How's you're Yearly goals coming along???

I'll start it off.....I wanted to do 5000k this year, Currently at 2077.5, so bit to go yet, but doing longer spins now compared to the beginning of the year... also wanted to do a sportive and I have done 2 now, (New Inn 100k & Kilbeggan 100k)and third on Sunday (Croi 120k) After that I want to get a Turbo trainer set up in the garage (which I recently have made space for my bike stuff) with maybe a monitor/screen for winter training.....How you lot getting along????

I have set out to do 4500km this year. I'm at 2048km, Strava is telling me that i'm 101km ahead of pace. I think i might set my target to 5000km, depending how the year goes. I consistently commute through all sorts of weather, so i think i'll come closer to 5000.

3,312km with a yearly target of 6,000 so am well ahead of target at this point.

28% ahead to be exact, I didn't even go near Strava to answer the question! I download reports from Strava into a spreadsheet which then produces all sorts of shiny tables and graphs for me. the joys of being an Excel nerd

if I keep going at this rate I'll hit 7,699km for the year. as you can see my spreadsheet gives me a lot of useless information too

I’m at 2369 at the moment so should hit my 5000km target. Just had 7 weeks away from commuting due to a course, but got a few spins in to keep me ticking over and not let my average slip too much. Not done a sportive yet this year, but have signed up for the Reservoir Dog in September

Had a great start to the year ... passed 6000kms and 75,000mts last Saturday - 50% of both distance and elevation annual targets! Approaching 275 hours which will be 50% of target too. Distance will slow down now as I spend more time on the MTB!

North of 3500km but I commute a good bit by bike so easily done. I only use Strava intermittently though so last month is showing 750km and all the other months are about 200km, even though 600km minimum is commuting.

I was somewhat delusional when I set my goals prior to the arrival of a little baby...oh how naive I was! My goals are now orientated to hours of sleep rather than hour of cycling.

I'm the same ... 140kms a week just commuting ... relatively easy to get decent numbers with that base!

Aiming for 10k this year. Currently sitting on 3555. Absolutely smashing the stats v last year and with a big summer coming up I'm feeling confident of hitting it
