The best and worst of 2012. What happened to you?
Worst. Mother in laws cancer coming back with a vengeance. Uncle died on 22/12, not very close but he worked on Russian convoys in the war so got to respect him for that and the living hell he endured. Work very patchy so no big plans can be made.Posted 5 years ago
Best. Good times with Mrs Marin and friends. Becoming mates with my brother, only took us 40 years. Staying sober on New Years Eve and riding/pushing up Snowdon on New Years Morning to ride down in time for breakfast. Start as you mean to go on yeeehaaa!deadlydarcyMember
Quite upsetting reading some of the “worsts” on this thread. It is heartening to see how people can bounce back, no matter what life throws at them though. All the best to those that feel 2013 is a year to turn around from the shite that’s been thrown at them in 2012.Posted 5 years agodashedMember
Worst: split from the girl of my dreams after going through a tough spell and suffering badly from depression. I basically f’ed up a great relationship.
Best: got out of a crap job, got all my stuff out of storage and finally started living my life properly again.
Seem like lots of single, singletrackworlders at the minute of both sexes – surely there’s agap in the market there?!?Posted 5 years agoshowermanMember

best coming back from it and 2 clear scans since 3rd fingers crossed in feb
best of all getting back on the bike for the first ride in morzine should see the photos very little hair looking grey and seemed to drink a lot of coffee and eat cake mmmmm could hardly pedal to the lift stations but was still quick on the downs
whether we like it or not the clock is ticking and we have to make the best of it… and buy more lotto tickets cos i do not like working anymoreloweySubscriber
Moving post mate.
Last year was the year from hell. Lost borther, mum and wife (she left, didnt die) in the space of months… so this year was ok.
Best.. March 11th. Ride Snowdon in conditions you only dream about with great mates… then meeting a blind date on the way home who turned out to be the girl of my dreams.
Worst… Being a single dad with a long distance girlfriend and a job that means I’m out of the office nealry everyday has put paid to cycling. I’m 2 st heavier than I was this time last year.
Pales into insignificance to the posts above.. keep strong people.Posted 5 years agotrailmonkeyMember
best – son leaving school and finding a paid apprenticeship as an electrician / me graduating with a first in history.
worst – nothing that qualifies in comparison with some of the hurt in this thread. truly humbling and i only hope that i can be as brave when fate comes knocking at my door.Posted 5 years ago
