WELCOME! I've been cycling through the Southeast Valleys of Wales since 2010 and I can't say (or show) enough about the place. I just love it. So if you've got the interest and would like to spend some time... sit back and let me show you some of the fabulous places I've discovered.

Goodbye 2015...

What a year! I had big plans and small plans... loads of events and exciting trips... some ideas never materialized and some were better than I could have imagined.

Overall it was a crazy-busy and fantastic year with almost record breaking mileage on the bike. I didn't reach my goal of 8k, but I came pretty doggone close - especially considering the amount of rain we had in November and December. (163 miles in December... HELLO?)

What I most proud of; however, is the number of days I rode 100 miles or more. I try not to chase numbers just for numbers sake... but it's too bad I didn't get another 31 miles in so that i could brag a bit over having ridden a thousand miles in nine rides!

And from the look of my blog... it appears too that 2015 was the year of the spreadsheet! Good lord, I went to town on those things. I didn't see it in myself, but I really dig compiling all this useless data!

So with that said, here's one more table I'll throw at ya. I'm pretty proud of the numbers... especially when you consider that I've averaged over 6k for four years. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself!

But if this hasn't been enough for ya and ya still want more, ya can feed yer mathematical appetite with more exciting numbers in rectangles here!
