Bloody (Beautiful) Rain


Well the riding has been seriously slowed due to incessant rain. It has rained for 5 straight days now with showers still on the forecast!

Green where it was brown 1 week ago

This hasn't stopped me completely but where I was on track to hit my 1000km goal on perhaps Monday, here I am on Thursday still stuck on 880km. This is partly due to the fact that spare parts finally turned up for my broken Habit and it suddenly became a mad rush to get myself organised for a mtb trip to Tasmania. A trip that I honestly didn't think I would be going on due to a busted bike.


But here I am, sitting in Launceston, waiting for the other 4 guys to arrive on their Jet* flight. We will then head for the newly hallowed mtbing lands around Derby in Northeast Tassie. Here I hope to crank up the kilometres as best as I can. Dirt is much harder to rack the k's up on but at least I will be earning those donations!
Anyway, here's hoping my next post will be from Derby!(subject to standby travel....)

Cheers

  1. Funny how quick the rains turn the grass green.

    Have fun on your trip. I am looking forward to seeing some pics in your follow-up post.
