New Year Objectives

Cycling wise over the next year I am setting myself a few objectives. We'll see how we go.

Total distance = 6000 km (seems achievable enough)
Complete an Audax Super Series (1 x 200km, 300km, 400km and 600km)
Ride at least 5 times a week.

My problem last year was really about time. Didn't have enough time for long rides, so didn't ride. This year I've worked out a few short routes (20ish K) that I can easily do in an hour before going to work. Longer rides can and will wait for when I have more time. They should be physically easier as well because I will be fitter from the daily riding. That's my theory anyway.

As it happens I've enjoyed a couple of shorter rides so far this year and a nice extended ride with Henry and Greg yesterday out through the hills around Kiama. It was a nice morning.

Mileage in Kilometers = 124

All good goals and you're making a good start on the distance target already.

Yeah, one of the things that really clarified for me last year was "just riding" is enough, as long as it's regular. Fit it what you can, when you can (and even when you can't).

Go for it!

Good one Grant. I found regular commuting last year to be a great base for the Great Southern 1200.
Say hello to Greg ans Henry for me. I will probably see them at the Alpine.

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am still tempted to say: really good!
