First double metric for the year on Saturday.

A solo Sunshine Sunshine Coast to Brisbane via Mt Mee and Mt Glorious/Nebo. 206klm with 2700m of climbing. And into a persistent and gusty Southeasterly.

That was fun.

Backed up last Sunday's metric 100 with another this week, felt great after the ride this week compared to last week.

Did my first Imperial in about 4 years yesterday, finished on 170k with 94kms of headwind. Probably could have got 200 but would have been really pushing my luck.

137km with 1500m elevation for the 3 Dams hills event on the weekend. I rode within myself and was seriously considering pushing on to crack the 160km, until the final two climbs kicked my butt and I called it a day after crossing the finish line :D

2 metric centuries for April so far.
Last week to Mt White, and today to Palm Beach

That's 4 metric and 1 imperial this year.

just back from riding sort of Highway 1 from San Francisco to LA over 9 days, 4 of the days were metric centuries (I'm absolutely counting a 99.5! especially as an estimated 112 came out at 135km!) a couple of long days with 1200m or so of ascent - as luck works the longer days had head winds :-( all good for the mind

May so far... 2 imperial & 1 double metric :D

YTD Totals. Metric 14, Imperial 7 & double metrics 4
