Suburban Assault 2015 Recap – Where The Hell Have I Been?

with one comment

First let me say, Happy New Year. I hope your 2016 is full of good health, happiness and many good rides.

2016

When your year has been as busy as mine, all you have to do is blink and then it’s all over. Here is a quick recap of some of the highlights. As I’ve posted already, there were some big bike events for me this year, this included going to Cyclists in Suits, taking part in a trail cleanup day, my city was awarded a Bronze Bike Friendly Community Status and we hosted our annual Bike To Work Day Recharge Station. That was all before the summer.

In addition to helping out with Bike To Work Day, my son and I volunteered to help out at one of the stations at the Mesquite charity ride. It was nice to give back, after being supported on many Richardson Wild Rides.

Rest Your Bike

During the summer, we took our first family vacation in 5 years – a much needed break. This time, we went to New Orleans – close enough to drive, but far enough to feel like we went somewhere.

Once we were back much of my free time was spent actually riding and bike commuting. I even managed to get some challenging grocery rides in.

All summer long, we were able to teach a few Adult Learn To Ride classes. Those are always rewarding.

This fall, I taught a couple of Traffic Skills 101 classes in my own city. It was nice to keep that local. My advocacy group, BikeDFW, hosted a table at the Texas Bike and Beer Expo.

This year’s Black Friday Ride got rained out. I’m still looking for a makeup date. We did have a great time at the Richardson Christmas Parade.

It looks like I rode more this year, than I have in previous years. I reached a new goal of 2,400 miles (riding and walking).

Finally, to cap off my year, my wife talked me into getting a new SUV. Let me introduce you to my Kona Ute, Melba Davis.
