Well, it's 2018. Happy New Year. And here's a summary of my 2017 cycling year:
Miles done : 5004.38
Number of rides : 156
Average distance : 32.08
Median distance : 24.86
Longest ride : 179.30
No. of 100m+ rides : 5
I believe the median figure is a good approximation of "most typical ride distance", but welcome corrections from those with a more assured grasp of statistics. Certainly though it looks about right, on that basis.
Figures for 2016, by comparison:
Miles done : 5775.61
Number of rides : 303
Average distance : 19.06
Median distance : 14.77
Longest ride : 101.42
No. of 100m+ rides : 1
So this year I did roughly half the number of rides I did last year, but typically did much longer distances.
I believe I'd done all the neighbouring counties and back by the end of 2016, but this year added a few others: Shropshire, Cheshire, Cambridgeshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Norfolk. And Wales. Will aim to add to that list in 2018.
I'd quite like to do the Wales trip again, perhaps as a preparation for a 200 mile ride. Here's to the longer days. As I type it's 4:18pm, and there's still a bit of daylight out there. Sunset is already 9 minutes later than it was at the earliest point, Dec 13th.
