A Record-Breaking July (Almost)
OK, we didn’t break any records. Not really. But, a couple of weeks ago I though we might do more miles in July than we’d done in June. Bloody Hell!
The sun came out, we got our bikes out and we did some miles. Boy, did we do some miles?!
As I write this on the first day of the #Aug100 there are 7,330 leisure (and turbo) miles on the spreadsheet, of 8,460 miles in total. That’s more than any month except April, when the #30daysofbiking was in full swing.
What an awesome effort. I’m humbled, and proud, and simply chuffed to be known to you all. Superstars, you are.
New Members, Old Friends
During July, people like Lloyd at @cyclingnirvana and Craig at @fruitmeister have joined the fray, clocking up some serious mileage. It’s great to have you along, guys! (If you want to say Hi, or if I’ve missed your name off, drop a comment below and make yourself known!)
Once again, Mental John Berry has topped the 1,000 miles for the month, winning whatever award I want to call it this month. Let’s just call it the “Mental John Berry Award” from now on, shall we? He’s a nutter. He denies it, but he’s either lying or simply wrong.
Faithful friends like Matty, Jo Simcock and Chris Byrne have quietly pedalled away, chucking over 1,000 miles in between them. You’re fantastic.
On a personal note, a modest 132 miles puts me in 26th place, but it’s 132 miles I know I wouldn’t have done without the peer pressure. Month after month, I owe you all big thanks and probably a bunch of years on my life (but maybe off my knees) 🙂
Below you should see a graph of the current status. Feel free to copy & paste to your own blogs or wherever you like. Get some more people to join, why don’t you? That’d be lovely!
Here’s a link to the spreadsheet, have a look!
