I've been a bit remiss at updating bike journal... But I passed 10k on Robbie's grand Fondo last week. :)

I did 12500 last year... Won't go quite so far this year.
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

I updated bike journal to match strava :-) been 900 km's since my last confession.
Would love to say I will tick over the 15k mark before the end of the year but I some how doubt it... Maybe the weather will be very kind :-) .
Well done to everybody making their targets ( and plus some! ) :-) .

I've just rolled through 12,000K and have been knocked off No.10 position by Crawf. That's what happens when you get the man flu and miss ouit on a couple of 100K rides. :cry:
Looks like I'm on track for my goal though.

Don't give up! (Kate Bush & Peter Gabriel :) )

It's hard but you've just gotta stick with it.

Consider my daily routine: Up at 5:45, breaky and a few quick household chores then stretching then a flying 14km commute to start work at 7:15. Leave work at 15:45 for a 100km or so ride home. Arrive home at 19:15 for dinner (mostly prepare and serve meal and sometimes wash up) plus a few other household chores thrown in, then there's AUDAX admin work, and maybe some quick bike maintenance, more stretching then bed at 22:30-23:00. On my night off I do a complete grocery shop and often cook dinner as well. I also prepare all lunches for the 5 day working week for the wifey and myself. We haven't got kids thank dog! :lol:

Cheers

I'm topped out, just made 33, will not make 34, it's getting too hot in Brisbane to stay too far.

:shock: :shock:

I'm assuming that's 33 with three zeros behind it????

Impressive work...here I was hoping to get close to 10k.
I'm tired just thinking about that amount of k's

Just passed 11,500. 1000km to go. With the office closing down in 3 weeks I will lose two weeks of commuting so I'll have to do some longer rides to make sure I don't lose 500km and end up doing a mad ride on new years eve to meet my goal for the year!

Havent posted much in here but...I am about to pass 11 000 k's commuting today, with a total of nearly 11600 in overall riding.

Given that I would have been lucky to ride 2000 k's in a year previously I am pretty chuffed. Have to take into account 5-7 lost weeks to injuries and only a four day commuting week I think I have done ok.

If everything goes well, am hoping to do another 1500- 2000 k's next month.

I am pretty amazed at all the people who are doing more k's...takes a big effort and congrats to them all.

Gonna try and get another 2k in before the end of the year but not phased if I don't. Got a couple of 200km+ rides booked in which will help.

ridding? of what? Have you put on weight? :wink:

Not adding those kms to BJ? - pretty poor form for the organiser of the ACF club isn't it? :P

Looks like I'll hit my target sometime next week. If the weather gives TLL a hard time I might even get a sneak attack in on him before the line (unlikely) :)

I might be able to get a few decent rides in between Christmas and New Year to achieve this!

@TLL - here's hoping for a really, really white Christmas!

I may do the 10K club next year BUT I won't be trying to do the distance I've done this year.


My first goal this year was to take out #1 on the BJ site, about mid year my target was to stay within 5K of 1st, now I don't think I'll stay within 10K of 1st & 3rd place will probably pass me in the next week or 2.

Why? I have had constant pain in my lower back for the last 6 months (I usually have lower back soreness so this wasn't too big an issue), my cods (balls, testies, whatever) have been constantly numb for about the last 3 months, I've had saddle sores that haven't healed since around August, my hat goes off to the guy leading BJ because I'm destroying myself trying to stay in the same state little less the same town.


But the straw that broke the camels back was-

On the weekend, riding with my usual group, I went to put just a little hurt on them, whilst I could accelerate away, I couldn't lay down any kind of decent sprint, if I was racing, my sprint was that weak I would have been easy swamped, yesterday I went for a ride & found I just have no juice in my legs. I have been going through a tube of 2 different anti-inflammatory's every month, just to keep my legs in good enough condition to function off the bike.


From here to the end of the year, I'll be doing the 25km daily commute, the Saturday group ride & just easy 30-50km rides on Sundays & Mondays.

Next year I will set maybe 15K, but I won't be chasing that target, I'll be riding for the enjoyment, I know from past years I'll probably knock out somewhere over that mark, but I'm not going to actively going to chase any point.


Seem to remember why I don't really like things like strava or BJ, you can get too focused about minor things & forget the major ones (like really enjoying cycling).

Friday before last was the first day I haven't ridden in about 2 years, I'm taking 2 weeks off in Feb & not taking any bikes with me, going fishing, playing golf, sight-seeing, it's not something I've done in the last 20 to 25 years.
