Oh, well. Maybe next year will be a different story. I only hope bicycling doesn't go away the way my enthusiasm to learn Spanish did.
In the spring, I was pretty much unemployed and couldn't get my head together to ride. Then I got some summer work that involved pretty heavy labor and couldn't fit riding into my six days a week/16 hours a day work schedule. When that ended and fall kicked in, I was achy all over and once again scrounging around for work. Now it's October and every weekend is booked with some family obligation. Screw it...I may as well start loading my bikes into the basement for winter.
When the spring of 2011 comes around and I'm fully back in the workforce (it's starting to look good for me now), I'm sure gonna need you guys to motivate me to get back on the saddle. I hope you are all settled by then, too!
