Stats for September

September was a good month. I had no plans for any particular mileage but I did have a number of events lined up.

As you may have read, I took part in the following:
London to Brighton charity ride
Garmin Sharp Ride Out
London to Brighton Off Road
Rye Rotary Club ride

With all my commuting on top of that I managed to hit a total of 1,000km for the month. I'm pretty impressed with that. I've also worked out that I've not used my car for a single journey to work for a full 5 months. Lets see how long I can keep going for.

Rides: 47
Distance: 622.26 miles
Max Distance: 73.47 miles
Time: 44h 00m 06s
Elevation Gain: 2,858 m
Max Elevation Gain: 784 m
Avg Speed: 14.1 mph
Max Speed: 39.8 mph
Calories: 35,769

An animated sequence from the London to Brighton charity ride. Google made it automatically for me. It's called #autoawesome.


  1. Hey, just came across your blog - a great news story if ever there was one. I'm interested, and forgive me if this has been asked elsewhere, you clearly love cycling - how much is it about your weight and how much is simply for the pure love of riding. You certainly get out on them roads a lot!

  2. Good grief Toby - 1,000km! That's 600 miles in old money! Have you worked out your BPC (Benefit Per Commute)? Mine is £5 in combined fuel and parking and 500 calories. I just need to stop thinking of that in terms of cake...

  3. humancyclist - Thanks for your comments. I have to keep an eye on the food from time to time, especially if I have a particular fitness target but it's definitely more about the cycling. I cycle as much as I can and I love sharing my adventures with other people.

    There She Rides - 600 miles is a good amount. It includes a few decent length leisure rides on top of my commute. My commute would cost me about £4.30 per day in fuel and I burn at least 600 calories.


Thank you for taking the time to comment
