Is it really New Year’s Eve already? Gee, time sure flies by. Looking back, I rally didn’t sign any goals for myself, so I didn’t really prepare for any set of events. As a result, I didn’t do any doubles, so I was what you might say as normal?
Now I did do a couple if organized rides. First was l’etape du California … That was a tough one. We actually ride the same route that the pro’s raced on Stage 7 of Tour of California. At least I wasn’t the last one to finish. The second was Santa Cruz Mountain Challenge. I call that my local Death Ride.
This year, I also decided to be a commuter maniac. I didn’t keep track, but I think I was able to commute 90% of the days. It definitely was a different type of riding, and I also did a weekly night ride with the local meet up group. That definitely helped accumulate the mileage.
Here are the totals
So what’s up for 2014? Well I’m seeing a goal of completing DMD, Devils Mountain Double, 206 miles, and 18,000 feet climbing. What am I getting myself into?
