    As the title. I would love to get to 10,000 miles next year, and have tried a few times now. This year was on target until June 21 when some blind tw*t threw me over the bonnet of his car, it all went to pants after that.

    2019 will be take 2 for me....I hope

    What`s your aim?

    Having had to spend time recovering from my operation during 2018 I'm way off my target.

    However, I'm going to set 7500 again for 2019.

    As much as I can manage after recovering from my upcoming knee surgery. Let’s say 2500

    My target for 2018 was 7500 miles which I thought was easily achievable. I regularly ride 180+ miles per week. What I failed to factor in was holidays, poor weather etc. and quickly slipped off the pace. I'm on 5957 and will be putting in a ride to hit 6000!

    Climbing target was 25000 and I'm currently on 298,129 and will make sure I get 300,000 by December 31st.

    Targets for 2019

    Miles: 7500
    Feet: 350,000

    5000. I hit just over 4800 this year and I leave for the states tomorrow so 5000 won't happen this year:-(

    It is possible I have swam further in the last 6 months than I have cycled.

    I'd set a low target of 4000km in 2018 and had already cycled 3500 by the end of June. I'd thought that I'd get to 7000km for the year, only for everything to go pear-shaped. Psychological problems, intense heat - then simply losing the mojo. I look like finishing 2018 on around 4600km. So … I've set a target of 5000km for 2019, hoping I'll do a lot more than that … but who knows? I'm beginning to think that how far I cycle has very little to do with me - and a lot to do with circumstances that I simply can't control.

    I'll just get to 7,000 miles this year. I'd try for more next year but holidays may prevent that. I've cycled further than I've driven.

    My target is about 12.000km (which is abt. 7500 miles). Managed this for the last couple of years, yesterday I passed this mark while out on a ride to a neighbouring town.

    Not sure, I've lost 5 months of this year to illness and injury. Might try for 5,200 miles, 100/week.

    I never set a target. For me the miles don''t matter. I measure my success in the pleasure and enjoyment i get. So i am aiming for even more smiles in 2019. Happy cycling folks.

    10,000 miles.
    As I mentioned in another thread, this year is the first in 11 that I didn't manage to reach it. A couple of hundred miles off. Will be back on it next year.
