Hit 180k yesterday morning.

Had a big crash a few weeks back (ride down hill > car stop suddenly for duck > run into car > land on ground > car evacuates the scene). Add that to the torn quad stuff I had back in August, pretty happy with where I'm at... all things considered.

If I can stay in one piece and my bike stays in one piece and no ducks enter my trajectory I will hit 200k, I reckon.

200k is a top effort - Hoping to push my goal out from 120k to 130k, but Festive season might have other ideas!

I'll be happy to crack 100k for the year. Nearly at 90. Pretty happy with that given that the goal at the start of the year was 60000.

I've hit 205k, my target was 200 so might see if I can get close to 250k. Crit racing is costing me a bit of meterage but also need to get ready for the Alpine Classic. :D

I've made it past 150k which I didn't see as very likely at the start of the year. However the Sydney to Melbourne (1215km) with 15k helped me get there. :)

Great effort. I had a friend who rode the SM1200 and so I was following the progress of the riders. Day 2 was a killer.

Woo hoo, cracked the 100K mark this morning on a stinking hot late morning ride.

It was 32 degrees when I was climbing. God knows what temp the bitumen was? All I know was it was sticking to the tyres :shock:

Great stuff Scott. Not far from the 10k club too!

Tell me about it. I went slowly on to a side road/driveway to let some traffic past and suddenly my tires looked like

Or 9 repeats of Bellthorpe, either way it ain't happening! 4,000m in one day killed me when I had fresh legs, and my legs atm are about as fresh as a servo sanger. Still going to try and get the remaining 218k in tomorrow for the Festive 500.
