Wow! If someone told me on 1 January that I would cycle over 5,000 miles this year, I would have quoted the famous line from that great Australian movie The Castle: “Tell ’em they’re dreamin'”. But here I am with just under three weeks left in 2013 and I have passed that seemingly magical figure.
Sure, we use the metric system in Australia. But 5,000 miles sounds much more lyrical than 8,000km. To put this into perspective, I cycled just 2,500km or 1,500 miles in 2012. Even taking the 3,100km (1,900 miles) of Cycling for Hope into account, that’s a massive increase in general cycling mileage over the past 12 months.
I wonder whether I’ll pass the magic 10,000km in 2014 … Who knows …
Total today: 12.4km commute to work + tonight’s commute home
