What a year 2016 has been! While it’s done and dusted, there were many highlights to the year. Over 25% of my life (excluding an average of 8 hours sleep per day) was spent on the bike this year.
Total distance for the year 30,081km
Total climbing for the year 356,417m, it’s like climbing Mt.Blanc 74 times, it is 4,810m high and the highest peak in Europe.
Average speed (includes extreme MTB) 20.25kmh
Longest spin 500km with 4,910m of climbing
Most climbing in one spin 14,714m during 17 reps of Tabayesco over the course of 347km and over 16 hours of riding the bike.
KOM’s 13, but here are the one’s we’re most proud of
- 19th on Femes
- 2nd on the steeper part of Femes ….ok we kind of cheated on that one, we took our time getting there 😉
- 7th & 9th on descents from San Bartolome towards Playa Honda on our 500km spin. Both these KOM’s were achieved after 465km of cycling in the legs!
Shortest spin 2km, we didn’t log all of the short ones…. but this one was just to catch up with friends and wish them a Merry Christmas 🙂
Happy New Year everybody, hoping you all have an even better 2017!
Stay posted for our New Year Resolutions, it’s going to get a lot more interesting…….
