Hot Hot Hot

I hope it cools down in Slovenia sometime before I get there a week from now. It’s going to be tough racing in these kinds of temperatures:

1000km

I passed the 1000km mark on my bike today, 77 days after buying it. The figure is based on my cycle computer’s odometer which I don’t always have clipped in, so I’ve probably gone a bit further than that. I was pretty pleased to be averaging 13km a day, until I realized my basic weekday… Continue reading 1000km

I haven’t been keeping quite such a close track – I think I started 13 years ago, back in 1994 (a Yellow course at Archerfield was my first competitive race) and I’ve raced on around 240 areas altogether, based on the maps I’ve got… Continue reading 1000

Equipment

Here’s how I’m getting GPS tracks for my recent orienteering races. I’m using a Navi GPS (£80) bought from Storage Depot, with an SD memory card (£15) to log the route. I download the data as NMEA sentences via a memory card reader and then convert it to GPX with GPS Babel, and then upload it… Continue reading Equipment

Altitude

48 hours from now (1022 CET on Sunday) I’ll be leaving the start line on Day 1 of Swiss O Week – six days of orienteering in the mountains high above Zermatt in southern Swizterland. I’m really looking forward to what should be a great week in the Alps. Days 1-3 and 6 are middle-distance… Continue reading Altitude
