I will also be at the TDU, not sure how I am going to make it. I hope they have a van to pick me up when I can't ride anymore. :mrgreen:

Another 40kms this morning (was an awful ride actually - headwind all the way home). However! I'm still determined to get to the 6666 - I have about 87km left to go :)

You will make It Julie. :D
3 days left and all you need to do is 87km,
I hope to get in 58 tomorrow, I hope I make it to 4000 this year.
I had a great swim and jog, this morning, I just feel I need cross training

I think you might just beat me to it! It's been great having extra motivation at the end :) I thought last week that I might just give up and not worry about the 6666 but I needed to do it for myself - fingers crossed that the bike/me/and the weather all behave until I get there :)

Me too Julie, it's been tough going sometimes to stay motivated, but I'm very happy to be this close....I started late with this challenge not upping my goal until mid Feb I think! The friendship and gaunlet throwing has been good too, even if some of the blokes over took me months ago :roll:

Getting out on Christmas Day was good, some members of my family thought that I was nuts for riding back home from the Gold Coast :shock: A tailwind for 60% of the ride made it easier :wink:

Good luck with the remaining k's... :)

Hi apple,
Its the second King of the Mountain, late into the distance (about 120) that I will be pleased to be over. My niece owns a couple of gyms in Adelaide & she invited me to join her team, hope they are not all too young??????
Good Luck, I'm sure as two sober people we will give it our best shot :lol: :lol:

Well todays ride nearly killed me. Thanks to Shane for tagging alog and waiting for me. Next time I do an almost 140km mtb ride with 1900 metres of climbing, I am not riding 80kms the day before.

I was doing it tough at the 50km mark but the boys kept me going.

A few photos off my phone.

Our first rest stop

We had climb all the way up there.

This was my saviour after 90kms :D

I will let Shane post his Strava link as mine is in 2 parts after my Gamin went flat.

Congratulations celeste boy, good day to get out for you 6666 ride.

Headed out on Mugglechops Epic MTB Adventure today. Good day out on the 29er, I'll put a bit of a report together for my next Rapha Festive 500 update and post it here as well to add to Mugglechop's photos. Thanks for organising the ride.

Nice to finally meet norbs who turned up at the start to say hello.

Well done guys. I am hoping the last 3 days of 2011 will let me get to at least 6000kms. After I use today to recover from the past 2 days.

You too mate. I can see why you can get up the hills in a hurry. You'd blow away in a stiff breeze. :)

Good effort Lewy.

I am up to 964kms for the month with a few more days to go. 1000kms is there to be had. :)
