Happy New Years, 50+'ers
May each and every one of you enjoy a healthy and happy 2014! I guess now it is time to get the New Years resolutions in order. Mine is to ride further than I did in 2013, my 1st full year back on a bicycle after 45 years. I need to go over 2000 miles this year, any additional will be icing on the cake. (Or pie)
Happy New Years to all, May 2014 be good to you and yours.
Happy New Years all.
Today I went for a ceremonial New Years Day bicycle ride. I must be acclimated to winter already as the 40 degrees seemed very pleasant. I left the road bike at home and rode my old steel mountain bike up the big hill covered in road salt. It was only a few miles.... but a very nice ride. We are all very lucky... to be a part of cycling.
Peace and health and joy and wealth to you all.
I have no resolutions but I am getting caught up on cancer screenings and the like... just because.
Customary crack-of-dawn New Year's Day ride for me, as well -- 25mi/40km out-and-back to the top of Torrey Pines hill. I understandably get no climatic sympathy from anyone, but I did need my leg warmers and winter cycling gloves today. :)
Great choice of music!
Great climb! I sure wish I had that in my backyard. How long a climb is it......about 6-8% maybe?
On the descent with the car moving into your lane.......was that as close as it looked going by it?
It's a wonderful place. 11 miles at 6-7% mostly. I don't remember that car being so close so it may be an optical trick, but I know how to ride the Mountain safely despite the bad drivers.
