2013 ride stats

Posted in Uncategorized on January 27, 2014 by 41flyersracing - o'kelley

Last year I did a post on how many miles I rode in 2012.  Well, here are my stats for 2013 according to TrainingPeaks, where I try to post all of my rides.

Miles on my mountain bike(s): 775

Miles on my road/cx bike(s): 816

Miles on my indoor trainer: 946

Total Elevation Gained: 120,500 feet


These compare to 617 (mtb), 636 (road), 1225 (trainer), and 134,100 feet climbing from 2012.  It appears that the total mileage is almost identical (59 miles more in 2013), but my elevation gain was less.  Some of the elevation gain difference however can be chalked up to switching to what I believe is a more accurate GPS this past summer….I was likely getting false boosts in my elevation gains before.

This also shows that I covered more miles outside and less miles on my trainer, which was something I set out to do as part of my goal for 2013.  While I wish I would have found time to ride more, nonetheless the total isn’t too bad for someone with a work schedule like mine….i.e. riding over 2500 miles while probably averaging 50+ hours per week working is something I can be happy with.

For 2014?  Who knows, but with my new mountain bike just a few months old I plan to make it a point to ride even more.  Problem is, we’ve been having perhaps our coldest winter in decades and there just haven’t been any weekday opportunities.  But hopefully the next 11 months will cooperate nicely.



2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,900 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.
