New Year Plans

The holiday season has zoomed past in a blur and I am out of the starting blocks of the New Year in a full out sprint.  My mind is already churning out plans for my adventures in 2012.  I thought I'd let you in on them so you could know what to look forward to in the coming year.

In past years, my cycling season revolved around one major, week long bike tour.  This year, I'm gonna try something, not just a little, but a lot different.  

- Instead of a single, full week, I'm going to break my adventures into not less than five - 4 day weekends.  By combining vacation, with flex time, I'm figuring I can up my days of adventure from  7 days to 20 days without using any additional vacation.

- Instead of solely bike touring, I'm going to diversify my mode of personal transport.  The below pic is what Santa Clause brought me for a Christmas...

Now - before you go off donning sackcloth and smearing ashes upon your forehead, let me assure you, I am not walking away from the bike.  There are still many more miles to ride in my legs and many more stories to be told.   I am simply endeavoring to diversify.  At a high level this is what I'm tentatively planning:

Weekend 1 - 4 day bike tour

Weekend 2 - 4 day hike

Weekend 3 - 4 day bike tour

Weekend 4 - 4 day kayaking trip

Weekend 5 - 4 day hike

At this point I don't know where or when, but you can rest assured that I will be sure to keep you in the loop as plans develop.

I realize that this blog is about bikes and I plan to keep it that way.  But, as vain as it sounds, it is also about me.  I will use it as a forum to also bring you, hopefully interesting tales of all my upcoming adventures whether they be on two wheels whirling, two legs walking or two arms paddling.
