Happy New Year

I have kept logs of cycling since 2007. In 2016 I converted Excel spreadsheets to Tables in the TablePress plug-in.

Some years I noted some days when I might have cycled but did not. In 2011 I started to make regular long walks (partly therapy after a stoke).

I live 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. More on Victoria Routes.
