2012 cycling wrap up
Increased both the target distance and the percentage completed in the last year; up from 5000km to 5200km, and completed 97%, up from 94%. Still plenty of room for improvement though. It would have been worse but I forced myself out for three last gasp rides, one onand then two on .
According to my GPS, here’s my ride report for December 2012 and for all of 2012:

2013 cycling statistics
Here’s to 2013! Rather than monthly postings, I’ll update the following table each month:
|Mon||dst.||YtD dst.||YtD asc.||Ytd Avg.spd|
So 4507km of a target of 5200km. That’s 86%. Worst target percentage for a few years.
Dropped off badly, for most of the year I was struggling with a near permanent pinched nerve in my neck that caused pins and needles in my right arm almost every time I rode. I’ve no idea what triggered it but it made almost every ride a slog and took a lot of fun out of it. Many trips to the physiotherapist, some stretches and holidays and it seems to be recovered by Christmas.
Number crunching on my Garmin tracks shows 220 days with “commute” in their name. A quick and dirty check of the work wall calendar and my diary says there were 247 work days in 2013, and I spent 24 days on leave and three days away sick. Bingo, all adds up. No trains. No buses. Full compliance!
