OK....I did the math for our rides. All but one was recorded on my GPS and the one I didn't have a GPS for was a ride I had made many times so the mileage was easy to come up with. I actually rode biscuit 522.1 miles on the trails for the year 2011. Amazing. I made the goal actually when we were riding at Brazos Bend. I met my first goal of 400 miles and surpassed it by 122 miles. I actually couldn't ride for nearly 4 weeks. I did one short 1 mile ride at the 3rd week - it is when I had knee surgery. Imagine the miles I could have racked up!!!
I made 74 trail rides this year..the shortest being .8 miles and the longest 13.6. It does show on this log a 15 mile ride but that was actually two rides in one day combined. The average for the months was 43.5 miles. I rode more miles in the last half of the year but that was because I went on 4 overnight trips during the last half of the year.
I did ride Biscuit in the arena quiet a bit when I first got him and have continued to do some riding there but not much. I am much for comfortable out on the trails.
I am looking forward to more riding in the year 2012. I do have a camping trip for training planned with Lee Ann up at Ebenezer the third week of January. The first weekend of February is our 25 mile limited distance ride. I also have an overnight trip to Ebenezer planned in February and March. April is up in the air as to where we will go to ride. For Memorial Day I do want to go riding somewhere - hopefully in Mississippi. I am setting a goal of 600 miles for 2012. I won't have a surgery leave to deal with and there are trips planned and I plan on RIDING.
It was so much fun to keep the log, make the trails on the Garmin and track everything. I will continue to do...all of my nerdiness is just bubbling to the surface!
