28 October. Wednesday afternoon, again a touch over 76 minutes. 1.16.20. I’m pretty pleased with the time given it was only 2 seconds off my best effort. It was quite warm and windy today.
After Saturday, I had identified that there were opportunities improving my time in the first half of the ride, which I duly achieved. On the other hand I was a minute or so slower in the second half of the circuit today. I put it down to a few hard climbs into a steady breeze.
When I can put a complete effort together I’m confident I can hit my self appointed target. Hopefully I can hit it before my knee blows apart. Then what? I plan to increase the distance and start riding elsewhere. Perhaps the new trails between Paeroa and Thames and then have a crack at the rail trails in the South Island
