Danny's New Mileage Tables & Graphs


While I have kept track of my running mileage total since 1968, I didn't keep track of yearly mileage totals till 1978 (the year I pledged to ride 1 million miles in my lifetime). These post 1978 miles are well documented in detailed training journals known as "Demon Daniel's Diaries". Before the modern age of cycling computers (which I began using in 1985), I used to measure my mileage by setting a divider to one mile on the map scale, and counting off the distance on the map.

Here are my year to year mileage statistics:
