Veloviews for December 30, 2022 – Happy New Year Everyone!

Today is the last workday of 2022 for many with a new year soon to arrive. The prospect of a new year brings hope, possibility, and renewal.

I suppose it is also that time of year when some of us make resolutions for things we wish to improve or change in our lives. Personally, I don’t really believe in New Year’s resolutions. But if you do, I wish you good luck!

2022 General Overview

This year has definitely seen its challenges with the war in Ukraine, news and political fiascos, economic ups and downs, and strange weather events.

While 2022 seemed devoid of hope at points, there were a few good things. For one, we were all allowed to leave our homes and travel to where we wanted with limited or no Covid restrictions. We were allowed to gather in public places again. And lastly (and more importantly), we could spend time with our friends and families without worry.

A Wish for 2023

My hopes for 2023 are that the new year brings less tumult, peace, prosperity, and improvements to curtail potential climate catastrophes, etc. But I also hope for more time on my bike, new adventures, more travel, and joy.

So, on Saturday night, crack open some champagne and toast to a new and better year to come in 2023.
