I hope your holidays have been wonderful.
I took time off from riding up until Christmas and then as weather permitted got two rides in before New Year's eve.
Cycling wise my 2009 goals include:
-continue riding outdoors through winter....as much as possible but I'm not going to be insane about it,
-get over my fear of riding rollers, currently still holding onto a rail with one hand,
-ride the trainer, or the rollers, on those miserable winter days,
-be ready to ride a century on the Flatlands Tour, May 2nd; the operative word is FLAT
-join RUSA (http://www.rusa.org/) and try some randonneuring events and see what that's all about ("randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring."),
-build up the Jamie Swan frame once it's back from painting by Tom Kellogg,
-collect the final Campagnolo Record 10 components so I can finish the Cipollini Cannondale,
