I completed Challenge 7 on 10-11 October 2015 when I rode from Sydney Olympic Park to Windsor and back. It was an early start as I was doing the ride on my own. The alarm went at 4am and I caught the 4.56am train from Artarmon to Olympic Park. Riding out with the rest of the participants was pretty good and the ride out to Windsor was a pretty enjoyable ride. I had my first experience of being swooped by magpies (twice) when I was riding around the block to tick the speedo over the 100km mark for day 1 and then after a quick shower I caught the train back into town to watch the opening game of the A-league season. I got back to my tent at 11.30am and when I finally got back on the bike at 6.30am (after changing an overnight flat tyre!) I rode the 111km back to Olympic Park. The weather was pretty good. It was hot out there towards the end of each day's riding but it was a good test to prepare me for the 14 days of back to back riding I'm going to be doing for challenge 12 in a few months.....
