mt bike 1:48:00 [3] 30.0 km (3:36 / km)

Rushed day - 4 hrs bike Ed instruction getting kids up and riding and then a quick drive into town. Paired up with friend Louise to do Adelaide Bike Kitchen's "not a bike courier race." We had to head around the city and nearby environs finding things, doing things like riding the city pump track, and finally finishing at the ABK at Bowden. We were a little slow finding the "Crown & Anchor, ' as neither of us knew our hotels, but had heaps of fun and didnt kill any pedestrians, or get killed by moving trams. 4th overall.
Did some more kms afterwards returning to start.

Another school session along linear park, this time from outside my house into the city and a myriad of small excursions & extra loops. Paracombe PS this time.

Road Cycling 3:21:00 [3] 57.0 km (3:32 / km) +952m 3:15 / km

The TT ride was going via the hilliest route from Bal - Stirling so I did my own thing & met everyone there at 11.30 anyway.
Home - - Norton Summit (slow but felt gd) - Ashton (here the wheels fell off and i felt shite) - Mt Lofty - Stirling.
Return was mostly downhill - Crafers _ Summertown (caught up with a friend who runs Cafe 1195? there and had scrambled eggs for lunch & caught up on some gossip) - Uraidla - up to Woods Hill rd - Ashton - Norton Summit - home.

I've been offered a place in a new bikepacking event going Cape to Cape (with some detours) across North Is of NZ from mid Feb. Short at about 1200kms (17,000+ climb) but route mostly avoids towns, so need to sleep out a lot.
Can I do it one legged is the question, as knee not likely to improve by then.

yoga/pilates 45:00 [3]

Did this 2 hrs after returning from bike ride...not ideal as I felt stuffed.
Session was excellent as the reformer type exercises stretch & strengthen me in ways the bike doesnt. Will try to do more.

Road Cycling 5:29:00 [3] 104.2 km (3:09 / km) +838m 3:02 / km

Got dragged out by friends for a supposedly "flattish" ride to McClaren Vale.
Going up from Darlington along the Southern Expressway and then following the veloway is not my idea of flat! Although the initial climb is 9-10% it appears harder - perhaps the rough bitumen is slow?
Diverted via Hallet Cove and the beach to Glenelg on the way back.

Stopped in at Unley Museum which has a nice display on cycling - well worth a visit. Then did a scenic tour of Unley for about 6kms to take some photos.
Rode mostly 1 legged - cleat on R, flat pedal on L.
Bit dangerous as when i go over a bump my L foot flies off often, as I dont have id downwards enough to grip.
