Day One

1% done. 99% to go.

The weather was rather pleasant with sunshine and a very moderate wind, for a change. The best biking weather I have had this year.

I was very pleased with My first day efforts as I am trying to ease in to it.

150 km

Start 9am, finish 2:07pm

Total time 5h 7m, riding time 5h 4m, off bike time 3m

Average riding speed 29.5km/hr

I was surprised by a visit from our friends and former support crew Ernie & Fritz. They began their 1000km Challenge with a quick photo on the side of the road. Thank you for joining our efforts on behalf of MCF.
