I decided to look at my cycle computers and mileage for the year adds up to 3583.33 miles but there are a few uncounted miles on my mountain bike so it will be above 3600 miles. Not as may as last year but the very inclement weather of the past few months has limited my riding.
I turned 65 this month so I am just happy to have achieved as much and am aiming for 4000miles in 2016.
Looking back we got in a few cycle camping trips in Yorkshire – presently in the midst of various floods, a long trip to Holland and Germany and I was so pleased to be able to make a 3 day solo bike and OAP bus pass trip. It was great to use the Dahon Speed Tr for that one.
We also enjoyed the Cycle touring Festival at Clitheroe in May and I hope there will be another in 2016 to attend.
We were also able to go out on a number of occasions and help with cleaning up cycle tracks both here in the Boro and with Sustrans volunteers in Stockton and Thornaby.
I also got a quite a few quilts made and learned some new sewing techniques especially on Craftsy.com which I can well recommend.
Here’s to a very happy new year. May God bless us all.
