From Silkeborg to Århus is roughly 45km, thats about twice the distance from Moesgaard and back, so in theory I could do the trip in 3½ hours, depending on the weather. The only trouble would be getting to Silkeborg, but I my Dad says he can drive me which would be way cheaper than taking the train. I'm not even sure if they'd even let me take my bike.
The real question is, could I do it? The Moesgaard trip, usually only undertaken when the weather is good, has a tendency to wipe me out, but only after I'm finished. If I did this trip, on a friday, when I'm not at work, and have the week end to recover any possible after effects, then theres nothing to hold me back but laziness or mechanical failure.
Betty (my bike) is due for some TLC soon, so I think I might just aim to push my limits, perhaps on friday 2nd Oct... All I have to do is think positive and hope the wind is in my favour. Given the fact that the wind is against me most mornings, which has strengthened my health, as I cycle to work in the opposite direction, coincidently along the last leg of the same stretch of road, then I might just get lucky and have the wind in my favour.
