…ate and loose ends to nail down to be able to hit the goals I have set for myself in 2013-2014 with work and on the bike. This means early mornings on the bike, or early mornings at the computer so I can break away for a couple hours around lunch if it is too chilly in the mornings. There is also the Rapha Festive 500 through Strava that I’m committing myself to. Why? Well, why not? Who’s excited for 2013 and your riding plans?…
