Madame Prez Says

Danelle Laidlaw


A brand new year - yippee! And what plans do you have? I have never been one to make New Year's resolutions - I have always thought of it as only setting myself up for failure. But I do like to plan something special for my cycling season. That might mean purchasing a new bike or travelling to some new place to do a ride. Or it might involve riding with some different people. It could entail doing a whole randonne series. Or it could even mean introducing someone new to the idea of doing randonnes. Whatever plans you have for 2001, I hope they include something new and exciting in cycling.

Last year, I set myself the goal of doing as many of the scheduled 200's as I possibly could. I ended up doing 5. This year, I have set my sights on doing London-Edinburgh-London. It is great to have something to plan for and to look forward to.

We are lucky to have such a large number of people working hard to make sure that we have a very successful season in 2001. If you are able to help with any of the rides, please feel free to contact any of the ride organizers. And you don't have to wait until the official start of the season - get out there now and really have a great year! See you on the road.
