2016 isn't finished just yet, but one of my objectives has just been ticked off! As autumn indicated I had a chance of hitting 10,000 miles (16,093.44 km) in one year, I took a few detours and longer routes home to bump up my miles per week, and I don't quite believe it, but Thursday morning I smashed through the 10,000 mile marker.
Feels a bit like this:
But the reality is that the mile was somewhere criss-crossing Nottinghamshire/Leicestershire on my daily commutes. No camera, fan fare or podium girls, just a smile, and a "oh yeah!" while riding.
What the number look like is this:
In more understandable terms;
- 16,144 km is 10,031 miles or all the way to the tip of South Africa via Turkey..
- 636 hours is 26.5 days (nearly 4 weeks solid).
- 420,881 calories is equal to 1,553 slices of pizza or 498 Big Mac meals or around 4,000 bananas.
- Eddington means I have done 47 rides which have been at least 47 miles, 115 rides which have been at least 115 minutes.
- The rest are self explanatory.
I'm towards the thin edge of the wedge at the 98.7% mark, but not that stupid.
