon if I did 4000k a year as a pro, they'd fire me!

Maybe we should log all our rides for the year online, and compare. It's a good way to stay motivated (I think?)
Here's mine (the distances are in miles, so x with 1.6) > Vo2's ride log for 2002

Fired for doing 4000kms a year? Not if you were badly injured for 10 months and still had one more year to go on the contract. ;D

I've done about 120km already since 1 Jan 2002. However I might miss out on a day or 2 training as my front wheel has gone in for the bearing and they said that if they need to replace the hub it will take a day or 2 :(. I will be loosing vital training for the H2H but better have it repaired now than land up stranded in the race.

How about trainer miles, how do I log that? :)
Time and heart rate?

Create a new workout entry in the journal called "Trainer" or whatever and stick it in there.
For heart rates you'll just have to stick to your spreadsheet for now.

When I was in the Air Force, I used to get time off for training (seriously!). One year I did more miles on the bike than I did in my car (11,000miles) :eek:

And people are still surprised that my bike was worth more than my car ::)

It aint possible to have time to train and money at the same time :( if only someone would pay me $2 per KM I rode hehe

Hi Dodgy. Years ago in the UK I was in the Territorial Army. I could claim cycling expenses per mile from home to the local drill hall, for most people 2-3 miles. I chose a drill hall in central London, a round trip of 110 miles which I would often do late afternoon getting home in the early hours. Some long weekends I did round trips of 340 miles. Made a lot of money those days, could have been declared a pro? ;)
Best was a club friend of mine who got a job with the county council riding around country roads logging potholes! Got a salary + enormous cycling mileage expenses!
Now? So far January 297 km, both road and MTB. I tend to concentrate more on hours in the saddle than actual distances.

340 miles is a bloody long way.
Yes, but I did say it was years ago! (Actually about 50 years!)
I was riding time trials in those days, preferring the longer distances, 100 mile and 12 hour events. Today? I still feel like a teenager on the bike, that is until a real teenager passes me on a hill just cruising!!! Anyway I'm still a bike addict. ;D

:D are you guys sitting down? of course, you're at the PC, so you should be. OK, then it's safe for me to broadcast my mileage...

actually, no, I don't think I'll do that... yet. ;)

Anyone want to hazard a guess? I'll give you a little hint...

Take VO2's total, add Ouzo's total, deduct 1000k, add 100, plus 100, plus 100, plus 100, plus 100, add another 12 and there you have it! Anyone? :p

Acid - sorry, we're not all "acidic" ;) he he

That mileage I quoted was Jan - Dec 2001. It included indoor training, outdoor training and races, so that probably accounts for the high mileage.


Anyway, I'm outta here for today. Gotta go get ready - there's a bicycle calling me......
bye!
