I was pretty obsessed with tracking elevation last year, but have stopped this year. A lot of commitments are keeping me to 1 mtb ride a week so trying to squeeze more time in on the bike via commuting which is pretty flat. More miles, but while I was ahead of last year through June or July I'm pretty sure my total would be under 250K if I was still tracking every ride.
rednova's numbers are from Marin, most good riding here requires a lot of steep climbing. It's hard to ride 20 miles without at least 3.7-4K of climbing, 187 is right on the money.

My spoon is too big!
I'm with Buzz Cut. No electronics for me. If I were aiming for some arbitrary mileage, or climbing goal, it would just stress me out. I ride to relieve stress, not add to it.

But of course. Exercise and fun all rolled into one.

Trying to get younger.

3920 miles to date
I didn't use Strava actively until May of this year.
Elev Gain: 302,438ft
Three years to get there, half a million feet!
Up St Joseph's Hill everyday.
Overall a solid active year for a guy w/four kids and a busy work schedule.
The great thing is my son who is 8 has really taken to riding so hopefully I'll be able to continue "double ride" weekends and maybe break 350K next year. All miles and footies are a gift!
