"An R-12 here, an R-12 there...

...and pretty soon we're talking real bling."

This curmudgeon says: The RUSA R-12 program is really not about cycling, not about fitness, and not about 'the bike'.

It is a challenge of logistics and scheduling.

If you have the right family and job situation, a moderate climate, and reasonable routes nearby, you can do it.

April is the best month to start.  You'll get eight months done in fine weather, and having eight months 'on the record' will motivate you through the winter.

So just compare yourself to photos of me and laugh heartily.  Then start planning.  April is just around the corner.
