My cycling year review 2013

With 2013 drawing to a close I thought it would be good to review where I have ridden this year and highlight some other special things that have happened to our special little company.

Alpe d’Huez

I have kept up my 100 percent record of cycling up Alpe d’Huez at least once a month through out the year. The highlight of the year was probably my ascent the day before the Tour de France with a German Film crew interviewing me. I did not get a new fastest time this year but it was great sharing the rides with our customers.

In the Media – lots of cycling

New destinations cycled

New Cols tackled

I climbed a number of new cols this year but these two were probably the most memorable.

Looking forward to 2014

We are  filling up for 2014 and have already had to provide a 3rd Alpe d’Huez and Mont Ventoux trip.

I will be heading off to New Zealand for 3 weeks of cycling in January including two sportives. In March I will be competing in the Puncheur sportive in Brighton, UK with a mystery ex AFC Bournemouth football player. We are also planning a club ride in Bristol as well for all our customers that live in the area.

Oh and I have also entered my first ever half marathon run and also am planning on doing the Alpe d’Huez Duathlon in July.
