2018 Biking Statistics

Minneapolis got hit with a major snowstorm in the middle of April. This delayed the start of the biking season considerably. Since I am now retired, I was able to make up the 500 miles I normally complete by the end of April. Fortunately the last half of April provided nice biking weather. The summer was hot but not too bad for biking. Fall was much colder and wetter than normal. This cut into my Fall biking too. Still a lot of great biking this year and I made my goal of 4000 miles.
