That resolution kicks in in earnest next week as I intend to full adopt the "Biker Software Monk" persona and ride to my Enterprise Integration with Spring course at Skills Matter, and then ride to the Spring eXchange where I'll be delivering a keynote on Friday.
Next year I'm looking to attend a couple of conferences, at least, in Europe and the US. Many more opportunities to get out on the roads and enjoy a slightly slower, more enjoyable time.
Be assured I'll be writing up my experience here as I spend a year being the full "Biker Software Monk". This should be fun!
