- What are your ambitions or just plans for 2010 on the bike?
1. Complete 3 Enduros, each of 4hr-6hrs duration
2. Usual Alps week's Downhilling (Morzine/Les Gets)
1. Complete 4 Sportive's (1 Spring, 2 Summer, 1 Autumn)
The above goals will be sufficient to ensure that I am riding at least each weekend plus the usual midweek night ride.Posted 9 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Thinking about signing up for kielder not sure if I can get in enough training (don't wanna take up a place unless there's a resonable chance of me finishing)
Ride more…dunno will have a think about aims over christmas.Posted 9 years ago
Def a good idea to list some tho, this years aims have pushed me out the door on several occassions when I wouldn't have bothered.paul78Member
I'm setting up to do the hottest, coldest and highest races in the world… Arrowhead 135 in feb, then Yak Attack in March and then Simpson Desert Challenge Sept…
Definately gonna be back to do Kielder 100 if its doesn't clash and try and break the top 10..
…then in 2011 i will be mostly curled up in a ball recovering from 2010..Posted 9 years ago13thfloormonkMember
I've got a 20 day off road tour through the north-west highlands planned and booked, about 15 50km days with days off to climb hills etc. Still think I should be doing more distance each day but it would mean missing out on places I want to stop and see.
Also want to make another attempt at the West Highland Way in a day, got mates interested this year and know that I should be leaving earlier than 5am (who'd have thought it!).Posted 9 years agoctznsmithMember
Buy/build a moutain bike and ride it/improve my skills on one.
RAB – which I'm in two minds about pros: a nice 'easy' supported entry to multiple day distance cycling/touring. cons: expensive and possibly sharing said journey with people I don't get on with.
Maybe a late summer sportive as well.
Got to get the hassle/expense of moving out of the way in the new year first though. 🙁Posted 9 years agoyossarianMember
plans are to actually ride a bit more! 2 kids under the age of three have seriously curtailed my riding this year and left me just doing an 80odd mile commute each week.
Things are calming down at home now and my wide has started running and aikedo again so I should have a bit more time for riding too.
Am getting a singular swift in the next few days (HURRY UP SAM!) and probably a cool bianchi road bike on the cycle to work scheme in the spring so new shiny things to ride should (hopefully) make 2010 a good year for riding!Posted 9 years agotinsyMember
Tiny Tins is due in March, I will be restricted, am going to Morzine in July, and wouldnt mind another crack at D2D solo, and would like to better my local race series placing, but would think chances of riding a lot are slim so the racing will be impared, but looking forward to my little lad making an appearance more than anything…. 🙂
Spookily will be calling the new arrival Jimmy as long as the scans were right or it might be Jimelina!Posted 9 years agoTreksterSubscriber

i did lands end to john o groats 3 years ago in june following a recovery in hospital and initial diagnosis. raised 20k for leukemia research at the time, took 8 days and was an amazing experience. since then had a bit of a struggle through some nasty chemo this year combined with the missus of 21 years calling it a day and taking my kids so all in all 2009 has been about as bad as it can get.Posted 9 years ago
point is therefore 2010, i have to make good, great if possible.
after end to end difficult to find anything but am in and running london although will be tight as just now about able to start gentle training.
would REALLY like to take my road bike from milan to munich tho, over the alps. i may be organising something for june along those lines, anyone else up fo it? i will be doing it for macmillan and my company may help by providing van, minibus, fuel and possibly driver etc be looking at 6-7 days i estimate, 680km only i think but obviously a bit lumpy!!Manchester TrevMember
