    Default The "I will ride _____km in 2017" thread - commit and conquer here!!

    How far will you ride in 2016?

    Been meaning to post a thread like this for a while and SJP's thread spurred me in to action. Last year I wanted to clock 2500km on my bikes but injury decided otherwise. So this year I'm going to step it up to make up for lost KMs.



    In 2016 I will ride 2501 kilometers on my bikes in a mix of commuting and trail riding (I actually get to ride my fav trails as part of my commute to work every day. My life rocks.)

    How far will you ride in 2016?


    Feel free to update us on your progress, I'm currently sitting at 12.2km.

    Have at it.

    I rode 1300km on the MTB in 2015, so I say at least 1500km in 2016. Although with a second kid due in a month, I don't like my chances.

    Well, i'm going to shoot high and aim for 2000km. Keeping in mind, i have a torn medial meniscus, and heart failure. About 50% trail km's and the other 50% commuting to the local trails.

    Starting tomorrow.....

    Edit: just seen I done 152.6km from 13Th Oct, when I started riding. 2000km may be a bit much, but i'm sticking to it.

    2200km this year. 2015 was only 1600ish, 2014 was 4100km. Oh childless life was easy. Need to look into options to drag the little man around soon.

    Banged out 2500 last year, some road km though. If I can do 3k km this year I'll be happy. 3 kids and a needy wife sure limit time though

    Did 3200 last year, that was the worst I've done in 4 years. Going to see if I can break my all time record this year - 6038km!!

    Did 2703km last year all trail riding, just missed out on the 3000 I was working towards. Sickness, injury and weather held me back. Trying again for 3000 next year.
    No dear, I haven't bought another bike. Count them, still the same as before.
