Overtaking 2008

A month ago I overtook the distance I rode in 2009, today I overtook 2008.

I went out on the Bob Jackson about 12:30 and headed out along the cycle track towards Bristol aiming to ride until I got bored and then head home again. I made it as far as Easton in about 53 minutes before turning back. The track was fairly busy today, and one child almost took me off by deciding to swerve across the track as I was overtaking him. Once back in Bath I decided to loop round town to top the mileage up a bit, and got home after 35.5 miles.

160 miles to go to my next target, 2007.

Update: I also passed 12,000 miles since I started keeping records.

    Excellent, well done.
    I’ve done 56% of 2009, 36% of 2008, 35% of 2007, 58% of 2006 and 85% of 2005 – pathetic!

    Woke up at 7 to ride this morning, felt rubbish, went back to sleep. I seem to do that a lot!

    12,000 miles? Nice one. I’m a bit over 2000 miles shy of making it around the world since I started keeping records. Not sure I’ll manage that this year.

    I’m only half a world behind you then.

    Matt is getting on for a world and a half ahead of me!

    A world and a half ahead, and on a completely different planet.
