It's easier said than done. But that, at least for me is the motivator.

On the crudd front,Seems I've got Bronchitis. The doc gave me some antibiotics (sic), some cough syrup.The syrup helps me sleep without waking up coughing. off the bike for now.

On bright side of this I'm losing weight ,of course that means I'm also losing muscle,at my age I've got a hard time maintaining muscle mass. Another fun aspect of aging..

Post up your 2013 mileage folks.

If I can manage to get out on the trails today, I'll get it up to 3800 miles.

Still battling major wrist issues and a former employer with whom I already had 5 surgeries. Just need 2 more to fix tendons. Argh!

M

not surprising.

a LOT of masters athletes just can't accept aging.

if there were stringent controls for the 'age groupers' at events like masters track and field nationals, triathlon worlds, etc, you'd be absolutely amazed at the number of athletes that would test positive.

Bummer....

1,500 for me - would have been more but a. I didn't start counting on MapMyRide until March/April time (Strava is for dick wavers ) and b. I just moved so that put a crimp on my mileage

On a brighter note, I now have plenty of room to set up my trainer, my rollers AND my water rower all at the same time

A little over 8000 miles, 560 hours and 900,000 feet of climbing in 2013.
It was not the best year for training (or racing)- one cancer death in the family and some signficant periods of illness for me kept me off the bike for about 5 weeks total.

I recorded 3,317 on Garmin's site. There's probably about 500 miles on the 750-mile Texas Stampede and the 400-km brevet where I turned my GPS off - or it shut itself down.

I initially felt badly about my miles in 2013 since I had about 5,000 miles last year but, it is what it is and I'm OK with that.

I have no major events for 2014 - volunteer at our brevets so others can succeed. I'll crew on RAAM and hopefully contribute to Jacquie Schlitter's success. You can view Jacquie's page here and my picture in on the crew page here.

I hope your 2014 is healthy, happy and successful!

MapMyRide says I did 460 miles in 2012, having picked up biking on a lark at the end of August. This year I have 1500 miles on MMR and 394 miles on Strava, there's probably a little bit of overlap between those two. I stopped recording my commute religiously at the end of September, since I kept up with it pretty well I'd estimate that I did another 450-500 miles that weren't recorded.

So I'd estimate that for 2013 I did about 2200 miles, give or take a hundred I guess I feel pretty damn good about that - that's certainly more miles than I put on my motorcycles this year (though this next year I may be trying to figure out how to reconcile the two hobbies).

MMR also estimated the number of calories I burned (a rough guide obviously), and extrapolating the extra miles from that I would guess I've burned about 160,000 calories from cycling (big guy here). Since I didn't really lose any weight, I'd say that cycling enabled me to drink about a thousand beers this year.

Not sure but I would prefer Tiawan over China. I miss the Made in USA on cannondales. If I ever get a new frame I will try to get one made here, Gunnar, Lynsky or something. No plans unless I pick up the miles though.
