hope all you NSW 6ker's are all staying safe, and any other 6ker's threatened with fires.

Stay safe everyone, keep an eye on your fluid intake if you're out riding in this heat.

Well today was my first day of commuting for the year and what a day for it. The Garmin pretty much agreed with the bom as I rode past the weather station on the way in, 6:45 and it was already 31 degrees. The trip home via a different route typically finds hotter areas for most of the trip and today was no exception, the Garmin topping out at 49 in a couple of spots. It's the first time I remember the brake levers becoming uncomfortably hot to touch

Thought I'd break the ice today. Just done some summer maintenance on the bike: new gear cables and outers, pulled the V brakes off and gave them a really good clean and basically cleaned the whole bike and put some proofide on the saddle. Bought one of those Aldi bike repair stands. Very impressive for $22. Solid and holds the bike well, a great buy for a home mechanic.

Anyway just 20KM today and then I'll start catching the KMs when I return to work on the 21st. How do you get the colour into the Strava line in the sig?

Firstly a best wishes to all the firies and the people affected by the fires. I know there is a fire blazing near lithgow (my old stomping ground) so I hope all friends and family are safe.

Went out for 60klms to La Pa this morning before work. Tough ride with the wind but a welcome change to the commute home yesterday.

Have a good day all.

Did about 50km and did some climbing too. I can't wait to be able to tackle hills in a gear greater than 1st!

17km ahead with another ride for Friday and then another century on Sunday (assuming we don't get a monsoon trough forming).

Garmin 200 should be here soon too so I'll be looking forward to setting some PRs on Strava!

I've done a few laps of it too this week. I've resigned myself to getting up at 5-5:30 in order to avoid the heat. Its the only way to get some serious k's before i start work next week. Dusk/night is too irritating, with all the insects, suicidal rabbits and suicidal pedestrians around

About 115kms on the SS MTB with around 75kms in the dirt.

I actually rode past my house at 90kms but wanted my first hungy for the year :D

Included a river crossing and a Ferry ride.

Hmm, stuffed up & manually entered a ride on strava twice. I deleted the duplicate but even after updating it is still showing in stat monkey.

Any hints or do I live with an undeserved 30k ?
