2022 miles: 5489
Down from a 2021 whole of 6218 miles. I do know a few of you guys log 10K and even 20K yearly. Chapeau.
50 mile PR time: 2:43:02 (avg velocity: 18.4 mph)
Yearly I attempt to set a number of random PRs, however I solely managed one this previous 12 months. Did it on a closed loop in Prosepct Park, Brooklyn (no drafting). This was the primary time I attempted timing a 50 mile experience with the precise aim of hittting sub 2:45. Hit my break up instances simply, so I do know I can do sub 2:40, however I feel I would must push it a bit to hit sub 2:30-2:35.
With the roads and parks getting actually crowded and drivers not taking note of the place they’re going, off road-routes are beginning to look much more interesting to me. I did not assume good gravel driving was potential in Brooklyn, however doing a little bit of analysis, yow will discover lots of stunning rides within the Hudson Valley, the place I do the vast majority of my lengthy rides. So, I assume I will be trying into making an attempt out gravel this 12 months.
