50,000 Up!

Ade's Road Cycling Blog

I’ve just hit an interesting milestone.  Since I returned to cycling in 2009 I started recording my rides and I’ve just passed 50,000 miles!  In doing so, I’ve used over two million additional calories that I wouldn’t have otherwise, which is pretty staggering!  This has, of course, allowed me to eat approximately two million additional calories too!

The map above shows where I’ve cycled in those 8 years – I’d love to have cycled in more places but I have had a fantastic time regardless.  Thankfully, this blog serves as my “memory” – here are some of my favourite and memorable rides and events.
