Last ride of 2022

The perfect day to finish a great year.

First a nice easy spin to Nava with Xuancar and Rober.

Then a good effort climbing La Madera against the wind. 18 minutes at 285w (https://www.strava.com/activities/8315910713/segments/3044249500521788748).

Finishing with a sprint to get two wind assisted PRs (https://www.strava.com/activities/8315910713/segments/3044249500523065676 and https://www.strava.com/activities/8315910713/segments/3044249500525580620).

2022 was a fantastic year for me.

The 6th of August I declared myself in the form of my life (https://www.unbiciorejon.com/2022/08/i-am-in-form-of-my-life.html).

I finished “the season” at the beginning of October getting PRs up Broome Hall Road and Box Hill (https://www.unbiciorejon.com/2022/10/end-of-season.html

From October to the end of the year I was mostly focused on steady, endurance rides. Still happy with the numbers at the end of the year.

18,829 Kilometres. My biggest year so far, 8.16% more than my previous record (17,409 in 2021). It is now obvious that in 2023 I’ll target 20,000 kilometres.

4,002 of those kilometres, 21.26% of the total, were on the turbo. I think this highlights how important turbo sessions are for me. 

By bicycle:

  • 8,549 (45.40%) with my summer bike

  • 8,465 (44.95%) with my long distance bike

  • 1,343 (7.13%) with my old bike (I will use this bicycle only on the turbo now)

  • 472 (2.50%) with my Mountain Bike. I was considering buying a new MTB but with these numbers I don’t think I can really justify it
