I have just over 4 weeks to get myself fit enough to ride a bicycle 210km (132 miles) in one day. Now this is not something that has come as a surprise to me this is something that I booked and paid for over 4 months ago but have been ignoring ever since the cash disappeared from my bank account.
“Why would anyone choose to do something like this?” I hear you ask.
Well the simple fact of the matter is – it seemed like a good idea at the time, and it’s for a good cause. The ride itself is a yearly event and is quite popular with the cycling community in Melbourne. It exists to raise money to support disadvantaged children and their families.

So now all I have to do is A) retire to my secret lab and come up with a pill which will grant me mad riding skills or B) spend quite a few hours actually on my bike out in the real world. Given my limited knowledge of chemistry and low stock levels in my secret lab plan B is looking like the more beneficial option.
I just hope that mother nature has a kind heart. Please make the cold, rainy and windy winter days go away and please dial up a good number of warm windless days between now and the day after the event. Don’t punish me for my apathy, I beg you.
Failing that does anyone have access to a secret lab where they can design a pill to grant me mad riding skills? Let me know via the comments section below 🙂
