This year we have a new target. 160km. Rosebud and return to Alexandra gardens. Just under a year ago I had my accident which took me off my bike for over 10 weeks. With help from my friends, a physio and my own rehab at the local pool I was back on my bike for christmas day.
I have been working my way back, increasing my distances. I did a 150km ride to Lancefield in winter.. man that was chilly.
Sunday is looking rather windy... and unfortunately its not going to be a tailwind home. 80km of resistance training!
Have been doing some work on the froglets quilt... only a few more long seams to go.

So I had a quiet day, had lunch with some friends and family and then had another small dinner with some family and friends at a new local Vietnamese place which was really good.
I went for a cheeky ride the other day, the sun was out so I didn't put long legs on.... was able to wear my new velosocks.
The fisherman/mamil bought me some new wheels. For the non cyclists out there.. these ARE the bomb! I'm really happy with them and he did a great job to surprise me.
my quilting buddies surprised me even more, they had bought me a gift voucher from my local bike shop. Then the shop had a sale! I scored big time with shoes, sunnies and new knicks.Some of you have figured out that I often can be seen with odd socks on. The noisy one bought a heap of new nail polish.. I couldn't decide on a colour!And finally from the vegie patch... a MASSIVE cauliflower, modelled here by the froglet!

The noisy one is on her first placement in aged care, she seems to be enjoying doing 'nursing' rather than reading about it.
I'm also about to join the 50 club! eekkkkk.

I know that many locals were not happy about the event due to the road closures, I was very surprised at the amount of closures that we had (I was not upset personally, it was great having no cars up my butt). The event went so well and we didn't want for anything, we had challenging hills and the last 25kms were the hardest of the entire 100km event.
Tomorrow we are off to Euroa for ride the ranges..... my bestie and I did this last year, but only did the 85km route.... tomorrow we tackle the 130km... and we are taking with us another 8 people!!
I usually ride and think about those who have served our country and those still protecting us.
LEST WE FORGET.
