Add extra hill workout after work

To increase my exercise level, I will add an extra hill loop to my daily bike commute 3 or more days per week.

Ride all of the commutes!

In august I sold my truck, and bought a cheap bike. I started commuting almost daily, despite the intensity of my commute (didn't think it through). Come 2014, it's my resolution to not only bike 99% of my work commute, but all local trips to restaurants, grocery stores, so on and so forth. Even with the wife and three kids.

Get wetter

My resolution is to ride even when it's not a 100% perfect ride day. Maybe a little rain, snow, or whatever. I usually wimp out if it looks like rain :)

Scott Thomson 94 days ago

Toughen up!

My resolution is to brave the elements on my bike commute 7mi each way in Ann Arbor, MI. I currently am a fair weather commuter and wimp out at the slightest chance of rain/snow. I know this backpack would keep my gear dry which is half the battle!

More Court Time!

My resolution is to get more time on the polo court, get better at the game and hit at least two tourneys this year! A bag like this will make riding with my mallets alot easier.

Increase Bike Commuting on Campus

I work at a university where half of the students are commuter students that do not live on campus. Many of them drive and complain about the lack of parking available. I am in the process of organizing several group rides and updating the bike racks on campus to make them more user friendly and more readily available. I hope that by raising awareness and ease of commute that I will be able to increase the overall percentage of students that bike commute to the university.

Get my father back on a bike

My father (now 92) biked regularly until a stroke about 8 years ago. I'd like to get him back out, perhaps on a recumbent tandem trike to address balance and strength issues. Thanks to all the RAGBRAI riders on unusual machines who raised my awareness of the option

Helping others..

I am going to help another person achieve their riding goals this year - training them to feel confident, to feel good mentally & physically & to realise that adventure & passion can start with riding a bike - it can lead to other opportunities, to meet new people, to foster relationships & to feel apart of something that is a community on a global scale. This will be a great year to help others achieve their cycling & life goals.....AND its going to fun all the way! Thats what friends are all about!

Bike more, drive less

I want to bike more than the 10 or so miles I am doing a week now. It is too easy, too often to leave the bike at home and get in the car, when I can grab the bike and get there in the same amount of time.

Bring the message to the wee masses

I left my desk job and am back in school studying to be a teacher. Part of my mission is to bring the message of bike transit (and fun!) to kids! I'm so glad the country is starting to recognize biking for what it is: a fun, environmentally friendly, community building, and fantastic way to get around! I need a new backpack and this would rock!

Friendly Peer Pressure

Of course I resolve to bike more, life is just better on two wheels! But this year I also want to make an effort to encourage others to get out on a bike with me. I'd like to start a fun community ride where everyone is invited, no matter what gear you have, to share the joy of bike riding with friends and neighbors.

Getting my mojo back

Toward the end of 2012 I had a collision with a car, which broke my pelvis and totaled my bike. After months of recovery, many difficult discussions with my wife, I started riding again by mid-year. Mentally still insecure, but getting better. I'm working to make 2014 the year I'm back into form, stick with the pack, and put the pressure on! If nothing else, just to bring the fun back.
