I caved in this morning. faced with the prospect of a very hefty courier bag full of gear that needed to be hauled into work I surrendered to the fact that I would have to check my tyres if i didn’t want to pinch flat them on the way to work. They’d only dropped to 80 psi, but putting them back up to 120 made the whole bike feel different.
At lunch I decided it was time to update my ride journal over at MapMyRide. I’m not very organised at doing this, so it’s been the end of August since I filed any daily records. The only things in there are the occasional big ride at the weekend. After spending 15 or so minutes adding in entries, I thought it would be good to do some year on year comparison. How many miles have I done this year so far? How does this compare to the previous year?
Can I do this comparison? No. Why Not? Because the MoFos at MapmyRide have changed it now so unless you pay them $12 a month you cannot get more than 12 months of stats. $6 a month only gets you 12 months. What other added value to you get for $144 per year? No adverts. Not a great incentive.
So the question is. What to do next…
