Cycling Stats & Life Data

What’s more exciting than a bunch of stats and data? – Nothing of course!

We never used to be much into stats, but the more we travel by bicycle, the more we enjoy capturing the data. It helps us stay on track with essential things like our budget, where we’ve stayed, our accommodation types and of course, to keep motivated as we see every single km we cycle!

As well as being awesome humans, the guys at peddling the planet (Tim & Linda) sent me a copy of their Google sheet, which I use to track my distance, expenses, elevation and more…
