As it turned out, that ride on November 30th was indeed the last ride of the year. While there were a few reasonable days for riding, most temperatures throughout December were well below 0°C. Coupled with the unseasonably cold weather was two weeks of out-of-state travel, which pretty much put a kibosh on physical activity. So much for having good ‘form’ going into the holiday season!
Despite the lack of riding in this December, my annual mileage was well above the record set in 2012 (3579 miles; an increase of 18%). Most riding was allocated to commuting and randonneuring (including training for the Munger Bungo)... …definitely something I’m happy with.
So, a good year! Achieved a major milestone (600 km brevet), avoided major crashes/mishaps, and set another record for cumulative mileage. Here’s to keeping the momentum in 2014!
