46km Cycle
Distance:46.62 km
Avg Speed:23.9 km/h
Elevation Gain:448 m
God damn that was a difficult, and overall awful, ride. Lost the chain about three minutes in. Punctured at 12k - don't know how to fix a puncture so had my parents (who happened to be coming past) pick me up and take me to the bike shop. I am officially an embarrassment to being an adult.

Continued on after about an hour, then the winds started - hard, hard winds. From about 20k onwards I faced strong 30-40+km/hr winds, apparently gusting up to about 80km/hr according to the BOM.

So hard. Had to sleep this afternoon.
