    Sub 40 minutes for 12 miles....

    riding back from the cake stop today I finally a managed to do the 12.02 miles in under 40 minutes since my operations. ( the 0.02 is important)
    and I managed the 3 big hills around here back to back on Sunday

    Both the wrist and the knee feel great and so...

    Time to go and get that ticket to Australia for an extended tour around the coast, with a few detours inland for the sights of course. Just in time to get away from another northern hemisphere winter.

    Pack up the bike and trailer and get on the road of fun again and no more road to recovery.

    It's too late in the pm for me to go working out what that means in km/hr, but when you do your trip 'downunder', and you're nearing Adelaide, give a yell

    Hope you are feeling fit-That 27kph was probably towing the Bob Trailer and up a gentle rise of about 12% in the Peak district.

    Well done on getting back so quick George but the best riding in the UK is done in January- offroad.

    Kudos on a speedy / effective recovery. And, YES, by all means take that trip!
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    It may seem a fast recovery to others, but to me it has been a lifetime.

    and no Stap, this time there was no BOB trailer, so europa is quite safe :-)

    Both the endurance and the speed work are going well now, I know I'll never be as fast as I was a few years ago,, but that was part of the recovery process, Understanding the new limits.

    cheers

    No he's not, I can't average 27km/hr WITHOUT a trailer

    Actually mate, when you get into planning your trip, head off to my other favourite forum, bicycles.net.au It's an aussie bike forum, we've got members all over the country and the feel is pretty much like this place (only it's full of youngsters ). You should be able to make contacts wherever you happen to go.

    Congratulations, while I have occasionally broken the 4 minute mile on as much as a 12 mile run - with the wind at my back I have yet to equal your feat.

    thanks for the info on the forum, I am looking at couchsurfer's too. loads of aussies on there.

    I have a couple of offers of places to stay already, in Noosa and Cairns.

    Getting exciting now, I love this part of touring, the planning, and looking at maps and making contacts, getting tickets everthing.
