Marv’s July Bike Log


Dear Rouleurs,
July was an awesome month in the life of MMT. Team MMT’s newest member AJ, grew 5 cm and put on nearly 800 grams. The TDF 2016 was amazing race with so many highlights. Whilst the question of who would be the overall winner, Chris Froome, wasn’t in much doubt after the first week, each stage had its own special flavour.

So after a crappy June, MMT was seriously inspired by the SBS TV coverage. This resulted in very solid 700km effort, despite some truly ghastly weather. Changing a flat near Sandringham FC’s ground in the rain was new low point in my cycling experience and had me wishing for warmer and less windy weather.

Still I’ve passed 4,300 Km and I’m still about 780 Km ahead of my annual target. You see the details here.


Again I have no events planned for August, as I’ll be glued to the 2016 version of the La Vuelta and the Olympic road and track cycling.  Who knows may an Aussie will cash in and collect gold for the road race.

Until next blog, ride safe.
