Errandonnee 2021 wrap-up

Errandonnee is a challenge where you have 12 days to complete 12 errands by bicycle or on foot. This post completes my series of entries for the 2021 challenge.

You can read more about Errandonnee here.

I finished my Errandonnee challenge last week. It was a lot of fun, but a surprising amount of work. I bike commute a lot every week, but I usually follow a few basic routes for regular necessities. The Errandonnee rules require that you try a variety of “errands” and encourage creativity. Some of my rides ended up being much further and more complicated than I expected. If you haven’t started yours yet, or if you plan to participate in upcoming years, then my advice is to make a plan with a schedule and stick to it.

Statistics

Date range
May 9 through May 20
Total errands
12
Total mileage
67 miles

The mileage is a conservative estimation since I didn’t always run my GPS. I stopped worrying about it once it was clear I’d be well over the minimum of 30 miles anyway.
