    Post your Riding Goals for 2010!

    Well, now that I've opened this Pandora's box, I guess I'm up. Subject to further consideration, here are my 2010 Goals.

    1. Do more Charity Rides. 6 this year, I think We have the Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hosp ride in Feb, MS150, Frank Starke Ride, etc
    2. Do a Birthday Ride, for real this year (Jan 10th) Missed it last year cause I didn't start riding until Feb.
    3. Do a century at 20+ mph
    4. Do a 35mph sprint
    5. Try CycloCross - man, that looks like fun.
    6. Ride ~ 100 mi+ each week. (5,000+ this yr)

    If I can think of any more ways to torture this tired old body, I'll post them later!

    Pretty much the same as my accomplishments for 2009, just to keep on riding as much as I possibly can (where have I heard that before? Hm)
    I'd like to do more miles in 2010 than 2009 and I've more each year than the year before but, mainly, any miles are good miles.

    The usual: Super Rando series, and a 1200k (this year, the Cascade 1200). And something a little different: I'm dedicating my Cascade 1200 ride to raising funds for Colegio La Esperanza, a project of a local non-profit: http://riseupinternational.com/wordpress/?page_id=7

    Considering there are 23 cycling days left in the year, I'll keep working on 2009 a while, thanks. I don't finalize my goals until the last week of the year.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    For the wife and I to start "road touring" with "overnighters or weekender" type road rides. We really want to get out on the road but with Jo being in the "change of life" (killer hot flashes), she's not strong enough for "group riding" so were going to very slowly work our way towards, "multi-day" tours, hopefully towards the end of Summer 2010!
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    Continue to commute to work and also ride whenever I feel like it.

    Might road tour from San Jose to San Diego so I will have an excuse for N+1 getting a tour bike that can be left on the mainland for trips there.

    Hey, CB, with the airline gouging going on for bags and stuff, it makes total sense to leave a bike on the mainland; quite a few years ago I finally gave up and left a classic steel ride (w/ Campy NR & Stronglight) at my in-laws in HNL and I haven't regretted it a lick since. I'll be back to ride it again in exactly 2 weeks.

    My only goal for next year is to put in more miles than this pathetic year that's coming to a close.

    Here in California, there is a level of double century riding called "The Hall of Fame" and to get in, you have to have ridden 50 or more double centuries in California. So my goal for this year is to get in while I'm still 60.

    Actually, I don't turn 60 until March, so I have all 2010 . . . except, the awards are given out the Sunday morning following the Knoxville Double, so I my real goal is to have 50 by then, or have the 2010 Knoxville Double be my 50th.

    Okay, so as of right now, I have 42, and the doubles on my schedule for 2010 are:

    Camino Real, Spring Solvang, Hemet, Devil Mountain, Davis, ,Eastern Sierra, Grand Tour and of course, Knoxville. Of those doubles, I've done all except Devil Mountain (which is brutally difficult with 18, 600 feet of climbing).

    So, contingency plan here: If I DNF on Devil Mountain, I will try Central Coast (which I've never ridden before) with "only" 14,000 feet of climbing, instead. If I should happen to DNF on Central Coast too, I will plug in Mt. Tam, which I have done before, but which is also fairly brutal (we had over 17,000 feet of climbing on Mt. Tam last year).

    I plan to do a lot of climbing rides to strengthen my vertical abilities, plus I have minor goals like the Palm Springs Century on a fixed gear and a week long tour with the Oregon Bike Ride folks.

    Yeah, I know, you all think I'm crazy (except Dante who does these rides too) but as loyal readers know, I will fill you in as the season progresses in my long reports with far too much detail.

    Rick / OCRR

    PS: If you haven't ridden a double, set yourself a goal: Ride a Double Century! Then, when you've finished, you'll have great stories that none of your non-cycling friends will comprehend, . . . but at least you'll know I'm not crazy. Or . . . alternately, you'll be crazy too!

    Ride more than 2009 (stayinf injury free would help with this a lot)

    Keep commuting to work (over 70% for this year and hope to up that to at least 80% next year)

    Convince wife to ride her age on her 50th B-day (this will be the toughest but I have a 50+ jersey stashed away for her as an incentive - may end up doing in k instead of m but that would be OK)

    At least one overnight trip

    Rick/OCRR Double! 8^0 I bow to your awesomeness! I just did my first century last Sunday and was very happy with myself. Now I have a new challenge an a peak I don't know if I can reach. Awesome. Amazing. I'm dumbfounded.

    10 Centuries on the tandem with my wife. Get our flat, no wind cruising speed up over 20 mph (yeah, I know that slow for a tandem, but we're old). Get strong enough to comfortably climb, albeit slowly, what our club calls grade 4 climbs. Continue to enjoy cycling!

    To get through the year in one piece. I've had 2 season ending injuries in the last 4 years. OUCH. I don't attribute the accidents to age, but suddenly I seem accident prone and I've been more careful than ever.

    Ride both days of the MS 150 (this year, day one was rained out). Ride the Hotter 'n Hell Hundred. Really learn how to maintain and repair my bikes. Ride a greater variety of routes. Ride the whole year without falling -- not even once.

    Not thought about all my goals for 2010, but there is one in mind. Several years ago, I rode the Katy Trail in Missouri. Last year I did Ragbrai for the first time. Since I've ridden across Iowa, and most of Missouri, I think it's time to bike my home state (Arkansas). Thinking I'd like to take at least a week, pack my tent, and do a tour, solo if necessary. See some of the beauty of my home state.
