2011: How'd you go now 2013

OK It's that time of year. Time to Flush out the secret trainers, boast/moan about, admit to or otherwise tell us about the amount of riding you did this year.

Include all your cycling including indoor trainers and spin bikes.

So, I'll go first.

I had a pretty average 2010 doing 2000km, with a chunk of that on an indoor trainer so for 2011 I set myself a rough goal of doubling that. Something I managed to do while mostly avoiding the trainer.

I'm pretty happy with my effort considering the busy year I've had (Weekly races at Rydal sure helped to bump up the numbers and keep me motivated)

Add in half dozen or so DH days and that's my year. How was yours?

Was going great till thyroid issues forced 4 months of no exercise, lost so much cardio fitness and gained too much weight. Finding it hard to find the motivation to start training again.

Not so good this year, shoulder injury late in the second half did me in. So I'm on the trainer now for at least another 2 months, however, I am determined to make up lost ground once I get back on the track in Mar/Apr, so watch this space in 2012.

jdb hang in there, maybe we can head off to Jenny Craigs together in the New Year?

Not as good as last year, which came to about 3,800km. But 1014km of the above was on knobblies compared to 700 last year, and not included is 16 or so hours on the spin bike compared to 5 and a half last year.

Aiming to stay injury-free and do better this year.

I only got my Garmin in May 2011 so I have roughly double the data shown below but it's still pretty average compared with everyone else!

Did 21 races. 9 on the dark side, 6 100k marathons, 1 club day, 1 teams event and a few other shorter races. And how could I forget the 6+6 in 47 degree heat.
More importantly I finally beat my younger bro in a 100k race.'s picture

Distance: 6386
Ave speed: 23.8
Ave HR: 135
Climbing: 71 km

But the sad part is mtb only 652 km, at an average speed of 14.6 km.

Gone from an mtb'er who trains on the road to a roadie who does a bit of mtb.

But what do you do when you live in the inner west? Hope to do more dirt km this year an improve skills.

I did around 1500km off road

Broke 4 bikes (3 mtn, 1 road)

Happy New Year!!

Not so many km's, (1077) - more a year of the following:-

  • Riding with some really good crew.
  • Meeting new people on the trails and having a chat.
  • Conquering that bloody hill out of Bedford Creek!
  • Riding my local with a huge grin on my face.
  • Seeing a mate really enjoy getting back into riding
  • The February BMORC bash ride
  • Stepping out of my comfort zone
  • Never leaving a man (or woman) behind

All the best for 2012 everyone!

give me a shout when you get up this way if you want someone to ride through Glenrock with, also depending on the day Awaba as well.

GAZZA's picture

somethings wrong!!!!
Garmin wasn't uploading my data from my 705 so i took everyones advice and moved to strava, pressed upload and it's been searching for activities for ever now.
The activities are on the Garmin as i can search my history and they're there!
I F@#%ing hate technology!

Cant get Nov or Dec up yet but,
Distance, 5135km
Time, 270hrs
Elivation gain, 96148m
Av speed 19kmh
av HR 137bpm
calories, 198675
What seems interesting is my average time is 1hr 31min
Average distance, 28.85km,
Put that with my average speed of 19kmh and i think ive been doing a lot of Mtb and local hill rides on the road rather than long distance road riding.
Especially when my longest ride was 118km!

Pretty Slow year for me, but it was all done on a MTB, and there is a lot of DH data in the mix here!

Total KM:1289 kms
Total Time: 162hr 30min
Average Speed: 8.3km/h
Average HR: 138bpm

Average time was 1hr 26min, with the average distance per session being 12.39km. Give that most of that was DH, that's not too bad I reckon.

Big Year for 2013, more off the bike than anything with buying a house, having our first kid and getting married. So spent 8 weeks off the bike during the year. However still decent numbers and managed to get some decent results on the road this year with a couple of podiums and some respectable results in NSW Opens:

Distance: 10,802.2km
Time: 359h 25m
Elevation Gain: 132,910m
Rides: 229

Hmm, been better years... Biking concerned

Bought a 'renovator' in February, had 2nd child in August (15 months after the 1st!) = 520km, 9,000 odd metres climbing and 18 rides... Shouldn't be too hard to beat that next year!!

dangersean's picture

Consistently riding to work, a decent training plan and some major goals saw the following stats for 2013...

Distance 12,967.2km
Time 551h 28m
Elevation 201,545m

Biggest year yet. Next year will be bigger and very interesting.

143 rides
321 hours
80.6kms climbing.

All on one mtb or another. No breakdown of dirt vs hard stuff. No commuting. Two countries, 3 States, 2 Territories.

Must have been a bit of this sort of checking going on as the Garmin website was down for a while today....

Brian's picture

2013 was a big year for me. Breaking the year into two seasons it has actually felt like two years packed into one.

I started getting coached for the second half of 2013 which saw my greatest improvements. I got my first individual podium at the Kowalski (3rd Men Vets) along with a couple of SXC Racing team podiums.

Now for the stats.

591 hrs
261 rides

13500kms for the year

About 3500kms more than last year.
Biggest ride 210kms
Most fun, and wet was an MTb social ride through Newnes and Wolgan.

Awesome work barnsy

GAZZA's picture

I can't find all my data on Strava but i've only clocked 344hrs and 7305km riding last year.
Can't find total altitude or anything more.
I did a lot on the trainer earlier in the year and didn't record any of it.

grantd's picture

No idea of total km's or elevation change.

Can you get an app that logs total number of jumps? Average jump height, length or air time? Or perhaps maximum/average g force in a berm? I think these are the important things to keep track of.

Other good things from the year include:
- a Rotorua trip in June
- many excellent post-ride cafe breakfasts
- I didn't break any body parts (except maybe a rib)
- the tracks keep getting betterer

ChopStiR's picture

I had beaten my 2012 stats before the Winter of 2013, by the end I had pulverised 2012 into dust. Very pleased with my 2013 performance. Although I must admit that most of my large rides have been on the roadie or cyclocross.
