- What are your ambitions or just plans for 2010 on the bike?
Generally get better and fitter
Stop sucking at berms
Finally overcome my ridiculous mental block about the Wormhole at Glentress
Break less bones than 2009
Ride more, in more interesting places
Get back to Fort William
And I'm not sure about this one, but maybe the west highland way.Posted 9 years agoRichPennyMember
SPAM Salisbury Plain Challenge
First Sportive, plus ride there and back. 400 odd km in 3 days is a big challenge for me.
Scottish road trip in August
Commute much more, try and give up the car.
Maybe a 12/24hr race
edit: Hide in OF's suitcase 🙂 How goes it mate? Riding much over christmas?Posted 9 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
To stay injury free this year
To finally get to 12 stone this year – would be the biggest and best thing I could do to improve my riding
Managed 3 Sportives this year, none of them a century, so would like to do 4 and at least one century this year.
If my new commute is as long as I think it will be, then I'll aim for 5000 miles this year
Would like to get back into MTB rides again – missing the fun of a bigger group of like minded people, making the most of Cannock and the Pines only an hour awayPosted 9 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Some good stuff here. Off the top of my head and in no specific order:
Sarn HelenPosted 9 years ago
New red trail on Aonach Mor
Overseas lift-assisted cycling holiday
The rock in Holford Green car park
The full line of Xmas Trees without bottling the steep rooty bit
My brother did the 7 day race at Alice Springs (Simpson desert?) this year. Got 27 holes in his tyres – just as well he was tubeless 🙂
Wouldn't mind doing it myself – don't know if I could handle the desert cold at night though. Apparently it dropped to 10 degrees 🙂Posted 9 years agoallyharpSubscriber
I don't really set challenges, I just ride.
But I'm moving to Surrey in June so I'll be doing a lot of riding in new areas. I'll think about joining an mtb for the first time ever.
This year I did 2 multi-day tours on bike and I hope to do at least that again this year in different locations. I really fancy a (Scotland) coast to coast, and have also wanted to get to Skye or Harris for ages so can hopefully fit those into the summer.Posted 9 years agooldgitMember
Last ditch attempt to do OK at road racing.Posted 9 years ago
I'll be fifty in two months time, and I always said I want to still be racing at 50, looks less likely now I'm actually here.
Break nothing, both me or the bikes.
Have a go at doing an Enduro fast, rather than just ride them.
Be on the start line in October for the start of the cross season.greggaMember
Was looking at C2C but decided to go for the Ridgeway instead. Getting into trail riding is the main thing as it's totally new to me. I want to do my first century road ride as well (Oxford to Cambridge this year fell a few miles short). Mixed with as many different (x)athlon event here and there as I can. Keep fit, loose some more weight and see if I can get away without breaking anything…Posted 9 years agometalheartSubscriber
I mean to make the effort to just dick about on my bike all the time. I've been watching the art of trials and need to regain old skills and learn new ones.
Definitely avoid any serious injury!
Plus planning a US trip for the late summer. Looking forward to going back to Boulder, Leadville, Crested Butte and Fruita> Might even go do Porc Rim again…Posted 9 years agoDoctorRadMember
Need to get some rehab after last year's Transverse Myelitis has left me with some residual co-ordination and proprioception problems, leading to two twisted / sprained ankles in the last eight week.
But then want to slowly get back to fitness so I can look at doing some long distance events – slowly – in 2011, and get into bikepacking.Posted 9 years ago
