Today I am blogging about my recent trip to Tour Down Under. I went with a wonderful group of people from in Brisbane. Our group was from MB Cycling.
Marcel Bengston was the boss. Tammy and Kath were support extraordinaire. Our wonderful wonderful Ride Captains were Deb Aitcheson, David Shelberg and John Kimlin. I rode 532kms in the week and climbed 7395m.
I had no mechanicals and no flat tyres.
I came home with no injuries.
I loved the company, the riding, the food and the scenery.
I rode with a beautiful bunch of people. The scenery was beautiful.I loved the bikes. I saw my hero Cadel Evans! I enjoyed the company. I think Lynne James is AMAZING! I sang with some very talented people. What I learnt was :
- I don’t like high sugar electrolyte drinks and bars. They disagree with my tummy and I need to find a more healthy raw way of fuelling for nutrition on rides.
- I am a good rider with good skills. I am not a fast rider.
- Everyone gets tired and has the potential for injury if they do not look after themselves and recover properly.
- David Tucker hurts sometimes……..
My Best moment was climbing the back of Checkers Hill and not getting off until I crossed the top of the hill! Thank you to Marcel, Kath, Tammy, Deb, John and Deb for their amazing support and organisation. Thank you to my fellow riders for a wonderful week. I look forward to seeing you all on the road again soon.
