Nice ride this morning. Lots of commuters, bike lanes are excellent. Going into a set of traffic lights and you have a bunch of 10 commuters around you all sprinting the lights. Fun!

:) I might join in for a pre-work coffee and tailwind blast down to Sandy, Mordy or Franger before catching the train back to the CBD :wink:

Current Forecast for Sunday:
Sunny periods. Winds north to northwesterly averaging up to 40 km/h tending northerly up to 25 km/h later in the evening.
City, Sunny periods. Min 11, Max 16
No UV Alert, UV Index predicted to reach 1 [Low]

On a side note, wouldn't Northerly winds mean a headwind down to Mordy and a tailwind back to the CBD :?:

In other news, I been chewing down Dimetap's like Ben Cousin's on sleeping tablets and feeling well enough to ride, and with the weather looking better, I'll be there for sure! :)

Looking forward to it all tomorrow!

Beautiful morning for riding. Had a nice ride with the guys down as far as Black Rock before heading inland to catch the train back to work. Nice northerly tailbreeze made my 46 x 17 gearing a tad low, but nice spinning anyway. All the other woosers had gears :P :wink:

Lovely day for a ride despite the wind. I hoped to crack the 100km today but a combination of failing to refuel at Mordi and just being unfit slowed me down quite a bit. When I got back to town I caught the train back home. In the end I did 85km so I was pretty happy with that. Should be able to do 100km next time I go out.

Thanks for meeting me everyone and coming out to ride. I really enjoyed the ride. The ride and scenery was great. Great road. Great bunch of fellas to ride with. I apreciate you all coming out for a ride. The ride out was smooth and fast. Ride back with the wind.....I enjoyed that too. Few undulations found it tougher in the wind. Im sorry we lost you Ken near Albert Park. I didn't know we had.
