Day of rest

Its day three of our cycling holiday down south. I’m in a good holiday mode, which is great. It at least partially compensates for the physical discomfort of the last two days of riding.

Day one Quinninup to Manjimup

Day one was a heavy day. 3805 calories on the wahoo counter. 45.7 Km with about 800 metres of climb. Hard work.

Day 2 Donnelly River to Manjimup

I think this should have been the harder day, but I was still tired from day one so I didn’t push quite as hard. Mostly because I couldn’t.

But technically a longer and harder ride. At least this time I didn’t need medical evacuation from the trail and made it all the way to Manjimup

944 metres of climb over 50km of off road trail. I guess the satisfaction at the end of the ride was worth it.

Welcome to 2022

Well, its been a nice break over christmas. I can’t complain really.

I’ve managed to get a few bike rides in, which is nice. And really its been pretty good over the christmas and new year period.

I’m getting ready for the onslaught of 2022 – its hard to know what to expect. But an overloaded health care system is pretty likely once we open the borders. I think the next few weeks will be a revelation for how the health care systems will cope (or perhaps won’t cope) and a marker for things to come.

So the work side of things will be fairly interesting over the next few weeks. We shall see.

Rest day

Having the day in Denmark. Recovering from the ride yesterday. That was a hard one.

Hitting the Japanese here today

Yesterday’s ride below:

Day 3 in Denmark

It was a hard day, for sure. 39 Km for me, but mostly over sand more than gravel.

We did make it to the hut.

And finally made it home.

I think after three days of riding, we are looking at a rest day tomorrow. Much needed.

Day 2 in Denmark

It’s still wet here 😀

But we still got a ride in. Definitely feeling the ache in my legs from yesterday. Actually did a longer ride than yesterday but easier. Or it would have been if not for the pain..

today’s ride starts

Rather wet

Apparently 51 mm rain yesterday. I’m sure we wore more than a few mm of that.

Today looks bleak – some warnings in the BOM website of flash flooding in the region. Most of the rain in the morning hopefully however so maybe another shorter ride in the afternoon will be possible.
