So, that’s it for 2013. The Brompton is folded below deck on the boat and the family are in Lichfield for the festive period.
Around a year ago, when Chris and I first started dragging our middle-aged selves into the saddle to prepare for April’s mountain madness, I set myself three targets.
- Pedal over 3,000 miles in the year
- Climb over 100,000′ while doing so
- Don’t drink so much as not being such a fat b*stard will make one and two considerably easier
Well, in the rides that were recorded, I spent 11 and a half days on the Brompton, scraped the first target and got very close with the second. Three, however, went by the wayside completely. At least, this makes the New Year’s resolutions easy and I have something to aim for in the coming months.
And on that note, I’d like to wish Chris and our 2.4 readers a merry festive season and all the very best for 2014!
