2011 in Miles

31 Dec

The day isn’t over, but my year in miles is:

Bike Rides: 2,384 miles

Indoor Riding: 615 miles

Total Biking: 2,999 miles

Swimming:  30 miles

Running: 43 miles

At 2,999 miles for the year, I’ll find some time today to go out and ride for a mile or two.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year! I appreciate you following For the Love of Bikes – may 2012 bring you many safe and pleasurable bike rides!

    Very impressive numbers! Your a great inspiration. Glad I found your blog while searching the Katy trail. Hope you and your family have a safe happy 2012.

    I would totally be in that bell choir! Kevin and I have Incredi-bells and they have slightly different pitches. We can make quite a racket with our “songs”. My 2011 in miles…

    Indoor Bike= 659
    Swimming= 7 (unintentional, but due to the heat wave in July)

    Are you familiar with Jim’s blog? That is where I saw that video. He always has some very interesting pictures, videos, thoughts, etc. that he posts.

    Happy New Year!

      I have a bell on my Jamis which I love and have so much fun ringing. When riding on the Katy, every time I spot a bluebird or indigo bunting I ring it – needless to say I get to ring it a lot there!

      Thanks for posting the link to Jim’s blog! I didn’t know about it but love it, can’t wait to spend more time there. I’ll add it to my blog roll here.

      Congratulations on your mileage for 2011! You had a great year! Happy 2012!

    Thank you for taking the time to blog. I have been to your blog a few times. I found it by trying to find out information about the Katy Trail. I have bookmarked it and will read more of your thoughts when I have time.

    Calculated my miles since I started riding in the middle of April, 2011. To date, I have ridden 2300 miles on my bike and 720 on my daughter’s stationary bike.
