With a new baby I'm going to find it difficult to match last year's all-time high of 3,300+ miles, so I'm being realistic - I'd like to get to 2,000, and then reassess.

I'd like to do Plymouth to Exeter across Dartmoor; this would only be about 50 miles, but it would involve probably getting the train to Plymouth first and then a LOT of serious climbing over Dartmoor.

I'd like to re-do Bristol to Exeter, which we did last summer; Cheddar Gorge, Somerset Levels, Blackdown Hills - it was amazing.

I'd like to ride a lot more trails and off-grid routes. I need to find someone with more expertise than me in where the best places are.

I'd like to upgrade the mech on my CDF from Sora to 105 at some point, which will require saving, sacrifice, and probably selling the Cube.

I'd like to be able to more thoroughly service my own bike, rather than just clean it and take it to the LBS twice a year.

I'd like to not get hit by any cars.

I'd like to get the Brooks Cambium bartape and plugs to match my saddle.

I'd like to blog a bit more about cycling experiences.

You?

I'd like to keep riding the 8-mile round trip to work at least three times a week, hopefully five

that's it

actually this rings true as well:

four months pass...

I am on-target to do 2,000 with some time spare.

Sad no one else posted in here.

My target was/is to do 2015 miles, and I'm ahead of target on that for now.

I'm not going to match last year's PB total, but I'd like to break the 4,000 mile barrier again this year.

I would like to finally get some points by finishing in the top ten of a crit / road race, but realistically this is just never going to happen (unless, by some freakish chain of events, only 15 people enter one of my races, instead of the usual 50-90).

I want to do some kind of crazy long ride (but not *that* long - I've only ridden over 100 miles twice) out to somewhere I've never ridden and then get a train back. Maybe Norwich?

We're going to do out Bristol to Exeter ride on Saturday 27 June. Excited. Weather had better be good.
