Current Year Table

I am logging my bike rides in 2022 (distance travelled and other details) in a LibreOffice Calc sheet on a home device. I publish current year distances in a TablePress table below.

In 2022 I started to lubricate my drive chain in melted paraffin (aka hot wax). I use Molten Speed Wax (“MSW”) on YBN SLA chains, supplemented with Silca Super Secret Chain Coating (wax in emulsion) after the first few rides. I used Silca Synergetic wet lube on a SRAM chain in early 2022 before I started to wax, and on a second SRAM chaiin when supply chain issues held up my supply of MSW. The table has columns noting which chains I used, and cells calculating the distance on each waxing of the chain. There is a table with more details on the chains.

Previous Years

I used cycling computers to record my cycling trip distances. I used a spreadsheet application on a desktop computer to log the rides 2007-2015. In 2016 I converted the spreadsheets for years to that point to tables in the TablePress plug-in the WordPress CMS. My logs for the years 2009-2021 are located in year end posts:

Some years I noted some days when I did not ride, and some other events or activity. In 2011, I started to make regular long walks (partly as therapy after a stroke).

Posts

I blog about the new tech on bikes.

I like thru axles and disc brakes.

I live Victoria West, an area within the boundaries of the City of Victoria west of Victoria harbour, adjacent to the Township of Esquimalt. From 2006 to 2020 I lived in James Bay, a residential area on a peninsula between the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Victoria Harbour, a block from Dallas Road, which runs along the Strait, on the southern edge of the community.
