    What cycling related resolutions are folks making?

    (It's only the 30th today, so you have a whole day to change your mind before the resolution goes final...)

    Mine is to get 7500+ miles on the road bike (gonna finish this year right around 7000, so that shouldn't be too hard), and to get a Salsa Fargo and become a majority of the time bike commuter.

    You got to tell us yours too.

    Quit smoking, I'm sure that will help me ride better in the new year.

    1) Stay out of the way of cars, trucks, dogs
    2) Keep the knees intact
    3) 2000 miles (1700 in '10, almost never get to ride weekdays)
    4) Watch Patriots, Celtics and Sox bring back hardware

    I am going to ride so much this year that I have to replace the tires on my bike before years end.

    I am also going to lose 100+ lbs. the riding of the bike will be a big part of that.

    I only have one....to get on my bike more then I did the year before. The end of 2010 was tough with me being pretty ill in December (too much work if you ask me). Hoping 2011 brings everyone a lot of good miles and smiles!!!!

    The year is about 3/4 gone. How's everybody doing on their new year's goals?

    I'm on my way to my mileage goal. It'll be close. About the Fargo...I'm now debating between it and the Van Dessel WTF. Either way, I'm still hoping to have one or the other before the end of the year.

    Since writing my original resolutions, my biggest goal of the year became getting ready for and riding the Ride of the Immortals. Glad to say that one is complete.

    :rolleyes: Well I think I have bin rideing less like I said, the new bike I got on 11-3-10 has only 3,216 miles so I guess I will not have as many miles as last year'
    And the garage has not bin cleaned, It will be 9 years since I said I would clean it out I don't think it will happen in my lifetime D
