Through a fluke of the calendar, very regular commuting, odd days off and weather this last month of the year went pretty well indeed. It also helped that things started with an excellent Fixed-Gear Loop, which notched a goodly chunk o’ miles to start things off. Felt good enough about things by the end of December to mail in my registration for the SFR 200K, for which the Quickbeam is actually seeming like the first choice. Of course, I still haven’t done an inordinate amount of climbing on that bike, and that’ll be the final test before I make the decision.
Snuck in 22 days of riding and nabbed 522 miles this month (high water mark for 2009!), mostly on the Quickbeam, but with a nice mix of Hilsen and Dawes miles as well. With a no-class-on-holidays schedule combined with our teacher having a couple of subs (which we opted out of), only got to yoga 5 times. Definitely feel a little tighter, especially with the increase of mileage.
Total mileage for 2009 - 4132. Happy with that.
Everybody be safe tonight. See ya next year.
