No garage, no shed but three bikes in the spare bedroom/workshop/tip.
None of them mine.

How many miles in February? car/bike/hovercraft etc?

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

Went from 127127 to 128428 in the car. 1301 miles.
Had a bus journey to collect my new bargain basement car, my only public transport escapade this month. 16 miles. Read the Metro cover to cover :)
..and broke my duck on the bike with a very good fair weather ride , which was roughly 4-5 miles.
no wild water swimming.

A measly 57 off road miles this month over 3 rides, about 100 miles in the car and a month's school runs!

about 100 miles in the car


Thats some achievement. I did anticipate my car mileage declining now I dont do a commute any more, but I regularly rack up over 1000. Maybe I should cycle to screwfix and get eurocarparts to deliver from now on!

I only use my car for the shopping and evening drop offs for hockey and guides, for a while I did the shopping on the bike with the trailer, was fine once you were moving but needed to find the smoothest route for traffic home! ;-)

My C5 didn't get used at all in January and only got used in February for a mercy mission to run a friend to hospital so she could get her broken wrist put in a cast, and a lovely run up to Greenham Common. I've done well over 20(!) miles on the electric bike in February though :)

Re: How many miles in March?

Pretty much a month ago I got my lastest bargain basement motor A Nissan Micra K12 for £100. The milometer now reads 054402

When I got it it had 53,240 on it so if my maths is right thats 1,162 miles for the month. Glad I'm not on a PCP with 6000 miles/year allowance.

Changed the oil and filter and put petrol in it. Quite comfortable really, decent enough seats. Gave it a decent run 200 miles ish down to Thornton-le-Dale in North Yorks, and up Sutton Bank.

North Yorkshire round those parts, and many others is lovely, and plenty of interest as testified by me depositing it in the "Nice places to stop off at" thread on many occasions.

How many miles in April?

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

It is a simple thread. As time goes on it could even be semi-useful. I rarely remember exactly when I did the oil changes on my own car, and the rest of my "maintenance fleet". A simple note here and its easy to look up :-D

To this Month
55396. 6 miles short of 1,000 this month. Just put petrol in it, nothing else. Longest trip...to the delights of the Flooring Superstore, Portobello Trade Park, Birtley. Doesn't quite meet the requirements for "the nice places to stop off at" thread, but good for flooring and artificial grass!

My youngest uses them - they are very pleasant and helpful, always make a point of greeting her when she visits (she has spent a lot of money there).
I will be using them soon, new floor for kitchen, dining room, lower stairs and ground floor bedroom, maybe entrance and utility.

As for miles this month - not many. A couple of hundred in the car as there was a trip to Teesside. Very little walking as I have been DIYing at my house and son's new house. I did walk to his a couple of times so probably two miles total there (I went the long way round) :)

Oh farsands & farsands!

Let me think, say 12 miles a day by a variety of public transport each weekday, about 500 miles each w/e, however far it is to Heathrow by Tube on Good Friday (+ the miles I walked within Terminal 3) 3953 to Chicago, 2443 miles to LA (I think) & say, 1,000 miles back, as far as Tucumcari, NM.
