Longest Ride: Sat 24th / 161kms
4 months to goIt’s been a difficult month. My longest ride at 120km and then two weeks of a cold and now lockdown.
skill buildingYesterday I didn't have as much time to give to a longer ride, and after Saturday's 100k I wanted to work a bit on my stamina when it comes to inclines.
I had an initial goal in mind of 10 loops, after 3 rounds I got a little worried. After 6 loops I was concerned and after 7 I decided I'm too old to be that stubborn.
For just over 30km, I had an elevation gain of 520m. These little snippets will be important over the next 5 months.
In other news, I looked at the 16 week training program provided by the Bicycle Network - that's another post in itself.
5 months to go - launch of fundraising!I'm officially launching my fundraising page today. 5 months today I will be riding my longest ride ever, 210km as part of celebrating my 40th year, what is possible, and for an incredibly good cause.
I'll be challenging myself throughout the winter to grow my capacity, my fitness, my understanding of my body (fuel needs!), and learning more along the way about myself, my mental strength and the science/mechanics of cycling - and I hope making new friends along the way.

A journey in self-discovery. Ride on Traci! Proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone.
Huge amounts of respect from one who can't ride a bike. 😁

Go Traci! It will be a great achievement for you and of benefit to others in need.
Congrats on setting this goal for yourself. And it is a fantastic way to help charity; I had never heard of this before. I will donate again, as time allows.
