I’m baaaaaack!

Well, it’s certainly been a while since my last post. In that time I’ve moved from SXCE to OSOL, had a trip to the SFBay area and Beijing, had an actual holiday (first one in 3 years), had 2 MTB off-road coaching sessions with Spoonboy, been loaned a road bike (thankyou Chipdancer) and experienced the joys of C turning 1 and having her very first birthday party.Quite an eventful few months all told.To start this new year I’ve got some goals which I hope to be able to keep to:

  • Ride at least 70km every week, over 3 days

  • Ride in the Bicycle Queensland Coottha Challenge (and not suck going up the hill!)

  • Ride in the Bicycle Queensland Brisbane to Gold Coast 100km mass ride (and do so faster than last year’s 4h49m riding time)

  • Get off-road more, on the MTB

Should be easy enough, don’t you think?

I’m also trying to get out of the headspace which made me think I was always at work — there are a bunch of novels I’ve got stacked up waiting to read. There’s always stuff to do around the house, and this “dad” caper is pretty absorbing too.We’ll see how I go.
