Two Thousand Thirteen – The year of the road bike

tree

31557600 seconds, 525960 minutes, 8766 hours, 365 days, 52 weeks or really just a year (yes these numbers are rounded off). Time is quite fascinating actually as it is relative. That is to say it’s a different experience from person to person depending on factors like your individual speed to another object but getting in relativity theory is a bit heavy for this minor blog post. It’s more of a summary of the past year actually as a lot as happened during the year 2013.

Although you already get bombarded with plenty of Best of’s, Top 100′s, New Year’s resolutions and the like around this time of year I couldn’t help myself and just had to make one too, although a bit more personal. So without further ado I’ll list my personal achievements and of course my favourite album, movie, documatary, TV series and gadget that I discovered (so not just released) in 2013.

As you can see I’m quite a few related to road cycling these days (it’s very addictive), hence the title. I promise I’ll blog about that soon enough. All that’s left to say from me is:
