2009 Biking Goals and one for 2010

My goal for 2009 is to do 4500 KM. I did 4200 KM way back in 2008.

In May of 2010 I'm aiming to ride the Golden Triangle: "a 310-km loop crosses the Great Divide twice". One of the local bike clubs does it the May long weekend every year. As I've only done one 100 KM day I have some work to do. So I'm adding two more goals for 2009:
  • Ride the entire Highwood Pass from one end to the other and back. 108 KM and about 1.5 KM of climbing in one day.
  • Ride Calgary to Edmonton, City Hall to City Hall. Just under 300 KM in two days. Relatively flat.
    If I can do those two things in 2009 I think I can attempt the Golden Triangle in 2010.

    - Peace

    Calgary to Edmonton sounds intense. So does the Golden Triangle, but I've driven from Calgary to Edmonton so I can at least picture that. Good luck in 2009!

    My boss (James, he was at my party for a little while) does the Golden Triangle
