Damp squib

Just like many New Year’s Eve celebrations all over Europe this evening my cycling year didn’t end with a bang.

This graphic shows the impact of the bang I did experience when a car hit me on Halloween. By the time all the bruises came out they stretched from the small of my back to the back of my knee. Three weeks off the bike in November and gentle recovery rides in December meant an uneventful end to the year.

I did achieve my three cycling targets for 2021 though:

  1. Ride 10,000km
  2. Complete the 1001Miglia
  3. Become a member of the ARI National Team

I have some big plans for 2022. I’ll tell you all about them next year.
