Geez, it's been 3 months since I last posted anything. If any of my blog friends remain, cheers!
I have to admit, since I got my iPhone, it is much easier to post stuff to Facebook and Twitter. Those systems match my very short attention span. Blogger, in comparison, is an investment in time. Something I don't seem to have too much of lately.
But I can't believe how easy it is to load pictures now! And in the same order I clicked them!
I finished 2012 with more miles than any other year. It was a fantastic riding year. I'm sorry I didn't share more with you folks. Many miles were in pacelines, and I was afraid to take too many photos because I didn't want to cause wrecks.
|Hi Luis! A summer ride with the gang.|
I've been riding Courteous Mass rides as much as I can also. Here are a couple photos from the November ride.
|The new Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge. Awesome at night!|
Alex and I were able to do some rides on rail-trails. We did rides in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Minnesota this year.

I think I have finally come to terms with my randonneuring exploits. After my failure to complete the 600k ride again this year, I've decided to concentrate on shorter brevets, although someday I'd really like to complete a 600 and even and 1200k someday (like PBP in 2015).
I did brevets in Ohio, Illinois, and Tennessee this year. Best of all, I met some really cool people on each ride.

|I did several brevets on the Trek 710 I purchased last year from Jon.|
I got to meet the Dallas-Fort Worth blogger clan in February. Unfortunately, the few photos I took at that event are somewhere in the cyber grave yard - our old computer finally gave up the fight.
I did the Hilly Hundred this year in Bloomington. I did it one other time, back in 1985.

Outside riding continues this winter as I have mounted my studded tires on the Tricross. I had to de-fender the front wheel to make room for the studded tires. Here are some photos from the Chilly Challenge, Fort Wayne's New Year's Day ride.
