Resolution - No more supported bike rides without a riding buddy
I went on three supported cycling event rides in 2012. I only really had fun on one of them, and that one was a blast! My friend Elaine and I promised to stick together no matter what; and we did. We had great conversations and even got lost together; no problem!
On the other two I rode alone and that was much less fun. I don't mind riding alone, but if I am doing so I just as soon not have to worry about making it to rest stops before they close; or feel like I have to ride a set distance, no matter what and no matter the weather. I am a fair weather cyclist. If I am riding alone, with nobody to talk to, I would rather carry my own food, maybe a camera, and set my own agenda.
