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

Here’s how things are going :

Born in 1946 I learnt to cycle about 10 years later. On a bike with rods connecting brake levers to the brakes - anyone remember those? I emigrated to Australia (from the UK) in 1974 and moved to Tasmania in 1984. Bicycles were in my life for most of that time although sometimes they were replaced by motorised two wheels for a bit more excitement. On reaching 70 I decided to stick to pedal power but in 2019 an electric recumbent made an appearance. It is good!

    good to hear you got back from your epic Vic/SA ride in one piece, you don’t know anyone who wants to by a trike do you?

    1. Sorry Rob – don’t know of anyone. I thought it must be yours on Gumtree.

      A pity it didn’t work for you but I trust the two wheel version is still working well.
