Since I started keeping track of my biking, I have ridden 1432 km.
I finished the virtual Camino de Santiago in Spain.
Then I biked the Great Ocean Road in Australia, then the Alps to Ocean in New Zealand.
Now I am doing the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia.
At the same time, I am walking the Ring of Kerry in Ireland.
The app is really good for keeping track of everything.
I will have to take a couple photos of my medals when I hang them up!
So, I have biked 151km in the 2 past weeks.
For my Virtual Challenge, this is where I would be in Spain if I was really biking it.
It looks like a lonely road.
So, the last 10 years or so, I have wanted to do the Camino de Santiago. Not walking though. I would rather bike it.
Time, money and fitness level at the moment would prevent me from doing it but I saw The Conqueror Event Series and thought I would try the Camino virtually.
So, today I sign up.
I downloaded the apps and I am ready to start tomorrow.
If you are interested: it is HERE.
There are other Challenges: Hadrian's Wall, Inca Trail, English Channel, Alps to Ocean, Great Ocean Road, Grand Canyon, Length of the UK, Route 66, The Appalachian Trail.
It looks like I picked one of the longer ones!
I start in virtual Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France.
Bike Ride 2011
In August of 2011, my daughter, her friend and myself did a bike ride around the Greater Niagara Circle Route. Quite an accomplishment for me. It was fun.....ish.
Canal Days and A River Drive
If anyone is interested, this is the video of the bike ride that my daughter, her friend and I made around the Niagara Region a few years back.
