Well it is that time of year and it is traditional to do a review of the year gone by. 2013 has sped by and it really seems like the other day when I was doing a review of 2012. Twelve months is a long time though and there have been many highlights during the year. Here’s a month by month summary…
Lots of snow and much outdoor activities were had including a mega bunkhouse stay in the Brecon Beacons, lots of walks and the restart of my cycling interest.
More cycling and a continued cold snap
Late snow and yet more cycling
Some food tips, Barney’s adventures and a musing about hobbies
More Barney adventures, weight loss progress and looking forward to the summer
Preparation for our French trip plus another bunkhouse trip to the coast
France and Cornwall holidays. Halcyon days
A camping trip to North Devon and a wildcamp with Barney and Ella
A nasty insect sting, a trip to the Elan Valley and The Tour of Britain
Progress on the diet and cholesterol front and darker, wintery days for cycling
Training for a big bike ride and Barney poses for the camera
A very big bike ride, a very big milestone on the diet and a very big mileage total for the year!
I great year in review! Barney is too cute! Happy New Year!
No backpacking. Better rename your blog “and Saddlebags” 😉
Happy New Year 🙂
I did!!! I did!!! 😦
Looks like 2013 was a wonderful year for you. Happy 2014 🙂
A great 2013! here’s to a good 2014, Happy New Year.
Thanks Phil and to you and yours 🙂
Happy New Year. Well done on your cycling achievements. I managed to fall well short of my aim to do 10,000 miles in a year. The main problem was time. I usually get 2-3hrs at a time for cycling, when I am not doing other things. However, I did manage to clock up around 6500 miles. My aim next year is to do at least 100 miles per week, which should be achievable based on this years total. I would also like to improve my times.
The cycling highlight of my year was doing the Way of the Roses with my son. Although he is only 15 he has now greatly surpassed my fitness. Training 5 days a week on an Ergo is obviously good for cycling!
