Just ticked over 2000km (2017km) for 2013. I am thinking I will keep the same goal for 2014. With another baby arriving in April, that will cut down on cycling time and enthusiasm.

I'm gonna try for about 100km/ week this year. That is riding to work every second day (18km each way). Not going to stress about keeping the kms up while on holidays. Back to work on the 6th.

Any other New Years (Strava) resolutions?

yeh, last year I had a 2000km goal and got to about 1800 kms which really pissed me off. I have a hard time coping with not reaching goals hence the 540 kms I did in December to make sure I got it this year.

I think 2000km is perhaps a low goal but with the 2nd child arriving it will be much harder to cycle to work and find personal time.

100km per week is a solid goal. I was doing about 80km per week for the good months I put in during the year. I would ride in Monday morning, ride home Tuesday afternoon, ride in Wed morning, and then out Thursday afternoon. This left Friday for a couple of work drinks afterwards and a relaxing bus trip home.

You guys have me thinking.
I have no idea how many kms I rode this year but I am gonna make my new year stravalution to be 2000km of commuting.
Any trail rides will just be a bonus.

This has been a good week for me, rode 6 days.

Riding with kids for some of it brings the average down though.

Keep up the good work guys.

Been a big Strava user for a while now (running and riding), weird that I have only just seen this.
I'm involved.

I'd heard of strava but never used it until now. Must say I am loving it.

Back on the bike again after some time off. Will be aiming for 10,000km and 100,000m of elevation this year. Should be able to get 200km a week with commuting + the regular Turbo Tuesday + a few other rides here and there.

Had to replace a broken spoke as well as fit a new chain and a little tweak to some cabling to get things running smoothly again, so now keen to spend some time in the saddle. Better pull my finger out as it's been a slow start.

Also looking to spend a bit more time on the MTB as I've been a little neglectful of the trails since the weather has warmed up.

I have been using strava for the last few weeks so I thought I would join the ahb club, my rides are usually short <15km and at night after the kids go to bed, so I won't be on any leader boards but I do a fair bit of climbing and lately I have been practicing technical climbs.

cheers steve

Hell yes. My Garmin fell off my bike and under a truck last year, but if I can find a free iphone app that will do the job, I'll definitely join up! I've been riding for 24 years, around 15-20,000 k horizontal and 200 k vertical per yr, less as I get older and more responsible. I love climbing.

I joined the group a little while. Currently thinking about running the Brisbane half marathon so might be adding a few km's to the running in the next two months.

Is this the bike-porn thread ?

Here's mine, a few years ago when it was less beat-up:

Unfortunately the gt5 is not so good off hotmix, so I don't ride it so much anymore.
I need a mountain bike just to get out the driveway.

Another strava user here. Gotta love it. Will look through the thread and follow a few when I get a chance. Not much riding / running lately but that'll change soon.
