No question! Taking the weekend off, won't be back on the horse till Tuesday.

The early starts wear a bit thin unless I take every second or third Sunday off :D weak, I know!

Good work by the way.

Finally got my first ride in for the month of May. I managed 136km and 2175m of ascent.

I am very pleased.

Hopefully, depending on how I pull up, I might be able to add another 1000m tomorrow.

Damn that's a solid ride. I bet that top speed was interesting too :shock: :) .

Interestingly Strava has deleted all the descents that are on the ride.

Well, I may not be doing huge climbing like others, but I am now over halfway to my total and its only May...I am happy, especially since 99% of my figures are simply from commuting to and from work each day

I was looking through my profile of people I follow this morning.

A friend of mine is up to 181500m of ascent over 6200km for the year so far.

90% of that is on the mountain bike. :o

It's been over a week since the last post, where are all the climbers???

I haven't been able to do some decent riding for quite a few weeks and it will be one or two more weekends before I can hit the climbs for a good smash. I need some tales about the steep stuff so I can live vicariously through them. :twisted:

In good news, I am moving up into the hills here in Adelaide. My daily commute will be 40km total and the return trip is somewhere between 400-500m.

So that's 200km and 2000m free every week, right now I'm be getting 60km and 300m for the week.

Stoked!

@sss - good work!

@boss - you are a true hard man, picking new digs based on preferred riding terrain and ensuring that the ride home will never be 'casual' - nice work. Does this mean bye bye BMX commute?

Yep bye bye BMX commute. Still might ride it down the hill one day a week and catch a train home. Riding home on a BMX... Doable but very tough.

But I didn't pick the new joint just on terrain... I've been wanting to move into the hills for a long time now... Wasn't planning on making a move for about a year, but the right (read: perfect) place came up at the right price. So offer in, accepted and now it's time to put our unit on the market.

I did a race sunday that gave me 63km and 0m vertical. Guess that's what they call a flat race. :lol:

Cracked 100,000m this morning without realising.

Haven't been riding as much lately but have been able to hobble together 250-ish weeks anyway.

^ I bet it bloody does!.
This weekend it is all i can do to stay awake!... Might ( big might ) try and do some climbing this week, cold weather is wearing me down... Today I preferred a nanny nap to a ride ( mothers day today, wifey gave me stick for 30 min nap whereas a 90 minute ride would have been fine ... :-) )

Only 335km and 6800m for me :(

Big 110km/3500m yesterday though, was pretty happy with that.

Put in 700+ over 40 this morning - upper kedron, camp mountain, eatons crossing. Lovely morning. 39/23 was probably the wrong choice, though.

Turned over just shy of 2500m yesterday in around 72kms. Mind you, first time I have corrected my elevation on Strava. Garmin said 1965m for the effort so perhaps I've been selling myself short all this time :cry: Kinda feels like cheating though as who knows how many metres it truly was.

I think I'll stick to non-corrected from this point though given, as others have said, at least it may be consistently inconsistent if at all.
