Heading into a stiff breeze I began the S24O trip to Ross. After the first 10 kilometers I realised this was actually going to be an S36O (sub 36 hour Overnight camp) trip as the going was slow.Continue reading “A training S36O to Ross”
Colin, Rob and I decided to spend Saturday morning cruising the Launceston shared bike / walking trails. We met at the free parking area next to the Mowbray Cricket Ground – where Ricky Ponting began his career playing grade cricket. Who’s Ricky Ponting? Well you’re not a cricket fan are you?Continue reading “Three Trikes do the Launceston Trails”
The patch for succeeding with the Coffeeneuring Challenge arrived during January. Organising the Challenge, checking the results and arranging for the patches to be designed, made and despatched is quite a job. Thanks Mary !!Continue reading “January 2019 Wrap”
My last overnight cycle trip to Deloraine was in February 2018 (https://tonyscycling.blog/2018/02/04/week-5-2018-including-an-overnight-deloraine-cycle-camp/#more-80).
I also cycled one in 2016 as well – so it is becoming a traditional Tony summer ride. In 2016 I cycled using the old road between Deloraine and Launceston. This road is quite busy and the traffic flies along so last year I re-routed and went through Bracknell and Osmaston. I will do that again this year but in addition will start by cycling to Cressy.

My 2018 Challenge to Self (ride 100k a week or 5,200k in the year) is coming along really well. I will have to press on next week though as after that it’s close to the Christmas / New Year period when not too much riding can be fitted in.Continue reading “Week #50. 2018. Nearly there.”
