It’s that time of year, time to ring in a new year. Bye 2016, although you weren’t too kind for some of my favorite entertainers. You took Glenn Frey and David Bowie early in the year. You had the Amgen Tour of California completely skip the Bay Area. You took Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, William Christopher(Father Mulcahy of Mash) at the end of the year. But nevertheless, I am still going to reflect on the past year.
I didn’t have any events planned for the year … No double centuries, not even a single century. I think I’ve decided to simply enjoy the ride, and not be forced into it from an event. I still managed to get in under 7000 miles for the year. I guess it’s the daily commute miles (yes, I can survive without driving a car).
This New Year’s Day was a bit strange. This year, me and my brother decided to split up our visit to LA, where I would stay in the Bay Area for Christmas, and I’d visit during New Year’s. However, this year, it’s on Sunday, so it didn’t feel different than any other day. Plus, all the bowl celebrations would take place on Monday, 1/2, instead of on New Year’s Day. So it just felt weird.
This year’s New Year’s Day ride was also a bit low key. It was smaller group of about 5 riders, but that was OK.
Great day to start the year off. Happy New Year.
