Cycling in Tasmania and, sometimes, beyond

In 2018 I was able to rise to the challenge of riding an average of 100k per week for the year.  

In 2019 I ride from Melbourne to Adelaide starting mid-March.  This went OK so I aimed to cycle 600ks a month, 6000k in 2019, in order to keep fit. This happened – although with the introduction of an electric bike mid 2019.

The task in early 2020 was to prepare for another Victorian Rail Trail adventure in March/April but then, as we all know, COVID-19 happened. We have re-scheduled that trip twice now, currently aiming at Feb/March 2023. By then we will be vaccinated, multi-boosted and covid may have mutated enough to not kill us or leave us breathless.

For 2022 I will be focussing on riding 100k a week, 5,200k for the year to keep fit for next seasons camping tours. I am also thinking about how to carry gear on Ernie the Bike E. Can I add racks or maybe a trailer? A question to be resolved.

Here’s how things are going :
