Me & My Mum Tum stepped way out of our comfort zone this weekend. When you find it difficult to even get a ride in some weeks, entering a 🏁 seems like the dumbest/bravest thing to do off the back of little to no training. But I lined up. It hurt. It was hard. It was cold. I rode the same course as everyone else, and I'm sure not one person came off that course and said it was easy.
There's girls in B Grade that started riding bikes well after I did - I even remember them getting their first road bike and that are now placing top 3, who's fire and tenacity are inspiring & terrifying all at the same time. (Cam Cam THAT race face) I guess the point is, I did something yesterday that to ME was terrifying. I spent the first lap contemplating riding off into the bushes with a phantom mechanical... But I registered, I turned up, I pinned a number on, I brought my kid out in the rain - I was going to finish. And I did.
And if you ain't first your last, and that's ok. Because the girl out there wanted to be there, and she sure as hell was beating the girl she was sitting at home on the couch.
Here's an uninspiring photo of me riding the flat before the technical mud river section that makes it look like I'm infront of people, where as I'm actually about to get lapped. I Came dead last. But I never signed up to win - I signed up to prove to myself that I could. And that if I can do it, you can.
I don't want to be that girl watching from the sidelines anymore. I want to feel exhausted, happy, and like I achieved something amazing. I want to be part of that post race elation club - where your so dang exhausted happy that it's over and quietly high fiving yourself for not giving up.
Everyone's race is hard remember that... Wether it's your first time, or your hundredth time. Everyone lines up for the same reason, everyone is there for a good time. Thanks Port Adelaide CC for another ripper #pacccx

I love this city

Ok so the rain has just arrived along with a pretty spectacular light show // which means one thing ... Ergos R Back πŸ˜•πŸ˜‘ - favourite tunes to get you fired up when the weather is πŸ’©?!

Where the dark comes to meet the light, the constant turn of the pedals, and the elements brushing against your face... It's The sound of the world wrapping its arms around you... To share that feeling with her, is absolutely priceless. Our @thule #thulechariotsport from @goactiveoutdoors #goactiveoutdoors is seriously a godsend for me so I can get out during the day with G πŸ™πŸ»βœ¨πŸ˜

There where 3 in the bed + the big one said "rack off & give me some space " πŸ˜‘

When women come together AMAZING things happen. I Had such an awesome morning with these ladies at an all women's skills (except for @chapman432 πŸ™Š)
session ran by the awesome PACC - learning new skills, meeting new people, being guided by some of the best riders in the field was awesome. Seriously so stoked. Even took 2 dirt naps on the same corner πŸ˜‚and then had a rather ungracious slow motion completely avoidable finalΓ¨ fall in front of everyone the end (LEL @camilla_nicole_ ) 10/10 loved it. And I also might add, I was completely anxious leading up to it, not scared, just well ... anxious. But it's the only way to get better ... and we were all there for the exact same reason.

Morning rides with my Gracie.
Being able to share my passion for cycling with my daughter is so special – my two loves together!
My little lady was having the time of her life this morning being towed around in her new @thule Chariot Sport Trailer from the team at @goactiveoutdoors - lucky duck! #BringYourKids #Thule #ThuleChariotSport

The greatest teacher I've ever had.

The last time I rode montecute I barely made it to corkscrew, I bawled at the top & cried the whole way back down navigating the turns with blurred vision and the tearful sting of self defeat...I was pregnant and yet to find out, all I knew i was exhausted and my legs barely turned the pedals. I was so frustrated, so upset with myself.
Today I rode the loop again all on my own.... And it didn't suck half as much as I thought it would - proud of myself and proud of the direction I'm heading it's gotta be [ u p ^ ] from here right?!
