Over the instagram everyone is probably going to define him/herself stoked and/or superexcited and grateful for the extraordinary cycling experiences that 2021 brought them (insert ADV here).
Let’s get away from this for a while.
How was your cycling year? Did you get something good from it? Did you manage fulfilling some of your desires or dreams?
I had a target in riding my bike more, in 2021: I did, thankfully. More days on the bike (grocery rides counted), way more distance covered (+30%).
Notwithstanding a busy parental career (father of three), I threw in also a couple* of century rides which were missing since two years.
Unfortunately, a bike trip is still nowhere to be seen. I miss it so much, hopefully it will happen next year.
Uh, and a new custom endurance steel bike entered in my shed. It’s now my favorite bike.
New roots around town were explored and enjoyed. Fun was had. Very often, curiosity prevailed over distance or elevation goals, which was good indeed.
*many metric, one was a proper imperial one BUT I’m going to ride another one after Christmas
So what about you?
