My First Interesting Photo of 2012

Wall of Jars
Wall of Jars, taken while Kim and I were at the Science Center is the photo from 2012 to break into my all time top 10% of interesting pictures on flickr. 

Thing is I didn't want to take this shot. When I caught up to Kim I showed her some of the shots I'd done and she sent me back to get one of the full wall of Jars. So Kim gets as much credit for this as I do.

- Peace

2000 KM in 2011

New Years Lights at 2000 KM
After a couple of days of procrastination, I finally decided that I was going to hit the 2000 km mark for 2011 yesterday. I was at 1941 km, so yesterday afternoon and evening I did almost 60 km of riding. After weeks of not doing more than 20 km at a time this was a serious challenge. Did about 35 km in Fishcreek with the usual suspects. Was a ton of fun, but ridding in snow is hard work. Finished of the goal by doing 25 km in the evening on the Lynskey in Evergreen. The cold, the dark and being out of shape slowed things down but I did hit the 2000 km mark at about 11:30 last night.

The goal for 2012 will be 3000 km, 1000 km more than this year.

- Peace & Happy New Year
