FYI: It appears that ADA has two cycling jerseys this year, one for Team Red, and one for Red Riders. Team Red is black and red, and is the same jersey for the country, but also includes shorts and bibshorts as options. Red Rider jerseys sound like they will be the same as last year with the locale on the side.

CGM. I think I did try once, it was tricky and took longer having to ride slowly to focus, than had I just stopped to check.

Question: Do any of you test while riding? If so how do you juggle everything without crashing? Or do you like a sane person stop and check?

great job Andy. I too had 4700 miles this year.

I just completed the Rapha Festive 500 challenge before New Years - that's riding 500km between Dec 23 and 31. It wasn't easy doing that in upstate NY, but the snow mostly held off this year and I was able to get enough 30 mile rides in on top of commuting. 4700 miles for 2011 and hoping to finally break 5000 this year!
