I don’t think I’ll make it to 3500 miles for the year. I’ve pretty much stalled at 3300. Snow, ice and laziness have got in the way. Despite that, it is still my best biking year for ages. I’ve even done a couple of mountain biking trips.
Christmas was good. My sister and my Mum and dad came up. My Dad hasn’t been up for years, so it was good to see him. I got a Washburn Rover travel guitar. Hopefully it will encourage me to play more, the idea is that I will take it away with me when I go to Bristol.
We still have a couple of inches of ice on our road. It snowed the weekend before Christmas and it still hasn’t gone away. This is pretty unusual for round here, any snow at all is fairly rare.
I went out last week and did 40 minutes or so in the snow on my mountain bike. Hard work but great fun. Not been out since, too icy.
Not sure if I’ll get any more miles in this year, maybe a few to work and back on Thursday, but other than that, I doubt it. So 3300+ will be my 2009 total. I will have to set a higher target for next year, 4000 maybe. And do some more mountain biking.
