I suspect they've been quietly training under the strava radar so as to smash us on Mangrove Mtn and all the other climbs. :wink:

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!
:D

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 :shock:

Dito Chris, top day out,but glad to be home, i struggled in the heat today, and got dropped on every climb :shock: , 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 :shock: :shock: ,i think Spiz might have done a little wee in his nicks as he was behind me :mrgreen: :mrgreen: .

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 :D
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 :D :D . 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 :D :D :D
Pretty happy with the average too for the conditions :D :D
Good sharing of the pace making also, no wheel suckers on this ride :D :D

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 :lol: :lol: :lol:
My plan was to finish the ride and go straight to the couch :!:
