Hey well done Brisbane. Over 7,500 riders got on their bike yesterday and showed their mettle by making it to the Gold Coast after a 60km or 100km pedal. Awesome work! Congratulations to Guy & Helen, Les, Michelle, Graeme, Kristy and Chappo. If I missed you let me know because getting your ‘useful fitness’ on deserves recognition. I have to admit it was pretty tough and I reminded myself again why specific training and the right refueling is critical to a good performance. I certainly could have done both of those better!
Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.
