A Cycling Recap – 2016

I wanted to create this update before 2016 is too far gone in the rear-view mirror. It’s simply a recap of where I’ve cycled over the year. Cycling as a hobby started in February when I bought the London Road bike, and then I went out most weekends and occasionally after work. Admittedly, it tapered off towards the end of the year with starting university again and the cold weather. But I am still pleased with the amount I did.

In 2016, I cycled:

1911 miles – 3085km
365 hours – 376 rides (inc. commutes)

It’s doubtful that I will beat 3000km this year, there’s too much university work that needs doing. However, I do plan to explore towards Wareham a bit more as that area is looking a bit neglected.

My favourite photo from cycling has to be the oak tree somewhere near Braggars Lane in the New Forest. I always stop and have a quick rest before carrying on. It’s not the quietest spot in the world but it has a nice feel to it.
