Do you have any riding goals through 2021?
I really, really, enjoyed riding in 2020. The combination of good weather and two or three friends who were always up for a ride has been so inspiring. I rarely rode with more than one or two riders all year, but one day Bruce would ask if I was free for a ride, the next day Darren would text, then next day it would be too sunny NOT to ride, so I ended up riding loads – and all sorts too. Mountain, road, gravel, it really didn’t matter.
I’d like to do even better this year. More rides, of any kind can only be good, right? And maybe by the autumn I can tentatively look forward to travelling again. I usually do a lot of travel for my job and it’s obviously not been possible recently. And while it’s possible to meet over video-chat, it’s rubbish for going out and doing an adventure worth writing about in Singletrack Magazine
