I'm looking forward to this new year. I want to ride, I want to lose weight, I want to get back in shape, and I want to stay fit and healthy. A big order I know but I have a plan for achieving my goals.
First, I volunteered to lead rides for my bike club's "Series Training Rides". These will be weekend rides that the club will be offering this spring and summer to help cyclists prepare for major rides this year. The Ride Series begins in March and will continue every weekend through mid July. Now I won't have an excuse not to ride on the weekend because I will be leading the ride. I will also go to the gym after work on the weekdays with my daughter. And when the weather begins to get nicer and the days longer I will start to do my after work rides. Mix it up, a day at the gym to work on core and strength then a day of riding out doors to get a good cardio workout.
My list of rides that I plan to participate in (this list will probably grow). :)
