Your final ride of 2011
Just about to head out for my final ride of 2011 – nothing epic, just an easy spin of my favourite local loop (not feeling that well, but I’m b*ggered if I’m not going!)
A chance to reflect on and celebrate that I have been lucky enough to have a great year of cycling 🙂
Anyone else fitting in a last ride before the close of the year?Posted 6 years agochubby_monkMember
Yup – been out already this morning. Just a quick loop from my house, round Ashton court in Bristol, and back.
Started at 7:20 in the dark and finished when it was light. Night / dawn rides are ace. I saw more deer than people until the very end. One even ran parallel to the trail for about 20 yds.
The wind and rain was less enjoyable, but the mist made it cool for a whilePosted 6 years agorobsoctaneMember
My wife is off to bingo this afternoon so I’m with my son (8 years old)… We will be going to the BMX park near us so he can show me up then when the wife gets back it’s night riding at 4pm. Local loop, well, it’s 7 miles before I get to the loop but it’s like my own private trails centre, always empty and absolutely great lines… pretty sure that it was all made by motorcross bikes some times ago, now it’s not that rutted but it still has great roughness to it and the hills up and down are the best I’ve been on. I’ll be blasting the Trek Fuel around.
I can’t wait. Everyone else, enjoy what you’re doing on the last day – Happy new year!!!!!!!!!Posted 6 years agodevsMember
I have got 16km to do today to meet my 4000kms for the year target. I shall do it as I have done many of them in the local forest on awesome trails with axl the awesomely fit lurcher alongside. He’s in a huff recently because I’ve been doing longer Puffer training rides without him.Posted 6 years agodirtygirlonabikeMember
Planning a 100 miles tomorrow so heading to the gym today instead of riding, and then heading to the sofa for the rest of the day. My last ride of 2011 was a mtb ride on Thursday. Strange to end the year with a mtb ride, given I’ve only mtb’ed a handful of times this year…and almost all of those rides have been wet/muddy/snowy!Posted 6 years agoBustaspokeSubscriber

First ride of the new year tomorrow.
Happy New Year all 😀
That was an ace final ride of the year … my favourite coastal road route, stunning scenery out to sea, virtually no traffic, and best of all blue skies, sunshine and riding in just a t-shirt!
I’d just like to say that again – biking … in a t-shirt … on the 31st of December – Fan-bleedin-tastic 🙂
I feel so lucky to be me!Posted 6 years ago
