What use is a pull-out paper mileage chart these days, you might ask. With the likes of Strava and similar apps ably doing the job of the training diary for many of us these days, you might imagine there's not much call for filling in little columns with highlighter pen each week. In fact, Cycling Weekly's iconic Mileage Chart, which readers have been filling out for more than 100 years, remains very popular.

We assembled a collection of lovingly tended charts from members of our CW5000 Facebook group, who talked us through their year in cycling and took us through the intricacies of their markings.

After cutting his teeth on local and national newspapers, James began at Cycling Weekly as a sub-editor in 2000 when the current office was literally all fields. 

Eventually becoming chief sub-editor, in 2016 he switched to the job of full-time writer, and covers news, racing and features.

A lifelong cyclist and cycling fan, James's racing days (and most of his fitness) are now behind him. But he still rides regularly, both on the road and on the gravelly stuff.
