Daily Stats Summary

For the data freaks out there (like me), this is where I will maintain all the pertinent daily riding statistics like distance travelled, average speed, max speed and any other metrics of note.

For those who want to re-live the experience in more detail, I will also post links to the daily rides as captured by my Garmin Edge bike GPS (these links will require you to create a free Garmin account to view).
