First Quarter Stats
With the first quarter of 2013 down, I’m off to my typical slow start.
6 rides in total, 139 miles with approximately 12,700′ of climbing.
Having psoriatic arthritis and a degrading disc issue with my back, I’m not one for riding in the cold/damp weather. Usually I start to ramp up my seat time in April. So I am now looking forward to better, warmer weather and hitting the road at least 3 times a week.
|March 2013||103.0 mi||07:51:5||+9,295 ft|
|January 2013||36.4 mi||02:40:11||+3,537 ft|
My goals for this year include; a minimum of 3100 miles (2950 in ’12), with at least 225,000′ of ascent (218,600 in ’12) and compete in 2 or 3 events. Conquer a few of the bigger climbs such as Fiddlers Elbow, Iron Bridge and Breakneck roads. I have ridden most all of the big climbs in Morris,
Somerset and Hunterdon Counties, but have yet to ascend any of the major climbs in Sussex…
