Pedaling hard to pay it forward!After many years of being inspired by my brother Berrick (founder of the Chain Reaction Challenge Foundation), I have finally signed on to ride this year’s CR Womens 300 on the Gold Coast in November. I’m equal parts utterly terrified and totally pumped for the experience.
YOUR ACTIVITY TRACKING
TOTAL DISTANCE TRAVELED
We have broken the back of it!Last week we tackled some big hills (well they were definitely challenging for the majority of us). Somewhere on the way out to Woop Woop (possibly Warrandyte or what felt like Warburton) I made the silly mistake of saying how lucky it was that none of our team had been injured during our training program. Far from it, we were all getting stronger and faster week after week. Well that off the cuff remark must have annoyed the cycling gods and not a day later, I was laid up with a lower back problem!
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right?Well a few weeks into our training with Dave McKenzie and both our timeclocks and our body clocks are beginning to adjust. For a recreational cyclist with the luxury of time, I must admit I have always been a ‘pro hours’, fair weather rider.
Do it faster, makes us stronger
More than ever, hour after hour
Work is never over
