    Distances include cycling + walking
    March: 489.8 km (304.3 miles) = 38 hours 4 min
    April: 491.94 km (305.6 miles) = 43 hours 6 min
    May: 361.81 km (224.8 miles) = 35 hours 50 min
    June: 569.53 km (353.9 miles) = 41 hours 53 min
    July: 230.7 km (143.35 miles) = 32 hours 45 min
    Aug: 211.3 km (131.3 miles) = 28 hours 8 min

    Oct: 441.82 km (274.5 miles) = 47 hours 43 min
    Nov: 660.21 km (410.23 miles) = 60 hours 41 min
    Dec: 499.91 km (282.8 miles) = 54 hours 56 min
    Jan: 864.79 km (537.35 miles) = 65 hours 36 min
    Feb: 470.53 km (292.4 miles) = 40 hours 39 min
    March: 917.73 km (570.2 miles) = 66 hours 13 min
    April: 417.83 km (259.6 miles) = 40 hours 23 min

    April wasn't a brilliant month for me in terms of exercise ... I had hoped to do one or two longer bicycle rides but sometimes life intervenes in the plans. April ended up being an incredibly busy month with a heavier-than-usual workload at work + assignments due at university + the final steps of my citizenship process. I wrote the citizenship exam and then my ceremony was on April 29 and I am now officially an Australian Citizen! :):)

    May should be a calmer month, although I will be wrapping up the uni course I'm in so there will be work to do for that. Nevertheless, I hope for more kilometres than last May. :)

    @ birdgirl - What a great ride, and first time miles!

    My weekend riding didn't go as planned. I wanted about the same to get 50 miles. The only 50 that happened was the temp in mid afternoon with 26 mph winds. Frosted in 30's both nights.

    My son and I got in some nice rides over the weekend. Sunday we were riding to my mom's house when one of my pedals fell off. I lost my balance and fell and instead of catching myself with my foot I tried to catch myself with my hand. Sprained a couple of my fingers and my hand and now I'm wearing a splint for 7-10 days. Funny thing is I'm already talking to my husband about when I can go riding again. I decided I can probably manage one of the stationary bikes at the gym so I might try that out tonight.
