    for 2011, i did a total of 1200 miles and a longest ride of 102 miles. last year my goals for 2012 were to do 2,000 miles and 3 centuries. im at about 3700 now and got my 3 centuries in.

    next year, i'd love to do 5k miles (we'll see how work schedule allows for that). century in under 5 hours ride time (did one in 5:08 this year). planning to try to make it out to do RAIN and get a 160 mile ride in. i'll say at least 5 centuries.

    also mark me down for no injuries too...in 2011 i was on a ride, we had stopped and i didnt unclip quick enough, tipped over from a nearly standstill, broke my wrist. never broke a bone before then so i thought it was probably just sprained, rode the other 20 miles of the ride. plate and 7 screws later, i wont do that again. this year, my 3rd ride on my new bike i got in a fight with a car that didnt want to use a turn signal and side swiped me. i lost.

    2012 Goals

    - 3500 miles - almost made it, woulda coulda if not for the crash
    - ride a century - nope, but didn't care after an 84 mile day and a 71 miler in high heat and humidity. I know I can do the century easily.
    - finish a club ride with the A group. Did this many times over..

    2013 goals

    Ride as much as possible, and hopefully crash-free. Get faster, stronger..
    IMO, FWIW, CFM, YMMV, E PLURIBUS UNUM

    By learning to meter your efforts more precisely on your commute, you'll become more efficient at work, which is bound to lead to performance related pay increases thus rapidly paying for the Powertap.

    For my 2013:

    Race more.

    Use orthopedic surgeons less.

    Commute by bike a heck of a lot more.

    Maintain work, ride, life balance.

    Oh, and maintain 5-10miles running/wk as cross training. (sacrilege)

    This just in: Also adding vegetarianism for a year, see how it works out. Not a big meat eater, so the challenge won't be that great, but I will hopefully end up a little healthier.

    I'm having kid #3. As such my goals are more flexible.
    Something like
    Every weekend a race paced ride or a race provided that it fits into my schedule.
    Hit mid week training crits as much as possible.
    Race Cx in the fall
    Other random crap I stick in as I want. Heck I haven't even decided what races I will attend as that will be done on the fly due to the little one.

    Right on. 5 will help 1, which in turn will make 3 more possible. Soon 2 will happen after a few weeks of 4.

    But since I have no idea where we'll be, or what we'll be doing, in 2013 (aside from finishing our current Round-the-World tour, and returning to Australia mid-January) ... who knows if I'll even be in a place where there are Randonneuring events.
    And also ...

    At least one 1000-km month would be nice.

    Generally ride more than I did in 2012.

    Travel more ... around Australia, maybe over to New Zealand, possibly into Asia again.


    I would love to do another 24-hour race, but finding one that fits our schedules for this year would be the bigger challenge. There are no 24-hour races in Australia, at least not like the ones in the US. So this one might have to wait for another year.

    Buy as much as I can from my lbs. including tires, cassettes, tubes. I won't notice the extra 10-20%, but I will notice if they go out of business. Good guys, great mechs. They deserve the support.
