Git 'Er Done!

8,000 bicycle miles in 2006

In 24F degree temps this morning, through ice and snow and slush and wind, Howard rode his Ice Bike north three miles, turned tail, and returned three miles home.

8,000 miles for the year! Feels good.

Moving on now...

Next year's goals?
  • 8,000 miles (Howard's no fool -- it was tough enough this year!)
  • Mickelson Trail in South Dakota with Glenn the Machine in April or May
  • Find riding opportunity in Austin, TX in May or June
  • Lose those final 13 pounds by summer
  • Ride the Rockies in June
  • Attend a special wedding sometime this summer
  • Tour de Wyoming in July
  • RAGBRAI in July with Lance
  • Self-supported Tour from Vancouver, BC to Eugene in August
  • Fat Tire Triathlon in August
  • Horsetooth Double-Dip in August
  • Buffalo Bicycle Classic Century in September
  • El Tour de Tucson in November
  • Begin work on two new custom house projects
Gotta have them goals. Without goals, nothing ever gets done. (Actually the saying is "without deadlines, nothing ever gets done," but so close to the New Year, this works better.)

Congratulations Howard!


P.S. On this important day of setting goals you've inspired me to think of some of my own.

Eight thousand miles. Congrats! Either you have lots of time or you ride very fast .... or you just plan your day better than I do.
