I survived...just!

I participated in the Brisbane2Ipswich Challenge yesterday.
It's a 50km bike ride from Brisbane to Ipswich.
I've decided it's way too far! LOL

My SIL Manda talked me into some months ago and me, always up for a challenge I said "Yes". Seriously, what was I thinking??
We ride to do some excercise, as I quite like bike riding, but that was something else! A great ride, but the pain...Oh my lord!
Burning thighs is not something I want again in a hurry!

The ride raised money for the Royal Children's hospital here in Brisbane. Manda works for one of the major sponsors...Brodies. So we rode in that team.

I was very happy to see that finish line, I can tell you.

Here's some pics...
Me looking confident, very early on Sunday morning.

Our first pitstop.

After we crossed the finish line.

It was fun, but exhausting weekend!
It's one of those "things" I can tick of my lifetime list!

Chat soon,
