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 is to prepare for another Victorian Rail Trail adventure in March/April.

The Spring winds this year are proving trying. Any wind over 30kph makes for a difficult ride and when in 40+ kph winds I am just not riding. It’s just not nice. This is, of course, slowing down my approach to completing the 2019 challenge of 6,000 kilometers in the year – but at 94% complete, I am not out of it yet!!!
