Guess who’s in da house?? Been a while, all that new forum password hoopla at start of year didn’t agree with my digestion. Anyhoo.
Been a bit going on in my cycle life, started racing about 6 months ago. Local Crits and Road/Kermesse situations. Started easy in D grade, won that series, and money!, now managing to mix it with C grade and having an absolute ball. Racing has totally changed my outlook on riding, as well as fitness levels, which have gone up by at least 150%. It’s amazing what you learn about yourself when you’re averaging 193bpm heartrate for 45mins solid. Still on my Scott Addict, and paired with a pair of Zipp 404s, a very handy and lightweight Crit weapon.
Girlfriend and I have a cycle tour of Japan lined up for October, which is going to be totes rad. The guy that runs Ride Japan Tours is a local Cairns boy now based over there. Looking at a 5 day tour, about 650km and over 7,000m climbing. Suffice to say, hills training has stepped up somewhat.
Anyway, good to be back.
