My experience at the event:

And so I reached 7 consecutive 94.7 Cycle Challenge and got my green number. 7 years of riding (with Curtis) up and down and around Johannesburg under (mostly) the sun, with an old MTB or, in the past 3 years, a cheap cycling bicycle.

This year was the second on the new, and more challenging, course, but at least Curtis did not have the awful issues with his shoulder he had last year, so we managed to ride together just until the end, when I left him a minute behind on the last long hills (but his lack of fitness and his hernia sure did not help!)

I finished in 4.14, a decent result (still 30 minutes away from the 3.46 on the previous course), and then we celebrate in style at Hooters!
