I like to have some kind of a target event or events lined up. It helps me with motivation for my daily rides. I think next year, I'm going to aim to get Planet Ultra's King of the Mountains jersey. That involves completing three specific century rides in Southern California, each of which has more than 10,000' of climbing. One of them is the Breathless Agony, which I did this year, so I know it should be within reach. Equally, I was slow on the B.A. and my knee hurt a lot afterwards, so there is plenty of work to do to be more prepared this time.
That's my ideal kind of goal - challenging but definitly doable
