Likewise Josh. Was good to put some faces to names, and take the Repco out for a ride.

Despite the week of rainy nearly non commuting disappointment, Steve and myself managed a bit of a ramble thru Red Hill, Newmarket, Ballymore, Brekky Creek & Ascot on Saturday and was only lightly sprinkled on. I found out later that Dan & Wazza engaged in quite a bit of hill climbing out the back of Samford which likely would have killed me, as i'm built for comfort, not for speed. :)
Fingers crossed for some better weather next time. It's great checking out new places in Brissie, as i usually ride bayside from Wynnum to the city & to the southeast, to Carindale, Mt Gravatt, Wishart, Chandler and as far as Rochedale.

Ten points if you can identify the following view from the ride;

yep, at the bus stop.

steve seems like such a nice bloke, but you go for a ride with him and wonder if he's trying to kill you.
did he talk to you all the way up blair st?
it's not a real ride with steve until you've left some stomach lining somewhere.

Ding! we have a winner, that's the top of Blair St, at the bus stop.

While deciding where to ride at 6.40am after waiting for anyone else to turn up, Steve suggested a ride thru a bit of the northside and promised me that the route was *fairly* flat...
Steve, I think was taking it easy in front while ascending the hill up Crosby Rd, Massey St, then Blair St, while i was trying not to burst a vessel. :oops:
All good though and there were some nice long descents to make up for it, which due to my superior weight advantage meant i could overtake Steve without even pedaling. :lol:

Haha. I might have qualified but I think the 2013 carbon fibre roadie disqualifies me from being "Retro" :lol:
