In the final week before I moved to Tassie, I rode 440km. That was in between working a full five day week and lots of last minute packing and house clearing.
Looking at my Garmin history report, in the four weeks since arriving here I’ve only managed to ride 420km! Hmmm. I know other aspects of my life have taken a much higher priority, but I really need to step that up a notch.
Of course distance isn’t everything. In that final English week I only clocked up 2780 metres (9150ft) of climbing. Over here I may have ridden less distance, but I’ve climbed 7925 meters (26,000ft of elevation gain). So I’m roughly doing three times the climbing per mile ridden. You may have seen on the news we’ve had some pretty brutal storms down here over the past few days. The North was the worst hit. We were very lucky down in the South. Still, I must ride my bike more often! :-)
