Cycling-related 2013 Resolutions
 
Let's hear 'em.

Last year (Dec 31, 2011) I quit smoking and it stuck.

For 2013: I resolve to ride 175 miles a week and a century a month.

Next?

Congrats on kicking the old habit

I am still new and only have a few months riding but 2013 I plan to go for 5,000 miles, complete my first cenntury (then add a few)

I will try to not start any idiotic threads.

To stick to my training and try not to miss any days, race as much as possible, and have fun of course! :)

+1. I always made poor excuses in 2012 to skip out on some ride, so I'm hoping to up the mileage this year. I like the century a month idea too! Also going to post in the forums more. Might as well quit lurking. :thumb:

Try to get my trek 520 to 10,000 miles by December 31,2013 and do a few more centurys.

That's awesome!!!!

My goal is pretty much the same--7k miles and to have fun doing it. No crashes...

Ride 150 to 200 miles a week and spend less money on bike. But I really want a Go Pro hero so If I can get away with just buying that I would be pleased. Lots of base miles and get my average speed up to 20mph would be nice but I will stick to the milage and see what happens

To dominate all local MUPs.

I plan to work extra hard to come up with a rationalization to purchase a powertap. I've been working on t for teh past several years, but keep coming up short.

Machka 12-23-12 08:12 PM

I'd really like to get back into Randonneuring again, and see if I can break the 400K barrier again. 2007 was the last time I was able to do that distance (life, medical issues, etc. have got in the way).

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.

I just bought my first road bike (it was a combined present for Christmas/my birthday + I still have to pay), so I guess the first resolution is to ride it a lot and get better with it.

My main resolution for next year: Reduce my car driving by 50%. From a current stand point, I think it'll be very do-able. I only drive 2 places every week when at college: the grocery store, and DQ for a hangout. If I can move to riding to these two weekly, I'll be doing phenomenal.

Good luck with that one.

Not to get injured.

Great ideas. So far, this has to be the most difficult. Even harder than quitting smoking is spending less on cycling while upping miles. Good luck to you.

didn't work for me. Every year I end up upgrading my components. From stock (Sora) to Ultegra (2010) to Force (2011) and this year Red. Maybe next year I'll switch to campy Athena and work my way up to Super Record

Ride more (duh).

Don't let work interupt my riding agenda as much as it did this year.

surgeonstone 12-24-12 10:35 AM

To ride, even if i only have a half an hour free, i always feel better.

primov8 12-24-12 11:25 AM

2013 Cycling goals:

- 7500+ miles
- 2 or more centuries a month
- to stop looking at other framesets to build up

MikeyBoyAz 12-24-12 11:29 AM

Drop down to 190- and complete a 5:00:00- century.

Elduderino2412 12-24-12 11:39 AM

In no particular order

Not let work interfere with my riding
Spend less on road bike(but will probably buy a new expensive MTB next year)
Have an affair w/ Jessica Biel

marqueemoon 12-24-12 12:13 PM

Be in better shape when next cross season starts instead of waiting until I have already done 3 or 4 races before getting my act together like I did in 2012.

Do more mountain biking.
Find a regular fast-ish group ride to do. I need to find some new routes and a group that will push me a little.
Get rid of bikes I don't ride.
Build up a nice 4 season road bike.
