Glyn's First 1000 miles done

Who would have believed it. Since August 09, when Petra convinced me to get up of my big bum and go cycling I have now pedaled myself over 1000 miles (1600 km) horizontally and over 4500 m vertically at an average of 22 something kmh. During that journey I have also managed to lose over 20kg. Unfortunately Everest base camp is at 5380m so although I have climed a fair old way I am not even close to getting to the top of the world. Everest itself is 8800m! Still half way there.
