2014 and all that.

Well, really good to get one of the crappiest years ever over and done with. Out with the old and in with the new! Miss you Steve and Lee

Several intentions this year. At least 3000 miles on the bike (only 9 miles a day!) - get the wheelbuilding going again and being considerably more tidy. There are numerous small intentions too!

4 or 5 events lined up starting in February, Silverdale with Bowland and Morecambe, Anglezarke Amble - (done at least 5 times before) , The peelers from Bury Twice before, possibly Derwent Water, the 2 Crosses - (6 times before). Seems that my son and Girlfriend have hatched a plot to do a serious bike ride at Easter - 400 miles or so (and drag me along) and then the "Fred Whitton" if I get an entry 50-50 at best.

However since the arrival of the truly wonderful Garmin Edge 500, using the Turbo takes on a brand new dimension.

I also got another bike (Giant Talon) from the Cycle to Work scheme, which is being heavily modified for big hills - looks like being a big year.

Got to go. I have a shed to tidy!
