Lies, Damn Lies, 2009 Statistics

Is it too early for a 2009 retrospective? No. My season's been over since November! As audited by the accounting firm Dewey, Cheetum & Howe here are my non-impressive stats for 2009:

Miles ridden... 3,405
Calories burned... 138,457 (equal to about 480 donuts)
Time in saddle... 290 hours, 2 minutes, 6 seconds
Maximum level speed... 42.7 mph (not for long!)
Longest ride distance... 102.3 miles
Maximum heart rate... 191 beats per minute
Coldest temperature... 36°F (January 28th)
Highest winds... 22 mph gusting 30+ (February 8th)
Best race finish... Pffft! not worth mentioning!
Number of DNFs... ZERO!
Best Cycling Experience... Mas-o-Menos in Terlingua!

Ride type breakdown...
Road... 68%
Trail... 24%
Trainer... 4%
Commuting... 3%

The only real surprise is how much road riding I've done. Need to put more trail time into the plan for next year. Hard to do living in the city... hmm... I see much travel in my future. Keep in mind because of my injury this is only 10 months. It's going to be difficult to compare next year's stats to these.
