    January: 4 rides, 6 points
    1st February: 31.95 miles - A ride of two parts: 11 miles ridden north of the Olympic Park on a Boris along NCN1 & Q2; followed by 20 laps of the Lee Valley Velopark road cycling circuit on a hired road bike - and - 1 point
    11th February: 37.76 miles - Ride down to Chesham and back with @Sbudge, featuring a couple of small-ish Chiltern climbs, but a lack of lung capacity meant I couldn't go fast or push on to do 50 miles like I wanted to - - 1 point
    17th February: 62.20 miles - Rode up to Silverstone and back; furthest north I've been on a ride that started and finished at home (with no trains or lifts involved) - - 3 points

    25th February: 31.42 miles - A very cold and in parts, quite icy ride (did have one brief "off"), mainly along the Bucks/Herts/Beds borders - - 1 point

    Total so far: 12 points

    Trying something different with my ride logs this year - rather than just a list of towns/villages I visited, I'm going to attempt to put a bit of a description of the actual ride instead. Might make it more relevant to anyone reading who isn't from my local area and so has no clue where the places I'm riding through actually are. However I will keep the Strava links just in case more details are needed
