4000+ on the odometer
Stop drinking so much beer (not easy to do when you brew your own)
Get back to (maybe under) 15% bodyfat

Ride a century each month.

Ride a mountain century (either assault on mt. mitchell or six gap, or both!)

Break 7000 miles (I did 6000 this year).

Finish the weight loss battle I started on Jan. 1, 2006.

Not the riding......I guess it's early senility! They say you lose your memory as you age....but I can't remember if it's true or not!

Cut down to 2 packs a day. Switch from Ben and Jerry's to generic brands. Do more reps of remote curls daily!

Tom, Good on ya!

I'm doing the Tour de Cure down here on March 18, 2007.

Although not a diabetic myself, I may be borderline (due to weight) and my Mom and both In-Laws are!

I'm doing it as part of a Team, "Team A & C" (Athena & Clydesdale). Since several of our teammates are not regular cyclists, we only signed up for the 40 miler.

I was going to do the Metric Century, but although not the Team Captain, I am the Team Leader. (Long Story)
