Well I had already done 15k when I decided to hook up with the bunch ride at the Surf Club. I stayed with them for about 7Ks and even did a turn on the front, :shock: that, was not part of the plan! :lol: Well I knocked over 57.7Klm for the morning a distance I have not covered in 30yrs. 8)

Paid for it though. Just did a 22klm steady spin to try and ride out some of the soreness and stiffness this morning. :(

Been slack these last three weeks but had a nice spin this morning. Will go and join the bunch ride from the Surf Club for another ride in the morning. They leave at 7am for the ride. :mrgreen:

Look for the slow dude on the Merida... All going well I will be doing a lap or two when the sun comes up... Need to head back early though; grandies will only cover the kids so long... :-)

Well that hurt but pain is good! :mrgreen:

Did you ride past the bunch over at the surf side around 7am Brett? There was a bloke on a Merida on the opposite side to us.

I did about 40km on the island this morning.
Looked like a good group.
I will have to plan my trips accordingly to join the group sometime.

How do you keep track of when the group goes for its rides?

Mistake :lol: Oh the embarrassment of it all but I did last about 7ks with them. Some how I ended up doing about a Klm on the front. :shock: This was because I was a little late and meet them coming towards me, so I turned and was expecting them to roll past me and then I was going to sit on. Wrong, they pulled up on the back of me and I burnt my legs big time on the front with Merv (68yrs) at a speed of 33-35Kmh. :)

The plus side was I lasted 6.5klms further than Christmas when they pulled 200mtrs out of me in 300mtrs. :lol:

Well done Foo. Based on your past life as a racer that speed is hiding in there somewhere and I reckon you'll find it surprisingly quick if you push yourself with rides like that.

If it's not raining in the morning, I will go and meet up with the Sunday crew again. I went out this morning and only did 8Klms :oops: as I didn't put my phone in a ziplock bag (big rain clouds moving my way)and for some reason my legs were just crap. :? I've gotten soft in my old age! :(

The bunch had a bee in their bonnet this morning and I was gone after 5ks :oops: but it was partly my fault through sitting on the back. :( I only do this so I don't back anyone off but I need to sit in front of the women now I think. :wink:

On the plus side my speed average was still up considering I road three quarters of it by myself. :D
