    FANTASTIC 90.90 kms in 5½ hrs in glorious sunshine, with so many cyclists, e-scooters, walkers & fur babies. 🐶🐶

    Max speed 36.8 km/hr. Avg 16.6 km/hr. Calories used 3088.74

    This is the last ride of the Challenge, which brings my total to 1,200 kms ridden in October.

    I’m absolutely THRILLED & also for raising $3,083.32 (so far), which I could NEVER have done without the GENEROSITY of my sponsors.

    This morning I saw beautiful orange Koi fish in the river.

    (Koi or more specifically nishikigoi, are colored varieties of the Amur carp that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. Koi is an informal name for the colored variants of

    C. rubrofuscus kept for ornamental purposes).

    Plenty of nice reflections to photograph.

    A pleasant treat to have planes ✈️taking off, as I passed the airport.

    Beautiful lorikeets in the trees.

    A cyclist told me “nice back” as he passed me, referring to ‘Riding To Kick Cancer’s Butt’ written on back of my yellow jersey.

    I thought he said “nice butt” !!! This gave me a smile 😊momentarily, until I realised. 🤣🤣

    Optus Stadium is a multi-purpose venue that hosts AFL, cricket, soccer, rugby union, was opened on 21 January 2018.

    The Swan Bells are a set of 18 bells hanging in a specially built 82.5-metre-high copper and glass campanile in Perth. The tower is commonly known as The Bell Tower or the Swan Bell Tower.

    I enjoyed watching yachts, boats, jet skis, water skiers out enjoying themselves.

    A HUGE thank you again to all those who sponsored me SO GENEROUSLY. Very much appreciated for use by the Children's Medical Research Institute to carry on with their excellent work in finding a cure for Childhood Cancer. 🤗🥰😘

    Gorgeous 82.47 km ride in 5 hrs and popped in to visit my work colleagues for a chat and a much needed cuppa & biscuit.😋

    King's Park flowers are so pretty, likewise the magnificent view.

    Sea breeze on return ride. Max speed 38 km/hr.

    I enjoy looking at the swans, pelicans, bird life. The Old Swan Brewery I captured a seagull flying in the forefront.

    I saw a beautiful white egret with very long slim legs, but it was camera shy and flew off!😃

    I took bike on train from Gosnells-Perth-Greenwood.

    Absolutely glorious 75.17 kms, in 5 hrs.

    Max speed 38.7 km/hr. Meeting very kind people along the way, who took my photo of me wearing my new Superhero jersey, having reached $2,500. I'm feeling very proud wearing it knowing that if it wasn't for the GENEROSITY of all my sponsors, this wouldn't have been.

    Scenery breathtaking. A slight sea breeze.

    I could clearly see Rottnest Is. Yachts, tankards, surfers and windsurfers out in glorious🌞🌞.

    26 Oct 2021

    52.03 kms

    I had an afternoon ride in pleasant sunny conditions, explored a new cycle path just past Kalamunda Rd and then it suddenly came to an end!

    I did a "Contiki tour" through bushland and across Hillview Golf course onto Midland Rd to Bushmead. I didn't see any kangaroos, but some golfers were enjoying their game. I was ready for my meal when I got home, as I'd expended a lot of energy exploring. 😀

    I'm very happy 😀to have cycled 100.06 kms today in

    6 hrs 18 mins.

    Max speed 30.9 km/hr. Avg 15.8 km/hr. Calories used 3396.49.

    Spaghetti with my meal on Sat evening.

    After having a big breakfast 3 wheetbix, yogurt, fruit, boiled egg, spaghetti & banana, I took the 1st train at 0726 to Perth & then to Mandurah to start the ride, via Kwinana Freeway.

    I saw a BIG dugite 🐍slithering across the path. Captured a slightly blurred photo. I should taken a video. I had to be quick, as a cyclist approached. I also saw another dugite, but just it's tail end slithering into the bush.

    I saw and waved to 3 GCC cyclists. 2 wore the Superhero jersey and one said to me "Well done" pointing to his jersey and referring to mine arriving soon.

    I ate a health bar enroute, to top up blood sugar.

    Beautiful sunny weather, I became hot and sweaty. Minimal wind.

    Tempted to bathe my hot feet in the Swan river, but the slight breeze was cooling, as I pedalled along.

    I just HAD to capture 11 cute fluffy ducklings along the Canning River. Canoeists enjoying the weather. The next few days will most likely be raining, but this won't stop me getting out!😊
