5 December. November and December are always difficult months for cycling – at least for me. Because I always seem to have lots of other commitments at this time of year. And the shorter days don't help. But cycling when it's dark (as it was when I finished today's ride) and when the temperature drops close to freezing is actually very exhilarating. Maybe I ought to push myself a bit more.
26 November. Sunny days are in rather short supply now, and what with a lot of other commitments the chances of getting out are becoming fewer. Just as well that I completed my annual target a couple of weeks ago.
13 November. What a glorious day to be out cycling. And today I passed my mileage target for the year: 2,000 miles. Let's see how many miles I manage to clock up by 31 December, and then I'll set a sensible target for 2017.
