Then rode home. About 100km with about 2000m climbing. Pretty pooped now
Definitely do a recover ride today - go around the block a few times. otherwise you won't be able to walk for a week let alone ride
Yeah will do. Never used to 'recovery ride' but know i feel alot better when i do. It will be a spin on the rollers tonight tho as i wont get home until late.

There's a guy doing a cancer fundraising ride in a couple of weeks, which involves sponsoring him for each full lap of cootha he can do inside 24 hours. Gotta give him some credit, that is going to be one hellish 24 hours... Information on how to sponsor him is on the notice. How many laps do you reckon you could manage in 24 hours?
Well, that guy is in for some pain. Hope he is taking the week after off from work
My guess is...(assuming he is a fit guy who does Cootha regularly)...
- Guess-timate 1 back loop of Cootha anywhere from 20mins to 45mins depending on if he stops for a breather (i would!). I dont think he would go back down to the bottom of the botanic gardens ramp each time. Just keep doing the loop.
- Factor in some time to eat/sleep and ponder how the pros do it
- Within 24 hours, im wager that he will do 22 full loops
I might try and see if i can keep him company on a few loops. It an impressive goal thats for sure.
