Last week:  71.05 kms

Maintenance week with nothing ahead to focus on. Race events in Tassie go quiet now for a while.
Couple of good vertical days up on the mountain accounting for 2,400 metres of the weekly total.
The week included a rest day, Wednesday.
But the highlight, or lowlight, was the gale force winds from Friday down at sea level. On the summit of Mt Wellington, wind speeds of over 120 kmph were recorded.
Winter is getting closer now with the need to be wearing several layers ( 3 on Sat) when heading up high. A chance of snow later this week, but unlikely to settle for long if it hits the ground. Late June into July is more likely.
