Had several centuries this year but I have to say the highlight was participating in the http://airforcecyclingclassic.com/ this year in DC! I CAN NOT wait for it again this year. No crit racing for this old man

My 2012 riding year went extremely well with a few exceptions. It was my first full year of retirement, so finding a time to ride was no longer an issue. It was also a year where I sustained more injuries, since I got back into cycling, keeping me off the bike for three months. 2012 saw more charity rides than the previous year with several 100K rides and a century ride. At 5,220 miles, I rode over 2,000 miles more than I did in 2011 and wonder how many miles I would have ridden if I didn't have all those injuries. The only thing I want to accomplish for 2013 is to not have as many injuries and/or time off the bike so I can put on more miles than last year. I also want to start using the Transit for what we bought it for and start our Florida cycling tour and then our U.S. cycling tour. So for 2013, it's feed my addiction and keep those pedals turning.
I had a nice year Ben came down and we did a Tour de Swamp 35 miles and the 666 Tour 40 miles. We had some good rides and a year total of 3,195 miles, I have slowed as the year ended, so I am hopeing that 2013 brings some good ride.
