Life has been good to me, and I am happy with my lot - even if at times I don't show it. What more is there to say?

Loving the new Canyon and I think it likes me! Thanks +James Lee for showing me the light!

Managed some hill climbing today. Lots of hills climbed in fact. Why can't I live in Norfolk, or even Surrey 😂

Still, at least the itch that is Holme Moss is scratched for this year. Some nasty 20%ers out there today, and I'm sure a couple of short climbs were even steeper than that!

Boom! 2 challenges for the price of 1. 2016 miles in 2016 done and dusted. I also got another Strava badge for riding 1250km in one month (something else that is unlikely to be repeated).

3 Days, 3 rides. The Hell of the North now done. Doing the cobbles sorry pavé of Flanders and particularly part of the Paris to Roubaix route was never on the bucket list. I even managed an ungracious fall on the last day, when the front wheel slipped on some spilt diesel. Don't think I will be going back in such a hurry though!

But it's done and all in aid of a good cause. Just over 250 miles in 3 days. That is some personal achievement, even if I do say so myself.

2016 in 2016 Ride #50

AKA: Half-century up!

Unaccustomed as I am with bragging persistently about my rides, I thought I'd mention this one as it is the 50th ride this year that I have clocked up in my '2016 miles in 2016' personal challenge.

I'm 364 miles off of completing my personal goal, and with at least 260 miles being clocked up through my Wakefield to Roubaix challenge coming up this weekend (I'm not sure if I have ever mentioned this at all?) then by my calculations I should be done by next week.

It has been a slog, but I am fitter, a little slimmer and a tad lighter for doing it. Plus, with this mini-heatwave we have had in September I have managed to keep my holiday tan topped up - even if it is a 'cycling tan'.

Here's to the next 50 rides, even if they will be in the winter months!

I'm sure this is the first ever Challenge badge I've earned on Strava. Feeling quite please with myself also.

That moment when you realise that no matter what, if I was to turn around at this point and return home, it will be the most I've ever rode in one day.

And I'm not even at my halfway mark! Aiming for my first 100 (miles) today!
