I haven’t posted any of my random, rambling musings recently. Here goes if anyone is interested. I haven’t cracked the best time I set way back in December, but I am generally well under 1 hour and 15 minutes, except if it is very wet. I put a new rear tyre on after this morning’s […]Read more "My MTB Journey 6 March to 5 April"
20 February Saturday morning. Just over 74 minutes 1.14.20. A step back from last week and the gains are still to be made in the first half of the circuit, I lost a bit of time in the second quarter. Its been an interesting week. Because I have been so assiduous in scanning the Covid […]Read more "MY MTB Journey Feb 20- March 4"
Saturday morning. 72 and half minutes. 1.12.37. Almost a minute and a half quicker than Thursday afternoon and only 13 seconds off my best time achieved back in mid December. Is this a sign my masterplan is bearing fruit? Maybe. However, my fuel intake yesterday didn’t go according to plan with a chocolate chip biscuit […]Read more "My MTB Journey February 13"
Thursday afternoon. 74 minutes flat 1.14.00. Forty seconds faster than Monday morning. I knocked off work a little early today and went out for a sneaky ride. I thought it was a bit cooler than recent days but by the time I got underway after dealing with a technical issue, it seemed to have warmed […]Read more "My MTB Journey 11 Feb"
Early Monday morning. 74 and a half minutes.1.14.41. Almost 2 minutes better than the other morning. Go figure. Still seven minutes better than the same day last year when my target was 80 minutes and I still haven’t managed that perfect ride that I have been working towards. I tried out an extra, helmet mount […]Read more "My MTB Journey 8 Feb"
Early Waitangi Day Saturday morning. 76 and a half minutes. 1.16.28, two minutes slower than last Saturday. Not sure what the story was this morning, I felt pretty strong. I did have to fiddle around opening and closing a gate which cost me some time and for the first time in weeks, I didn’t manage […]Read more "My MTB Journey 6 Feb"
Just under 75 minutes. 1.14.40. First ride in the park in the morning for a few weeks. I’ve been trying to get in two rides a week, but that’s not working well for me . Early mornings are my preferred time to hit the trails, because I have the place to myself and I enjoy […]Read more "My MTB Journey 30 January"
15 January, Friday afternoon. 77 and a half minutes or 1.17.25. Slightly better than the last ride, but still a long way off my target. Really hot and windy again, but the tracks are in good nick. It appears that the heat has as much to do with my times as the condition of the […]Read more "My MTB Journey 15 – 22 January"
Friday afternoon. 78 minutes, 1.18.07. This is my slowest effort for quite some time which is a bit disappointing and a bit of a setback. It’s been pretty wet for the last couple of days, it was raining up until a couple of ours before I went riding, and while I thought it had cooled […]Read more "My MTB Journey 8 January"
Monday 4th January. Hooray for Mondayised Holidays! Just a touch over 75 minutes. 1.15.07. Not too long ago I would have been happy with this time. The only saving grace is that its been raining off an on for the last few days so the tracks are a bit sloppy in places. On the positive side, […]Read more "MY MTB Journey 4 January"
