Listed below is a basic break down of how 2016 went down. I kinda went nuts with spreadsheets, which you can witness in their full glory in the "Charts" section. But essentially, 2016 was a record year for both the overall distance and the number of days I was on the saddle.
☞ In 2016 I rode 9,609.3 miles over 164 Days.
I divided my rides into six basic types; however, some rides could be classified in more than one category. (ex: most all of the 100 mile rides were also "Solitaires"...) You may select the ride type to view additional details.
|Rides for Sustrans *||41||215:21||1,591.3||82,219|
|55 for 55 Event for Parkinson's UK||55||299:08||3,124.4||170,152|
|100 Mile Club||11||112:16||1,190.7||69,329|
* These numbers include both going to and from events as well as the ride events themselves.
Many of the rides I made during 2016 were for specific events. The outlines of those events are shown below. Any additional planning and/or organising is in the following table.
