My first SR this year - and hopefully 30 points (and maybe even 50 - but see how the 30 goes first).

Try not to drive my wife mad by getting all OCD about LEL.

Get the current double RRTY completed in May 2009. then continue at least a single RRTY ( another double ... well maybe).
Another SR ( 3rd )
LEL
More than 8000 miles (maybe beat this years total - which will be about 8500)
More than 60 points.

but most of all  ENJOY riding particularly with good company, good rides and  reasonable weather

Same as (unachieved) for the last two years:

My first 200km.

However, I now have a plan. I'll get the route for the Solent 200 perm and do that.


The Detailed Plan

- by Jan 2009 : give up smoking (sob, sob)
- Jan 2009 : any 100; possibly Watership Down
- anytime : the Solent 200 perm

Edit [12th Dec 2008] : the detail.

Ride the Anfractuous on a 70" gear and without use of the 24" gear except at officially sanctioned controls.

Everything else is gravy.

Bealach na Ba.

In order to do that I will need to get a bit of fitness and lose a bit of weight.

Quite a few....

Organising:
1. Not to lose/kill anyone on the Pengwern SR rides.
2. Fiendish plotting for 2010. "One ride to rule them all..."

Riding
1. More rides on the tandem. Look out for the 'Purple Beast'.
2. Interesting new events. Earmarked so far are the Cambrian 200 at Easter and the Ballachulish w/e. Not too bothered about a points total.
3. Make it all the way round the Offa's Dyke.
4. A long PRoF. Roscoff-Nice in early September is current favorite.
5. Avoid LEL. To that end I'll be off to Nordkapp in July.
