Hammer Time

I just wanted to give you guys a little look at some Hammer products I got last week. I think the bottle of Hammer Gel is a great idea and you can get these little gel bottles that fit into your pocket. The Gel bottle holds 150ml of gel in each bottle, so the equvilant of 3 or 4 normal packets of gel. Heaps better then a hand full of empty gel packets in your back pocket after a long ride. I will give you a run down on the products next week. Happy training

Friday Ride

During the week i decided that i would ride from Brisbane back to the Sunshine coast. I had no expectations of doing any Records but because i didnt have a lift up the coast on Friday arvo it was a good excuse to get on the bike and ride. I had most of the guys at work calling me an idiot crazy and so on but this only made me want to do it more. At 12 o'clock i got on my bike and headed for the boondal wetland bike paths. By the first Km i was roasting, it was a cool 34 degrees and with a good 4hrs or so on the bike it was going to be hot.

My plan was to stay away from the Highway so i headed straight up to Redcliff then on to Anzac Av and then got onto Deception bay rd over the Bruce Highway onto Old Gympie rd then started heading North. I rode along Morayfield rd onto Beerburrum rd then onto Steve Irwin way. I ended up at the Ettamoga Pub in just after 4hr and 30 mins and 120 km under the belt , not bad considering i was riding into a head wind most of the time.

A bit more exciting news i picked up a sponsorship with Hammer Nutrition. [Epic]

On your Bike

Second week on the bike after the holidays and everthing is going very well. As i do most of my training on the SS, I decided over the holidays I wouold up the gearing from a 34/15 to a 34/14. This morning I did my 46km ride into work and in favourable conditions knocked 7 mintues off my time. [ Stoked ]

I am not sure if doing the majority of my training on my SS will pay off but I guess I will fing out at the Dusk til Dawn. With the likes of Bellie, Russell and Matt Dog planning on doing the race I have my work cut out for me.
