I achieved my first half-century today, logging 50 kilometres on my way out to Creswick and back to Ballarat. The ride was very scenic, and the smell of eucalypts made for a strenuous but altogether very enjoyable day out.
This wasn’t just the longest bike ride I’ve ever undertaken (so far) in terms of distance, but also time in the saddle, hitting almost three hours’ riding time.
Although I’m really quite sore tonight, I’m also rapt to have hit that milestone so early in the month, and hopefully I can push it out to 60 by the end of April.

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.
