August and the odometer reads 6,795 kilometres. My goal for the year is to ride (and run) 12,000 kilometres.

Late nights watching the Tour de France and early winter mornings riding to work left me feeling fragile and weak. Yet I could not deny myself of either of these joys.

My favourite image of the Tour – a blessed Simon Gerrans in the golden fleece followed by his Orica GreenEDGE team mate Simon Clarke.
