Bump, going to be a cracker of a day by the looks
edit........................Donny, Chuck has gone quiet
yes. i noticed that also. I will refrain from name calling (ie soft) till atleast sat night
The "Big dude" is being conspicuous by his abscence as well"
I suspect they've been quietly training under the strava radar so as to smash us on Mangrove Mtn and all the other climbs.
Take it easy on them Tim!
Had a 114kms today, was hoping to come along tomorrow but I think I've got to get some better climbing legs to cope with these epic challenges!
Thanks for another awesome epic Don, Spiz and Tim!
Some of the highlights for me were...
- The ride out to Wisemans was awesome. Nice and scenic, not much traffic and cool air.
- The climbs were challenging, but not ridiculous. Spiz and Don would disappear into the distance and wait patiently at the top.
- There were some cool descents, eg Mt White etc.
- Had some good, much needed stops at Wisemans, Mangrove Mtn, Brooklyn.
- Riding along the rivers was really nice
- I've never ridden up that way before so it was good to explore
- Good company for the ride
- Only one puncture for the day and no mechanical issues
There were really only a couple of negatives...
- Me slipping on the stairs like an IDIOT at the Wisemans Ferry cafe nearly ending my day there and giving me back pain for the rest of the ride.
- The heat made the larger climbs v. hard work
Oh, and some of the details that Tim shared about his digestive system
Dito Chris, top day out,but glad to be home, i struggled in the heat today, and got dropped on every climb , but the heat did not relent and seemed to affect me, having said that, i had a blast except for a tyre blowout at 45 kph ,i think Spiz might have done a little wee in his nicks as he was behind me .
and thats another tick for the bucket list
uh oh the lovely wife bought me 2 litres of ice cream
Nice work chaps
thanks guys, what an awesome day. Probably a bit crazy to do a 200km ride in that heat but we drank heaps and rested alot so all good. Lost count of the amount of times i refilled my water bottles and the amount of cold drinks i bought from the shops
I think we got really lucky with the wind, i dont recall really having a headwind at any point in the ride , and the section from mangrove mountain to brooklyn (about 40km) just seemed to fly by, awesome fun . We had a good day, we didnt break the bikes and we didnt crash and we made it back home safely, thats a good day in my books
Pretty happy with the average too for the conditions
Good sharing of the pace making also, no wheel suckers on this ride
now where to next?
funniest quote of the day
Tim - i think i might go to prestons after the ride (going for 250+)
2nd funniest quote
Spiz - i think i might join you
Gave me a bit of a chuckle
My plan was to finish the ride and go straight to the couch
