….This isn’t my now customary look back over the year.
What it is, however, is a look back at what goals I have achieved over the course of 2011, with one eye on what my 2012 will become.
Why the random pic? Well the Spanish national team score lots of goals yeah ! so ………. (Oh and I have NEVER EVER Wore a soccer jersey so small)
So, what have I achieved ?

Wow, I wasn’t expecting that MANY of my personal goals to be met tbh, I thought I’d had a good all round year on the bike but I didn’t quite realize just how “Successful” I’d been, It’s just set up 2012 to be one HELL of a tasty year for some new goals.
Stay tuned for my year in review and last weeks (and next) ride reports, there is some good stuff planned for both !
