Day 4 and 5 both in warmer weatherAn overcast system moved in and has created a warm, sticky feeling in the air. I struggled to get moving to start with as it felt like a slog, but I got it done both days and today was particularly quick on the technical sections of the trail, which I was happy about. Very warm though. I don't want winter to end here in Townsville, it's been wonderful for these long cycling ventures.
Day 3 of the fundraiser cyclingI took an easier day today to give my legs and butt a break. Only out to the beach and back for 16km.
Day 2 of the fundraiser cycling for cancerToday was a harder start after yesterday's high speed effort. My saddle felt a little more hard today than I recall, but it was just my flabby butt not used to such enthusiasm from my rides 😂.
Day 1 of cycling-Started the Challenge with an epic Mountain bike rideOn Monday, I thought it best to start strong while I am keen and ready to go. I rode the UTR trail x 2, the connecting Shelley Beach trail and the technical Smedley's trail (which the council workers I passed were working hard to clear from overgrowth) then out on the Lagoon trail Loop. A decent start to the week to honour all those who have donated and all those who are fighting cancer.
A beautiful cool day out at PallarendaToday David came with me as I went on one last training ride before next weeks big event.
A ride with David to get ready for next weekJumped on the bike again on Saturday to keep in shape for the Cycle For Cancer challenge which happens next week. David and I went out to the beach and back and it was cool and comfortable.
Bushy Beach and BackA quick 18km ride out to bushland beach and back today. Lovely sunny day.
Another great training rideUnder The Radar Trail plus the Freshwater loop made for an excellent training session today.
Headed to Paluma range againWent back up the range to have another training ride. We rode 18-20km approximately along part of the technical single track Paluma Push race course. A beautiful sunny day and perfect cool weather for sweating on the uphill climb.
Paluma push a good way to get ready for the September cancer 200km bike challengeThis past weekend we got to ride Paluma complete with mud, wind and cold temps in the rainforest. An excellent way to keep the cycling bug going strong. Prepping me for the September 200km challenge for cancer research.
