Ready to go some time this week (very icy today) - only 82.7km off my 5000km annual goal too
I've improved a lot over the last few days, possibly the anaesthetic effects of Christmas cheer, and am hopeful that I can have a go over the weekend - even if it's only 1 leg pedalling!
Got my ride in today - also achieved my 5000km goal for 2017
No 31 well done @wicker man
Right that's me completed for the year.
Total mileage (inc non challenge) for the year 3889 (currently), so I am going to have to go out tomorrow for at least 11 miles.
Not too bad as the first months of the year were blighted by surgery.
Did my final points scoring ride for the year today at just over 55km. Will be out again briefly tomorrow, but that's just because I need 16 miles in order to reach my 3,000 mile target (outdoor cycling only) for the year - have no intention of going any further than I have to, especially as the wind is meant to be stronger tomorrow and it was bad enough today!
Well done to everyone that completed the challenge this year.
A happy new year to you all.
Last ride of the year and a first for me - intentional off-roading. Only 32.2 miles but makes a 50 miler a walk in the park. Lots & lots of splodgy mud and the wet grass was like ice. I was on my daughter's bike and didn't get the gears sorted until we were on the way back. Then just before we left the mud the guy in front went down leaving me nowhere to go. I suppose road riders used to riding tight in a group need to loosen up. Anyway a splendid mud bath to remember it by. The other fellas were in danger of falling over laughing.
I think I will stick to roads next year.
Done it! Almost 5 weeks since my accident and being told by the medics to allow 6 weeks recovery, but the leg wasn't feeling too bad so I thought I'd have a go.
I chose the flattest, easiest course that I could and had the added benefit of a mild, sunny morning. Even the wind was calmer than forecast, so luck was with me.
The ride was a bit of a struggle though and I was unable to put much power through the injured leg, I was about 2 mph slower than I'd be when fit.
Nevertheless, I finished without too much discomfort and there has been no adverse reaction so far. I also managed to get over 4,000 miles for the year but am frustrated to end up on 98 points!
Well done @kapelmuur . That's great news.
I’m done too! Just being lazy and haven’t posted up my December rides yet. Will do tomorrow. Well Done everyone, great achievements all round. Happy new year!
