Twenty twenty three was an extremely rewarding cycling year with many great rides undertaken.
Apart from a very cold, wet and windy January I managed to cycle every month.
Of the 82 rides completed this year, 18 were indoor ‘Spinningfiets’ sessions, leaving 64 outdoor cycle rides.
I covered the most distance, 2725 km, on my Cube Nature Pro.
I also cycled 2547 km on my Cube eBike, acquired halfway through the year.
This year I have tried to plan interesting, challenging adventures on the bike(s) rather than simply riding many kilometres for the sake of it.
Quality over quantity has been the objective.
I have been extremely fortunate this year to have experienced some truly amazing cycle rides.
Throughout the year I have continued my second hobby, photography.
There are over 4000 images of my cycling adventures in 2023, all of which can be viewed in my galleries here.
As I enter my 69th year, 2024 promises to be an even greater cycling year, with several longer, challenging rides planned.
