CC forummers meet up ? ? ? ? ?
Start my own business in January, be successful by mid March, making large amounts of cash by the summer, sell business and retire on my multi million pound fortune this time next year.
I planned to return and work in China. I've arrived today and will start work on the 2nd January, so far so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cycle more. Get more mileage in from spring (home to work). Get my five year old to cycle unaided (my back aches from yesterday, trying to keep him upright) so we can get out and about. Sort out my bike set-up which is causing me problems at the moment. Other than that, the usual; be happy, live long and prosper. Oh and help others more.
I plan to read "The Death of Marco Pantani", thanks Longers, itarrived on Saturday.
Apart from that, I have the 100km a month challenge on this very forum, the Dartmoor Sportive, hopefully The Exmouth Exodus and "The Rat Race" in Bristol to look forward to. Sometimes I wonder if it would be better to just be fat and happy
Happy New Year all
Take more (and better) photos than last year's 2000+ total.
Be more understanding of the needs of my ageing cat.
Be more discriminating in my tv viewing habits, esp not watching re-runs of films I've seen 20 times before (not even Die Hard).
Each year I set myself three goals, this year it was:
1. Ride a century
2. Fly a glider
3. Climb Ben Nevis
All achieved, for 2008 it's
1. Ride at Manchester Velodrome
2. Stand on top of Sydney Harbour Bridge
3. Go to the Royal Albert Hall (I know it's a pit, I've just never been)
Get a few more races under my belt.
Be lighter than I was last year
And maybe Alpe D'Huez.
And maybe (just maybe) get married.
Get a job, preferably one that is moderately interesting, but not overly stressful, and will cover my basic expenses and be part-time.
Finish (or be well on the way to finishing) my PhD.
As always, eat less, do more exercise. This one never really works out...
Did you find the treasure/cache?
I rather fancy a gentle pootle around the delights of The Netherlands.
I was contemplating the idea of setting myself a challenge ... not upto LEJOG type things (oh for the time to do that) but was wondering whether there is a cycling equivllent of the Race for Life (though I am prepared to go further than 5 kms). Any suggestions ?... I normally cycle between 5 - 15 miles a day depending where I'm working each week, and I would like it to be a challenge but not an unreachable one.
I am starting to plan a ride from lands End, back to where I live taking in the sustrans routes, The Cornish way and the west counrty way. The from Bath back to Hertfordshire. It would be about 400 miles and would keep me occupied for a week or so.
