I see a few goal-oriented Challenges out there for next year. Are you a goal-oriented person? Care to share your goals here?

I'll start. I've been working on a goal of riding in all fifty states in the USA. My 2018 goal is to push the current tally up to 49, with plans to hit #50 (Hawaii) in 2019. My second goal is to finally do my first multi-day off-road bikepacking trip. This is one I've been dreaming about for a while and I'm certainly not getting any younger so this will be the year.

So what are your 2018 goals?
Say it out loud and make those dreams happen!

I'm making the same Goal as this year, 5000 miles. I'm gonna fall about 1500 short so I'm hoping I can beat my Goal by 1500 next year. It all depends on my free time.

A. New Bike
B. Sebring 12hr (only if my gf helps me out with the Registration Fee) I remember when it cost me $65 to get in. Its double that now.

C. To ride different roads (I always say that every year)
D. To stay healthy and keep riding

I am with you handyhannah. My collarbone pain is gone some of the depression that came with it isn't yet. So yeah I hope to ride lots more this year with no pain in my collarbone and nip the depression in the bud.

In case you didn't read it yet. Yes Zman got some new eye candy bike. A crazy light weight gravel race bike. A 2017 Raleigh Roker Comp. Still trying to get the bugs worked out at LBS as Fedex decided to destroy the rear derailleur hanger bracket but putting some heavy weight on the box I guess. I know this much already though since the bike is all carbon fiber it feels like a feather compared to the Tamland 1 and is 5 lbs. lighter.

Have any clue on what I should name the new bike

Lemond Victoirre = Victoria Secret
Tamland 1 = Tammy Lane I am her Clark Kent.

Roker Comp Clueless @ Newburg Pa.

I have had the same goal for the past several years with a slight twist biking the best trail in each state listed by Bicycling Magazine. However, after 51 years married I have decided to make it to 52. I wish you the very best.
Be safe.

Hey Congrats on the new Bike. I didnt realize you got a carbon. I knew about the Tamland but not this bike. Color? And dont laugh at the name-Al. Al Roker. Lol. I have male and female names for my bikes.
This year was just such an odd year all around. I agree. Health issues or inabilities (disabilities) led to some depression tendencies. Any miles i rode more than this year or even getting out on bike more will be an improvement.

My big goal will be to rediscover my biking self. It's been a bit of an emotional past almost two years. 2018 should not have that roller coaster for me.

So don't laugh handyhannah but if I am going to ride a bike it has to have a female name. BIke was listed @ 19.85 lbs probably in a 54 cm or 56 cm frame. Mine is a 56 cm. With the wheel reflectors on an upgraded Brooks Imperial saddle(heavier than the stock one) and the Garmin mounting bracket it came in @ 20 lbs 12 ounces. With the lightest Shimano XPD pedals thinking m9000 2 carbon water bottle cages and a lyzne mini pump and the Garmin 520 the bike weighs 22 lbs 1 ounce. A lot lighter than my Tamland which started out at 25.13 lbs. Same identical geometry of the bike and is why I bought it. You can tell it when you pick up the bike. For some reason Raleigh decided to stop making this bike and had a late 2017 production run of them. With the Corporate discount I bought the $2799 bike for around $1500 sweet. Good luck in your riding this next year.


color fire engine red and yes red is faster

How about Red Rover. Rhymes with Roker. Lol. Or find the name of a gorgeous red haired Irish gal and name the bike after her.
I have named all my bikes but one. I never really liked one bike and just couldnt find a name for it. I didnt like how it fit. It was My one and only womans specific bike. Come to find out too small for me. Still in my stable but it has a potential new owner once a friend sees it.
