2013 Round Up

It's that time when the year is drawing to a close and worth a quick moment of reflection as to the key moments of 2013.  So, 10 things that have stood out for me this year are:-

  1. Chris Froome winning the Tour de France and showing some real guts whilst without much of his team for many key stages.
  2. Riding my fastest 100 miles at an average of 18.6mph in September.
  3. The horrendous weather at the Tour of Britain race this year and that excellent day in the The Lakes which really saw the riders suffer.  Nice job Wiggo for the win.
  4. How cycling continues to take off in the UK with so many new riders on the road.
  5. Completing London to Paris again in June (personal) with a great bunch of people from Skoda Cycling.
  6. Number of cyclists being killed on the road seems to be taking a worrying turn in the wrong direction.
  7. Riding the mountains in Tenerife in early November - going back there!
  8. The big fight for the Presidency of the UCI with the new President - Brian Cookson - taking over.
  9. Getting a new road cycling business - Beacon Bikes - off the ground and the first store opened in Whalley, near Clitheroe (personal).
  10. The blog clicking over 750,000 visits, something I never planned for.

So, they are some of mine. What about you? What have your highlights been? Feel free to leave a comment.
