Is anyone heading out tonight since it rained last night ?

Yeh I'll probably head out if the rain stays away. I won't be able to keep up with you though Pete :cry: .

Hmm, we could ride at 7:00pm if you like..... however I don't have a front light, was going to borrow that from Don but he's not going. Hate to be the party spoiler, I might hit the trainer for a while tonight instead..Pains me not to go outside for a ride however Carol has just gotten off night shift and I think I need to stay home even if its only to make a crapload of noise on the trainer :-)

Cheers..Pete

I bought a JetBlack unit. Has the variable resistance device on it, cable clips onto bars. Bought in Adelaide shop for $220AUS. Resistance is ok though I've found that I just leave it on the hardest setting and vary the gear and cadence for now. Will have to fire up the spinerval DVD and git it a whirl :-)

I met up with Boognoss last night and rode my usual 50Km Norwest to Horsley Dr return. I had trouble keeping up even though he rode at half pace so I could :) . I really need to ride more. Anywho, thanks for the company Simon and sorry for the slow pace.

Nice to meet you too Spiro. I wasn't exactly at half pace, but it was a nice cruise for a change. Riding solo I can never hold back and not push myself to the limit ;-). Riding and chatting is great. On a lighter bike you'll be faster :D.

LOL, nah it would be too hard to be going flat out and trying not to look like I was dying :-). I'm blaming Spiro for my desire to add a MTB to my "collection". I'm never satisfied with what I have.... :?

I really hope to get out on the cycleway with you guys in the future at the normal time. Just hard when I don't commute like you do Don!

Ok maybe it was closer to quater :wink: .

The bike could be as light as a feather but I don't think it's going to make much of a difference with 90kg sitting on top of it :lol: .

Nope definitely not a quarter (and no, it wasn't less than that either ;-)).

I'm about 85kg on a good day. I just moved most of it into ridiculously bulky leg muscles (IMHO) at the gym before I discovered the joy of being outside and yelled at my random motorists :roll: :wink: . You should see my "before" pictures from 2003-2004 when I was about 3 or 4 clothes sizes larger. Scary.

You did well mate!!
