Happy New Year

Here’s the bikejournal rundown for 2006. My mileage stats (5301.6 outdoor miles) had me ranked at 519 of 6543 riders. By state, I ranked 8th. Other Rambler notables are:

  1. the Good Doctor finished in 2nd with 7745.5 miles,
  2. Der Jan finished 11th with 4750 miles, and
  3. Taillights finished 16th with 3369 miles.
  4. We still have yet to work in Chum, but we’ll keep you posted.

Regarding a start to 2007, I had high hopes of riding in the Polar Bear Ride for Courage in Winston. I arose at 7, but by 8:30am it was still pouring rain — tropical storm-type rain. I reset to ride GVC’s Polar Bear Ride at 11 am, but alas. Finally, the sky began to lighten, and I headed out and by 3:30 had returned having logged 68 miles. Here are the stats:

  • Woefully slow average speed. I won’t even write it down,
  • Stopped twice to pour water out of my shoes and wring the watter out my socks,
  • Left my glasses in the Friendship Baptist Church parking lot and had to circle back to get them,
  • Rode part of the Tour de Furniture route and the Farmer’s Market Ride route, and
  • Experienced each kind of whether: rainy, cloudy, windy, and finished with sunny.

Not a monumental start but not a bad one either.
