Hi Strava type people,
The Ride Hard to Breathe Easy Strava Challenge starts on April the 1st, and will be running until the 30th April, and hopefully happening globally. For those who don't know Karen Munro's story, after being diagnosed with lung cancer, Karen decided to kick off RHBE by riding the 800km from Melbourne to Adelaide in January 2011.
The idea of the challenge though is to log your rides in strava for the month of April, and equal or better Karen's awesome distance. Yes, there are some of us who could ride this distance in a few days, so set yourself a larger target!
It's free to enter, and there are a variety of prizes to be won.
Keep the rubber side down,
(and before the Captain Obvious's out there point it out, I am the Hubbard King, so I don't use strava, nor do I even have a basic computer on any of my bikes anymore, but I do love riding my bikes, and it does not stop me from sharing something awesome like this!)
Apparently Roger, that's also part of being a hubbard, being friendly, waving and smiling to other cyclists! You will have to stop that behaviour immediately!
No offence to you Smudge I just wanted to express my strong feelings.
Although not in this thread, the term is often used on A/C as a generalised derogatory slur .
I know you, like myself, embrace the diversity of cycling.
and I thought you were joking Roger! Hubbards of the world unite. Give us a wave and we will wave back...
Given that Karen Munro died as a result of her lung cancer I believe that it is pretty poor form that this post has turned into a 'joke fest'. I would have thought that a little more respect for this charming, unassuming and quiet achiever might be more appropriate. It was a pleasure to have know her.
I don't think any levity here reflects a lack of respect for anyone least of all Karen. Most of us cyclists are a friendly, inclusive and relaxed group and I doubt she would take offence. Have you joined the challenge Derek?
Woot!!!! DM me your address I'll send you a prize for being ranked in first place!!!
Yep, Rank 178 a few hours later, guess that kinda counts as a bit of a "15 minutes of fame" :-p
Alright, managed to get out on the bike myself today, but nowhere near what Karen would have done, but at least we got out for gelati, Gilles St markets, and Roller Derby, so a nice days commuting has been had.
