If you know what life is worth, you will look for yours on earth…
What a year it was... or wasn’t, actually. What can I say about the 2020 cycling experience?
Having begun the year with lots of indoor training, in January I achieved a new all-time record level of fitness.
But it was all downhill from there. Before the spring outdoor season began, the outbreak of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic caused the cancellation of all group rides and every major event on the calendar. On top of that, I kept my solo rides short to avoid risky convenience store replenishment stops. In terms of outdoor riding, 2020 was a complete and utter write-off, as I logged a 20-year low 1,140 outdoor miles.
For the first time since 2001, I didn’t do a single century ride.
