Aye, was lovely. Should've done more than 15km. Its on account of my super rain jacket arriving yesterday, you know. I did it for you, Luke.

Thanks are also due to all of the others on this forum who have recently bought jackets, shoecovers, indoor trainers, pressure cleaners, amphibious devices etc.

No problems :) Actually it was freezing here this morning, couldn't have been much over 20 degrees so I'll need the shoe covers again soon :)

Cheers for that Dan. I was getting really tired of cleaning my bike every second day. Now we're battling strong head winds it seems (doesn't seem too bad today though). Might be time to buy that Cervelo S5, some expensive Zipp deep dish rims, one piece lycra suit and an aero helmet :lol: :lol:

A cracker of a morning, I did a training session on Nebo this morning working too hard to take in the views, had some idiot in a white Golf nearly take me out on the descent which put a blot on the ride...I'm sure that my Garmin shows a spike in my heart rate :shock:

It was cool'ish this morning, the car said 16 degrees at 5am!

Yes guys certainly great morning for a ride, agree a little cold at 0430, but didn't take long to warm up.

Nice little head wind on the way back from Cleveland point.

So good to be able to get back out on the bike and do some k's.

I chose a good time for an 8 week spell off the bike (vein treatment), but that time is up on Wednesday.....................what's the chance of rain I wonder ???

The Squizz has just braved the wet is heading out for a couple of hours on the Kedron Brooke bike path (Nudgee loop) on the MTB. That is if the water after the crit track isn't over the depth marker :roll:

I was contemplating heading out on the fix gear, it's got mud guards, but somehow this morning I have managed to put my back out. Got night shift for the next 4 nights so I hope it's all good by the end of the shift cycle. I have heard that the weather is suppose to improve during the week :roll: .

I hope it includes the wind going away...

Haven't had a day without wind for for ages..... Headwinds get a bit boring after a while.

Nope, don't think so, I think that the rules are for outdoor rides only! I didn't bother with my Garmin this morning....anyhow I had a mechanical after about 45 mins so that finished my session early.

Better for it to happen in the studio than on the track mid-race....all sorted due to my bike wizard at Crankstar :wink: and ready for a hurtfest on a Battle on the Border training ride tomorrow :shock:
