It took 4500km and a whole lot of determination, but me and my bike did it. I'm officially the exact weight I want to be at. I lost 6-7 inches at the waist and can now ride 60km at 35km/h spend 2 hours assalting a single track, and ride 60km back at the same pace. My legs are killing me, but a few more weeks and that too will become easy. I also upped my cadence quite a lot today thanks to a worn gear. It actually got me to where I wanted to be faster, though it will take a little getting used to.
