Riding Numbers

I am a bit of a numbers geek at times, so of course, I like to look a little closer at some of the numbers behind the individual days.

First up is the highest day for the week which was Wednesday with a total distance of 33.4 km. While the lowest day was Saturday with a total distance of 13 km.

I got on the bike a total of 6 times this week for a total distance of 141.1 km. Giving me an average of 23.52 km per ride day across the week. My total time on the bike this week was 10 hours and 9 minutes. With my riding this week that gives me 319.8 km year to date, leaving 4,680.2 km for my goal.

Other Thoughts

There is a chance that I might have slightly overdone it this week on the bike. Physically this much time on the bike this week has worn me down a little. But also the idea I had behind making this a challenge was not to try and get it down in half the time. Of course, if that was to happen it would be nice.

I started the week needing 14.65 km per day to achieve my 5,000 km by the end of the year. By the end of the week, I had brought this down to 14.53km that I need. But that is going to be the thing 1km over any day, brings down my required average a little. But as soon as I miss a day that is another 14.5 km I need to make up in the remaining days. That is no big problem now, but towards the end that can be quite significant.
