    Well that's my main challenge for June completed!

    Ditchling Devil Audax - 129 miles @ 14mph, 6,975 feet of elevation gain. SW London to the coast and back via seemingly every possible big hill.

    That was really tough, very warm day and think I got dehydrated as really struggled on the third quarter and had to take a long cake/water break (the cakes were epic!). Nothing left in my legs for the climbs so had to crawl up the later hills and make up time on the flat'ish sections.

    Was supposed to be 127 miles but thanks to Garmin taking me on a couple of detours it turned it into a new PB for me. Happy to get any new PBs at my advanced age. :smile:

    Here's a link if anyone is interested, brilliantly organised event and the route takes you through beautiful countryside.

    Had a quiet start to the week recovering from my big ride, very sore bum and exercise induced asthma. :(

    Tail end of the week got in a couple of 20+ rides and a nice 50+ mile circuit in perfect weather taking in a couple of local climbs (in the Surrey Hills A.O.N.B.).
    Combe Lane https://www.strava.com/segments/8161359
    Staple Lane https://www.strava.com/segments/628859

    99.8 miles for the week (If I had known I would have taken a little detour to make it a round 100 !!)

    229 miles for the month so far.

    Got in 13 miles of commuting around town today, but my legs are feeling a bit dead from too many consecutive days of running (60 miles this week), riding, and a stomach bug that has been crushing me me all week. Likely going to rest from the bike for 2 days then do some longer rides once I'm back in Florida later this week.

    6/1 - 33 miles
    6/3 - 17 miles
    6/5 - 31 miles
    6/6 - 11 miles
    6/7 - 11 miles
    6/8 - 7 miles
    6/10 - 11 miles
    6/11 - 13 miles
    6/12 - 13 miles

    Total: 147 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 353 miles

    2016 Races:
    Gran Fondo Florida Century - March - 23.1 mph avg on TT segments (draft legal)
    Ironman 70.3 Florida - April - 2:39 / 21.0 mph (no drafting)

    Ironman 70.3 Augusta - September
    Ironman Florida - November

    Such a busy weekend didn't get a single ride in!!

    looking good squeaky- such a great accomplishment!!!

    @Tweaking_Time- will do, they are thinking about doing it again next year. They had so much fun. Somewhere one of the towns they had a beer run after getting to the camp. It had a great big hill and a Walmart at the bottom. One guy had his brakes smoking to get turned... They laugh and laugh about that.

    A lot of good miles posted by all

    Mon 13 - 20.00 Another miserable autumnal ride in this morning - cold & wet with strong headwind, really dispiriting. Conversely, the ride home was dry, much warmer (had to stop to divest some clothing, having dressed for this morning's weather) and replete with PRs and near-misses on Strava.

    Total for MTD - 195.4 miles, target 360. YTD: 455.4

    Last June is going to be hard to beat. Last June, we spent 3 weeks in summertime in Canada cycling and hiking etc. etc. This June, we'll be in the depths of winter here in Tasmania.

    However, I will make an attempt to get somewhere close to last June in terms of time or distance ... or both if I can manage it. :)

    June 2 - 45 min cycling indoors on my trainer

    June 4 - 77.7 km (260 min)

    There's a major storm coming. They've been advertising it for days now ... supposed to roll in this evening. So we set off relatively early (11 am) in order to get this ride in before the storm arrived, and yet late enough so that the frost would have melted off the roads.

    It was about 10C where we live when we set off, and climbed up the Southern Outlet. That's about a 12 km climb and by the time we got to the top, we were both overheating because we had dressed for cold. I figured I'd be shedding clothes as soon as we got to the bottom of the descent.

    But when we got to the bottom of the descent, it was indeed cold ... it had dropped to 8C and then down to 7C while we were riding. That was combined with a little breeze and heavy mist all the way out making it feel quite chilly. I was wishing for winter cycling boots! My toe covers weren't quite up to the job.

    We turned around and fortunately the mist/drizzle stopped, and what little wind there was dropped off to practically nothing.

    We had thought about stopping for lunch, but opted to just keep riding back home instead. A hot shower and coffee were calling! So we kept cycling back to Hobart and then up and over Bonnet Hill.

    Our elevation profile shows one big climb at the beginning, then almost flat, and then another big climb at the end. Variety!

    Happily, we did the ride within randonneuring time. Mission accomplished!

    There were a number of cyclists out there today ... all bundled up and looking rather cold. So we weren't the only ones.

    Weekend adventures ...

    June 4 - 77.7 km cycling (260 min)

    June 5 - 2.8 km (20 min) running on treadmill!! Go me!! I usually reserve running for chasing buses and things like that!! :grin:
    3.6 km (40 min) walking on treadmill.
    1.5 km (10 min) rowing

    I'm back!! I was madly studying for a final exam worth 50% of my mark. Thankfully, that is done now! There will be a long wait to find out how I did, but at least the course is finished and I've got a month till the next one starts. With only full-time work to do (instead of full-time work + a grad course), I am hoping to get more cycling in. :)


    June 12 - 40.2 km cycling (125 min)

    June 13 - 47 km cycling (148 min)
