I'm big on New Year Resolutions. The New Year brings new beginnings. No more dwelling on my failures of the past or resting on my laurels of success. Time to set our sights on new goals. I have more resolutions than are penned here, but since this blog is about cycling - I figured I would stick to the cycling specific ones:
2009 Cycling Related Resolutions:
1. Drive my truck to work less than 25% of the time - I already commute by bicycle and have been doing so for more than 15 years. However, due to inclement weather coupled with commitments at work and home, I still drive to work 40% - 50% of the time. Coupling cycling and public transportation, I want to trim those numbers in half.
2. Complete a triathlon (international or olympic distance) - I know this isn't entirely cycling - some may argue it isn't cycling at all. Well - I can assure you, I am not a triathlete. I am a cyclist wanting to do a triathlon.
3. Ride at least 3 centuries - riding 100 miles is not all that big a deal physically. However, finding the time is another question all together. That's why I'm limiting myself to 3.
4. Start blogging and create a web site for 'cyclingaffair.com". As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I am new to this thing and have a lot to learn.
Well there you go. My 2009 resolutions. They are out there for the world to see. Hold me accountable.
