Today I tried my first attempt at Fast 2. I didn’t expect to last until Christchurch but managed to stick with it until Preston Point Road. The small hill was enough to get me gapped enough that I was dropped. Still managed to make it back to the raffles with my fastest Thursday time so more than happy with that. Up until when I got dropped I had an average speed of 39.5 kp/h

Today was the perfect morning to be out on the bike. Blue sky and not a cloud in the sky.First ride in a week so was not really up to it today b ut only way to get back into the groove is more kms. I signed up to the Golden Spokes on the 5th November so I have to get my kms up.
Simple things such as putting in a good effort on Burke drive. Legs hyelling at you then you glance at your speed and your doing 51.5kph. Then there is a gap of around 20 -30 meters and it is you who have to pull the train behind you back. I managed to pull it off but once i got to the wheel of the two in front i was done and had to back it of a few kms and let the train pass. They didn’t get away.
