Hell of a run down.... felt like I was flying. 2:44 ride time... avg 36.5. In hind sight.. confusion reigned early on in my group. 2/10 as one of them said for organisation. That was probably a little generous We should have just put the hammer down from the start. If you see the log below you can see how easy we took it at the start. At about 1:20 we just put the hammer down. Will just smash it next year.
See the ride down here.
The ride home was **much** slower for my group. We stuffed around getting away.. had a flat... stopped for a pie at Yatala... etc.
I'm just necking brews watching the GP 209k down.. what a day!
If I'd stopped for a pie at Yatala I might have made it all the way back. As it happens I bailed at Beenleigh, 25k short of the plan (I was going to ride home up through Mt Cotton).
Just shows, if you don't do the training then the knees will fall apart and the thighs will cramp up.
Mind, the way down was 2:53 at an average of 35.15. So I'm happy enough with that.
I'll have to get in better shape for the Tour de Tamborine and the BMW ride, whenever that is....
Did you just see the rugby?
