It is the end of 2013 and time to take stock of the year that was. It was a busy year and here are the stats...
I have taken 32 flights this year not including connecting flights. That's roughly a flight every 11 days.
I have spent 212 days (58%) of the year away from home with 196 (54%) of those away from my lovely and patient wife.
During my time away, I spent 141 days (39%) of the year staying in a hotel.
I have visited 29 cities in 8 different countries not including the smaller towns that stage races visit.
I had 55 international race days and covered a total of 31657km on bike. If I rode every day of the year, that's an average of 87km per day. If you only look at the days I did ride, I averaged just on 100km per riding day. That is 8419km short of riding the distance around the globe!
During these km's, I spent 1026hrs riding a bike which is almost 3hrs per day with an average speed of 30.8kph.
I climbed 317250m uphill which would get me up Mt Everest 35.9 times.
I went through roughly 4 cassettes, 6 chains and 20 tires on 3 different bikes and I have lost count of the number of tubes I have used.
Last but not least, I burnt 458067 calories while riding my bike which is 1624 McDonalds cheeseburgers.
I'm going to get a start on those cheeseburgers now. And maybe a head start on next year.
