A nice view at the crit circuit this afternoon. For some reason everyone bailed quick smart :P I got caught up in the rain when I got the redlight on the Nundah bypass waiting to get back onto Sandgate Road. Bucketed down but got ahead of it going up the hill to Hamilton Road. Gunning it along Sandgate road at 50kph looking back to see the rain engulfing all the cars. Eventually I had to make a left turn to head westbound and that's why it caught me again just a couple minutes from home. Getting red lights didn't help the cause. Almost out ran it :P

Noice pics Luke. No need to explain why it took 4 to change one tyre. :)

Sandgate Rd was a car park, so I decided to reluctantly wait it out at Maccas Virginia. I had the joy of listening to the plump staff shout at each other, though resisted a Big Mac.

naturally, SS and I exchanged texts at 4 this morning canning Glorious..the forecasts don't seem to be as accurate as 10 years ago, hence why we're always planning stuff up to the 11th hour...

Hahaha. We might have met up for the third time today haha. As I got stuck at the lights outside Nundah in the heavy rain I highly considered stopping in at the Maccas on Sandgate Road for a thickshake/ice cream/nuggets (I can't eat their burgers. They might taste nice but towards the end I just feel like crap and question why I bought one in the first place) while the rain passed/eased off. I started to out run it hence why I didn't end up stopping there :P

Maccas has never tasted nice Luke :rolleyes:

If you think it does you seriously need to broaden your food horizons.

If I choose to get fat on take away food it certainly wouldn't be on the most bland food ever to be created by man.

Scotty, I recall Luke telling me he doesn't like vegetables or salad!
Where do the younger generations pick up these predilections from?
And some parenting authorities say kids grow out of phases, so leave em be. hmmm.
Come on Lukey, every pizza and maccas meal is 1000km less you'll be able to ride in your lifetime!

Well I was going to nick name you Rider on the Storms, Lukey.
But seems I might have to change that to Rain Man. ;)

Seriously though, I have had a lot to do with autism spectrum disorders professionally, and I seriously doubt you have anything profound.
And the medical view is associated cognitive issues dramatically improve with more fruit and vege, and worsen with refined carbs.
Besides, you seem as normal as your highly talented boss! :)

Lycra……too…..hard…..to……pull……over………sweaty thighs.

Must ride bike without drowning in my own sweat, although I'm all moist just from brushing my teeth.
Gas propulsion.......it's natural don't fight it.

Some pics I took of all this weather last week. The lightning shots were just last night. All taken from our street and Coles in Ipswich's CBD. ImageImage

Surprizingly nice weather for a short ride this morning. Not stinking hot (yet) and not stinking humidity (yet).

Looks like Christmas Eve is the soonest forecast day with hot weather, 34 they reckon.

Slightly intimidating weather conditions yesterday. HOT and WINDY.
Made it a bit of a challenge going up the mountain. :?
Because of the wind, the view had better than average clarity for a summer's day.
