What a great thing a goal is

Since deciding to do the SM1200 I have really been enjoying my riding and have been doing quite a lot of it.In June I managed 801km for the month which has been my highest monthly mileage so far since reduxing.

The last couple of days have been quite windy, with strong gusty south westerlies. In the past wind has really ruined my rides but this weekend I've taken the opportunity to get to know it a little bit better and have down about 130km riding into it. Apart from the wind chill, it's really just a matter of finding the right gear, getting into a low comfortable position and adjust to slightly slower progress.

Next weekend I'm going to travel up the Waitara to "Do the dog Trap" 200km brevet organized by Bec and Howard. Should be a great ride!

Mileage in Kms = 2949
