Cycling 2018

Posted (edited) · Report post

I've been cycling a fair bit since the last thread, but frankly the 2018 total to date is dismal at just under 700 km.  I have the eighth annual Granfondo Axel Merckx coming up in just under 4 weeks!  Ack!  I should be able to get another 500+ done by then....


In 2011, the first year I did the Granfondo, I rode 4540 km. (boo yeah!)

In 2012, 3693 km. (not half bad)

In 2013, it dropped to 1944 km. (can't remember the excuse!)

In 2014 it was better, at 3000 km! (we went to Europe that summer)

2015 was my best year in recent memory: 4600 km!! (yes!)

2016 was not half bad, and got 4111 km in. (good!)

2017 was quite poor, at 2071 km.  (went to Japan in September so lost the late riding season).


Despite the poor showing to date, I hope to get well over 3000 km this year.  I have work to do!

There is a Gent (Bruce Kerr) from Belmont (Ontario) who will be starting a cross-Canada trip on his bicycle in a few days.  He will be starting from Vancouver and ending up in St. John's, Newfoundland sometime in early August.  I wish him luck.
