IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO PLAN A GREAT RIDE.  This year I really wanted to ride Eric’s BLACK FRIDAY ride – 97k of country roads.  But, it just wasn’t in the cards.

Stuff happens.

And, it may happen again.

But, what I’ve found is if it gets on the calendar it’s likely to happen… and epic rides like Eric’s Black Friday need to be on the calendar as early as possible.

So, there… I’ve planned my last big ride for 2018, Black Friday.

The first big ride will most likely be the Santa Barbara Road Race.

Then, HUNKR OC in March.

April is gonna be big:  Sea Otter, San Luis Rey Road Race, and possibly Whiskey 50.

May will be CBR.

June will be HUNKR GMR.

July is always the unOFFICIAL TMWC.

Maybe, just maybe, September will be LoToJa.

November the final HUNKR of the 2018 series.

I love having big stuff on the calendar.  It keeps me looking forward and keeps me taking care of my body.

Basically, the big stuff makes the small stuff easy…

… and the small stuff makes success at the big stuff more likely…

… like burning off the stuffing and pie.
