I've been thinking, yes a dangerous think for me to do I know, about the Wilson HTM Brisbane to the Gold Coast Cycle Challenge.
Why or what have I been thinking you may ask? Well I'll let you know.
It all started when I firstly saw the promo literature for this ride and I thought, see there's that thinking thing again, what a good idea, I like to do that, and so it was that I took myself off to their web site for a look see, and was still thinking, though it was starting to hurt a litte by now, the thinking that is, what a good idea.
So the next step for me was to go and check out how much this will cost me (there's always an entry fee) and when I read to myself how much it was going to cost me for this privilege of riding a bike for one hundred k's I nearly fell off my bike, though I really wasn't on it at the time considering I was sitting in a chair in front of my computer but you know what I mean.
Seventy, that's right, seventy hard earned driving a taxi around at night in Toowoomba dollars. Well as you might have guessed I said stuff you Jack that's a bit on the ridiculous side way too much but then I went to work and got me to thinking, again, I'm telling you this thinking will be the end of me. I do get a t-shirt for my trouble and if I put away ten dollars a week (that's a small chips and Coke twice a week I don't need anyhow) between now and then and that will more than cover the costs. It's just when you say seventy all in one go it seems like a lot of money and still seems that way but I guess if you really want to do something then you'll find a way no matter the cost.
So it on your bike for me, I've got six months to get this sad old body into a good enough shape to do a hundred k's on a pushy.
Cheers and happy pushy biking
The trusty steed.
