It's hurting me too you realise. I had a coot-tha-fest weekend planned. And I can't ride next weekend unless someone wants to look after a 4 year old (she's not really ready for coot-tha)


I was meant to be riding to Byron on Sunday...and racing tomorrow but that's just been canceled now!

Summer in Brisbane :wink:

You will feel right at home then!

Hopefully things will clear early in the week for you.

Won't be much happening this weekend either :(
Can't even take out the CX Disc bike in this crappy weather due to shot bearings.
To take the all carbon roadie out in the wet or not?

The rain's not so much of a problem but I think if I tried riding I'd get blown off the bike. I knew I should have bought an indoor trainer. What a time to have brand new wheels <sigh> I think I can still get the 800 even if the weather stays like this for a few more days but it is cutting it close.

At least my empty rain water tank is filling up :-)

Well done all, especially gretaboy for 1000 cummuter miles! Epic!

Tough ride this morning, seeking out elevation. One guy stuck to me so I tried to break him on a small 5% climb. I blew up near the top and he came back to me on the descent :oops:

I'm at 577 miles, wooh! That's just 37km for the 600 miles, but 70km for 1000km. This has been great motivation.

I see a South Aussie is in 2nd spot overall. Not far from the leader :!: And Jason is still 5th!!

I'm thinking of taking the rack off my commuter and heading out in the rain....22 miles in the rain and wind shouldn't been to hard, should it???

Done the 800 when I load some rides off the Garmin. Going to struggle to get to 1000 now as back at work. Bloody work getting in the way of life again. :lol:

Wow, there is no way I'm riding in this weather. My next door neighbour has just had two big trees blown down. I can't imagine being able to stay upright on a bicycle. I wanted rain but this can now stop please!

Send some of that water down our way. No rain for 10 weeks, it's as dry as a chip.
Dorothea Mackellar was right.

Finally cracked 400mi - the 5 days off the bike hurt, but I've got 4 more days to try and hit 500 at least.

working in a tv station when theres a grand slam on was always going to hurt my cycling total this month ( dont forget the warm up tournaments )
am currently at 373miles. fairly decent start to the year.

At least get to 400! That will be a great achievement.

Completed 600 miles today, ticked over 1000km also 8)
