I've decided to rehash an old poll of mine but have added a few categories in the upper ranges.
I should add that if you use Tapatalk you won't be able to view or vote using the poll feature.

I did 12,532 kms. Not as many as last year (13,878) and saved myself 60 hours for something or other.

8479 for me. Less than last year where I cracked 10,000. I thought doing an Ironman the km's would climb with all the training but I didn't factor in the 6 weeks off after it!

7000 and something for me - up a little from last year if I remember correctly. Would love to hit the 10k but with the running and swimming thrown in its a little hard....
Feel like a slacker with the other numbers people are throwing up!! ha

7500 plus a few hundred when Garmin was dead, all those KM and still cannot ride up a hill with any speed
maybe a few more kms to catch up and hills will be mine, I doubt it somehow

Thank you for riding with me and waiting for me at the top of the hills.
I loved every kilometre.

Had 2 months off the bike and still made 9000kms for the year. Down on last year but happy just the same. Will try for 11k next year depending on holiday destinations :)

8130 in 2014.

About 500 less than last year but it feels like I have had a much slacker year so go figure.

Next year I want to get fitter without investing more time. Think I need a plan or a strategy or some knowledge or something.

7711. How did I do that!?

Resolving to kick my Garmin/Magellan/Strava habit by 2050. I can do that or die trying.

4168 in 183 hours (so average 22.7km/h)
down from last year (5163/218/23.5)
(so 35 hours saved, at 27.6 km/h)

(But then I remembered that this year included a couple of months letting a knee get better, then three months away a lot with work, then another month sorting out the knee again, so maybe not so bad.)

12,637km. Take that, Eleri! But less than last year. Boo. This year's highlights were the NSW Hill Climb champs, the Kurrajong Classic KOM, and the roads of Japan. I resolve to ride more next year, because I know my family want me to.

Me too ... my partner seems to actually have a training plan whereas I just go riding 2-3 days a week.

10,000km is the goal for 2015.

Goals
TDU - January
Three Peaks - March
Ken Dinnerville - May
Clubs TTT - July

maybe a few road races in there somewhere

5252km. More than the previous year at least. Aiming for 6000 this year, plus some more racing with better results.

9510km for me. More than I thought.

Not quite as many as 2013 where I cracked the 10,000 but hoping to get out of bed more often this year.

Well done guys!

I did 7237km for 2014. The 9 weeks out with a broken wrist and a few more for the honeymoon didn't help. 10k this year with any luck.

Every time you go for a ride on the road or track (not spin) you count the kms. You could write them in a little book or make a spreadsheet. Then add them up like this: Ride 1 km + Ride 2 km ... + Ride n = Total

:-)

Personally I use a Garmin and Strava just tells me.

So how do you get the annual K's out of Garmin or Strava?

In Strava, up the top you will see 'Training'. Go down to 'Training Calendar'. That will allow you to scroll between years.

If you go to 'My Profile' and go to 'Training Log' on the right hand side this will allow you to see your activities on a month to month basis.

It's a bit cumbersome and probably one thing Strava could improve.

1,328k

Bit of an effort to sum up, copy and pasted the list from Garmin

The only event with an average speed over 40kph is the Sydney road titles. Must avoid hills in 2015

So I did 6,420.5 - 1000 down on 2013.

This years goals are:
Eat more great food & drink lots of lovely Pinot Noir
April: B2B
June: Try not to get too dropped by J & M & J in Spain & France & ride up one icon climb to add to my extensive list of two (Col du Tourmalet)
July: Drive the team car behind the masters women's TTT team
Sep: Amy's Gran Fondo (and a side trip to the new country dining Mecca - Brea)

Try to ride a bit more during the week.

The non-cumbersome way is to go:

<training calendar>
<2015> but click on the LH arrow so it says:
<2014> and then look to the summaries on the right at the same level.

Mine says
52 WEEKS 538 Hours 12,532.2 kilometers 1084Personal Records 352 Activities.

Quite comprehensive really.

That's a much easier method but Strava is showing less K's than Garmin

Thought you were saying add it up month by month. But anyway, same result.
