Life on the Road – Week 14

The purpose of this series of posting is to summarise my week on the bike and exercising in general.  My week runs from Thursday to Friday, so Week 14 for 2010 is from April 2, 2010 through to April 8, 2010.

738.94 km for the week;  
4,474.08 km for the year.

Total weight loss for 2010: NA

BikeJournal Rankings:

  • Australian Cycling Forums Club – 10th. Gained three places in the rankings.
  • BikeJournal overall ranking – 76th. Gained 25 places due to being out touring.

Back riding properly. Spent most of the week touring between Esperance and Kondinin which has helped my numbers at last :).  Weekly average is 319.58 km a week. Would like to get back up to 400 km a week by year end.

On the weight front, I started the year in a less than healthy position at 103 kg. As I was on the road, I couldn’t weigh in. My target for the month end is 98 kg.

On I have achieved my short term goal of getting back into the top 100.  Now shooting for the top 50.

In respect to the Australian Cycling Forums Club at I have now got back into the top 10, so maybe the top 5 is a possibility.

Sunday, April 4, 2010 108 km on the bike 
0 km running
Salmon Gums to Peak Charles: Turned out to be a fairly tough day of riding as the map we where using was incorrect. Meant a fair bit of back tracking on gravel roads. Most of today was on gravel roads/tracks.

0 km running
Peak Charles to Norseman: Approximately 56 km on gravel roads/track and the balance on bitumen.

Norseman to McDermid Rock: All gravel road riding today but the road was in very good condition. All up a good solid day touring.
Wednesday, April 7, 2010 131 km on the bike
0 km running
McDermid Rock to Forrestania Plots: All gravel again today with the road deteriorating in the later stages. Minimal data as I didn’t save the data properly it seems. Thankfully I had made some notes.
Thursday, April 8, 2010 135 km on the bike
0 km running
Forrestania Plots to Kondinin: Finished off the last of the gravel road (~ 21 km) before diverting to Wave Rock and then on to Hyden and then again a small side trip to Kalgarin. Finally I settled into the push into Kondinin.
