Thanks, Anto, and the best to you and your bikes for the coming year. 

(Hard for me to think of cycling right now, as life has moved indoors: temp was -28 last night, wind chill of -36  :(  But this too will pass, I keep telling myself -- there's a bike box in my basement with my name on it, and our son's address in Queensland.)

Cheers,  John

Slightly belated Happiest of New Year greetings to all. I've been out on my bike, about to go again. I had to return home to take care of some things, so two shorter rides are better when a single longer one is not possible.

Freezing fog outside today and the face surfaces of all my clothing is soaked and frozen.

All the best to one and all,

Dan.

Happy New Year to all. Pouring down here, though that hasn't put off the fireworks. The cats are all under the sofas, the explosions sounded so close.

This year my Nomad will have it's seventh birthday. How long is that in dog years?  Is there any sort of appropriate ceremony. Maybe a BeerMitzva or a 14 click salute?

Happy New Year to you all. Did 32 miles yesterday which gave me a total of 10.001 miles for 2017.
If you want to be happy learn to be alone without being lonely.
If you want to enjoy the world see it from the saddle of a bike.
If you want to experience beauty camp alone in a spectacular place.
If you want release your anxieties cease excuses and take actions.

Pauline did over 6000 miles but remember she also did 3 long distance walks during the year.
