I don't know what to be more excited about for March ... the upcoming State Election (anyone seen any bicycling related election promises?) or Tas Bike Week (which in true Tasmanian style will be running for a week and a half). Given that Bike Week has my own Acton MTB Rogaine event tucked in it, I think I'll go with Bike Week.
Due to Bike Week, the calendar this month is absolutely overflowing with rides and riding related events and I won't try and recount them all, just go and check out the Tassie Trails Events Calendar or go direct to the Bike Week website and see for yourself.
Looking out a bit further in the calendar, entries have just opened up for the Hellfire Cup (20-23 November, and I also noticed the first hint of a date (25 May) for the Icebreaker Multisport up in Launceston ... which I'm proud to announce (subject to the date being confirmed) Kim and I have agreed will be where we lock horns and compete man vs woman to see which of us can beat the other, and more importantly in my case, beat the cut off times. If ever you've wanted to enter a solo multisport event with the knowledge that someone will be finishing after you ... this could be your moment.
Also excited to see that Hobart Bushcare is running a few track building/maintenance days for the Tip Top Track near South Hobart and I'm hoping to get along to the first of these.
Still it's a good time of year to ride, and the photo above is from a recent weekend ride down around Southport Lagoon ... which is my way of reminding people that you don't need a race to go for a ride ...
