Alexander Muir Park

I’m a work in progress and so are my mountain bike skills (toddler level) and my video editing skills (at least I don’t need to use cellophane tape).

Behind the manicured gardens of Alexander Muir park, popular with wedding parties for photos, romantic picnics and solitary, contemplative walks, are some tennis courts and a lawn bowling green. And next to those are a nice little trail that runs along side a ravine and wraps around trees and under the Mount Pleasant Road bridge. The trail is mostly dirt and it’s quite a gentle ride so it’s perfect to practice my awful off road bike skills.

Enjoy!

Only 95 km away from beating last year’s kilometres cycled

And I’m going to ride past 1326 km this week.

That’s only an average of 13.57 km every day from tomorrow until next Saturday. No sweat, I’ve ridden that in week this summer. 

Last year it took me from April until December 2007 to ride 1326 km. That’ll mean I have another 3 month to ride my goal of 2000 km.

I’m hoping this winter will be mild so I can keep riding my bike throughout the winter.
