For those who follow my Instagram account, you may have seen the progress of my latest craft project.

Cycling in 2014

My goal for the year was to cycle around 1400 miles and I managed to ride 1236 miles, climbed 21 thousands feet, in 86.5 hours, which is pretty good even if I say so myself. I also targeted to complete two cycling events which I managed as well.

NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour

After 2+ months of preparation, I finished the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour in May.

First 30+ miles ride

Done my first 30+ miles ride with the Princeton Free Wheelers group this morning. We were cruising all the way and I had no problem going the distance.

Now I’m much more confident about being able to complete the 5 Boro 40 miles route.
