On 29 Decem­ber 1928, Don Brad­man, Australia’s, and some say the world’s, great­est crick­eter, scored his first inter­na­tion­al test cen­tu­ry. It was against Eng­land at the Mel­bourne Crick­et Ground (MCG) in the third test of the 1928–29 Ash­es series*. Today, the annals of Aus­tralian sport­ing his­to­ry just saw anoth­er defin­ing first century.

Smash­ing the 60kms I com­plet­ed on 7 April, I pushed my lim­it out to 100 kilo­me­tres today, rid­ing from Bal­larat out to Beau­fort on the West­ern High­way, and then back again. I real­ly start­ed to feel it at about the 80km mark, and by the time I was done, I was done. Feels great now though!

I have since retired the bikeitinadress.org web­site as it is no longer need­ed and was cost­ing me mon­ey. I have copied the key arti­cles here.
