It has taken nearly 16yrs but I have reached another kilometre-stone. Even found an appropriate Village welcoming sign to celebrate.

This cycling malarkey is a funny old game.  After my DNF at the Chevy Chase last week (felt a bit rough right from the start; very windy and cold; very hilly route) I went back to my usual North Yorkshire DIY yesterday.  Perfect cycling weather, it was quite chilly for the first hour but soon warmed up into a nice sunny day.  Gentle breeze, which was behind me for the second half. 

Strangely enough I did the route in my second-fastest time, the fastest was also in May a year ago.  Maybe this is my best month for cycling.  A year ago I used a vintage Kingcycle recumbent, yesterday a new VeloMotion framekit built up with a very comfortable carbon hardshell seat and various parts from the bike shed.

With only a single 300 calendar event planned for March, and not until the 23rd, I didn't want to risk a DNF or DNS scuppering my RRtY. So went out today and did a DIY 200 from Amsterdam to Sittard. Assuming that it validates OK, that's month 9 done. Tempted to schedule a 200 for 2019-04-01, but it's awful close to a 300 on the 6th, don't want to risk over doing it and ruining the 300...

Also puts me at 19 points. Wondering if I can make the Randonneur 5000 medal this season...

My 300 calendar event DNF in March buggered my Dutch RrtY, but my AUK one is still going from DIY's. I managed a DIY 200 in April, and a DIY 200 on 2019/05/01. I have just 1 ride needed to complete my first RrtY, which is June. I'm hoping I've recovered enough from RatN that I can do a 200k DIY on the 1st of June.

A RRtY with the RAtN in the middle would be amazing.  Not least for the acronyms. Seriously though, doing anything after that RaTN ...... chapeau
