2019 - 365 Day Charity Ride - Christopher Swan
Back in the day (last year) I used to think Sunday was a rest day, you can’t ride after a hard long day on Saturday. My legs were often still tired on Tuesday !!
Then on the 1st Jan 2019 with a slightly foggy head sitting on my trainer in a cold NY I decided it would be good to ride every day of the year for charity, specifically Prithipura Communities in Sri Lanka.
218 days later I am surprised how the mind if not always the legs recover... most of the time.
The year to date statistics are
14 270 km - can’t recommend the custom fit Passoni enough for this job.
80 842 m of climbing, which is really surprising
Average speed of 31.3 kph
Average 61.7 km/day
3 Sets of tyres (not that much actually)
I've lost 2kg in weight despite eating really quite a lot and the legs well they are simply always sore and pretty tired !! But the mind is very willing and wonders occasionally if I will ever stop. We will see on Jan 1st 2020
So far we have raised nearly $2000 for Prithipura Communities and all donations are very much appreciated, thanks to everyone for their support. You can donate through the link below… 147 days to go with a 22 000km target.
