I started my day with a fast 50min MTB ride! I rode up from lower Woodstock through the streets over the M3 and then over De Waal drive. For the first time in ages I saw the Deer Park boom closed (not sure why)… I dodged under and headed up to the block house! I really enjoy that rode up to the block house its quick tough to ride due to the loose stones, I can actually run up there faster than I can ride. When I got to the top some chop had writen on the memorial plaque below the block house (dunno what possess’ people)… Anyways, the next part if my favourite, I turn around and chase down the hill, sliding through corners pushing hard and faster than before!
I got home and felt ready to tackle another day….. But oh wait Telkom’s network is fuct! Grrrr….. Anyways, its been a good day!
Road for 1h15 minutes at high intensity along much the same route as the 24th March.
Rode up to devils peak entrance, along the front road to Rhodes Memorial through the burnt hills, past Rhodes mem, past UCT tennis club, past nature conservation offices, up the hill to beakon below block house, run up to blockhouse with bike on back, then down the dirt road and back home.

Sport is a great way to unleash tension built up when sitting behind a computer screen in cyberspace all day. I have a tendency to build up extreme amounts of nervous energy and I need an outlet! I was a hyper active child who probably drove my parents crazy.
I started Mountain Biking when I went into High School after I had just turned 14 in 1994, which is almost exactly 13 years ago. I raced the South Africa Provincial and National MTB Circuit from 1994 – 1999 and my best achievement was Winning Provincial Championships in my Matric (Final year of school) year. I left school and had one more year (1999) of serious Circuit racing, before I gave the heavy racing a break.
