There is something about the end of the year that seems to torpedo bike riding. In Maryland, you can usually ride all year. But between the end of year holidays, travel, additional errands, and getting together with folks that conspire to suck up all of my time. Since mod-November, I have probably ridden less than 50 miles. I missed 2000 miles for the year by less than 50 miles but I never seemed to have time.
The good news is that for once I did not put ten pounds on over the indolent holidays. So I am starting the new year with my normal end of year weight.
My goals for 2013 are
+ 2500 miles (again)
+ 150,000 calories
+ 1 200-kilometer ride (a populaire)
+ 2 metric centuries
+ 1 century
