I've found it extremely helpful to have some type of goal to help with motivating me with cycling. While I truly enjoy riding having a goal or target seems to provide a little more focus and effort in getting out in less than the nicest conditions or doing a few more intervals and miles than I might have felt like doing. In the past I've set goals that might include riding so many miles in year, targeting a PR for a time trial or training for a pretty challenging Century. For some rides I've set goals for just riding out to a town or a place I had not ridden to before just to add some additional miles.
What are some goals or targets that work for you?
What are you planning for 2005?
