Goals for 2016

New year, new goals

Get married
I'm looking forward to June!

See friends more
Very easy to get into a routine and not spend time with your friends. Spend quality time with marvellous people at least once a month.

Winter mountaineering
Climb at least one grade IV, Green Gully, Comb Gully or North East Buttress on Ben Nevis are top of the list. Accompany Louise up her first Grade I climb.

General milage targets
Try and beat last 2015's Strava stats - 2512 miles cycling, 327 miles running.

Try and get an entry into this years 3 Peaks Cyclocross race.

100 mile bike ride
Time to crack out a century ride.

I enjoyed my October Friday night bikepacking adventure and I'd like to something similar again. The odd after work MTB trip or a multi-day Coast-to-Coast ride. To be decided

Dales MTB
More riding the MTB in the Yorkshire Dales - so much choice!

As ever, tick off some more Wainwrights. Perhaps a weekend trip to the Northern Fells?

Hardmoors 26.2
My good pal Vix speaks very highly of the Hardmoors races. Time to try one.

Unspecified long distance walk
Maybe something in the 50 mile region, perhaps the 3 Rings of Shap or similar.

OMM / Saunders / LAMM
Will have to see what my availability looks like but I still want to try and do a 2 day mountain marathon. I need a willing partner!


  1. Some lovely stuff on here JP. And highly achieveable for you. Get 'em ticked!

  2. and where's the climbing goals or the Peak District friends visit ? mmm
