Flying through the finish.

OK, That was fun...

Done!

Well, that's it done. A long but really enjoyable ride. The first half in the Adelaide Hills, including some recently burnt areas. But otherwise really pleasant. The second half was a bit harder on flatter country but with more wind to deal with.

Many thanks for your help. together we raised $839.00 that will go towards cancer research.

That and a new PB of 78Ks. All up a great day.

Yarra Boulevard

One week to go, and old blokes don't bounce. Well this one doesn't anyway. It was over a month ago when I had that little fall, but I'm still struggling to get my distances up again.

Rode the Yarra Boulevard today. Started from Springvale road for a total of 48Ks. I'm calling it 2/3's of next Fridays ride, so I'll call that prepared enough. It'll have to be.

I'm looking forward to the event, it'll be a hoot riding with however many people in the lead up to the final day of the Tour Down Under.

Lets go....

Mullum Creek Loop

A wonderful ride around the Mullum Creek Loop today with a deviation to have a look at the refreshed Chander Hwy ex road bridge. 56k ride, with all the hills at the end as it was getting hotter. Still cool at 30 deg compared to the tempratures is SA at the moment.

This is me on the Chandler Hwy bridge trying to show off my 'Ride for a Reason' sleaves. 

Back on the bike

Having shed a bit of skin for the cause on Tuesday, today was an easy 30K ride to get the legs moving again. Fantastic morning for a ride along the Main Yarra Trail.

Ouch

Todays 'training'/commute ride didn't go quite to plan, have to work from home instead.

Have to try again on Thursday.

Ovens Valley ride

Wonderful day to ride Myrtleford to Bright and return.

I'm Riding for a reason in January

I’m challenging myself during the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under this January with the Ride for a Reason team to fundraise and help us work towards a cancer free future!

The money raised through Ride for a reason enables Cancer Council to fund vital prevention, research, advocacy and support programs that save lives. 

With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real.

Donate to support my ride and help us work towards a cancer free future!
