No remember. Road bikes are for the road. MTB's are for the dirt. :D


That might explain the constant punctures I keep around Bunyaville. Thanks for the tip! :lol: :lol:

Showers and storms to Thursday and then just showers until the forecasts stop. I suspect it might be mostly the commuters that get hit here.

The weather is not excuse to stop cycling :P :P

So much for these morning storms! There were plenty of peletons along the Corso this morning, so either the fairweather riders are getting braver or no-one is paying attention to these "expert" forecasts ;)

Only just saw this! I got a sneaky couple of Cootha laps in and home by 8… very much dry. Even got a surprise little PR on the back from a casual cruise up there. Awesome night out. :mrgreen:
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

Main problem was dodging all the belly up toads on road, coming down the front of Coottha.

Well I don't recall seeing you either, although going up the back this morning my field of vision had shrunk down to about 10 degrees, so that's not saying much... :lol: :oops:

Got no flex up (and probably couldn't keep up with you two anyway), but I'm curious - what is the route for that loop?
