Raffles, Rob ;) don't forget the beer wagon, too.

Today's ride - no one mentioned the, um, undulation in the middle.

About 60 riders in total. 4 groups, we had 12 today in our group I think, for an average of 28km/h over hilly terrain. Not bad. Pushing 40ish as a pack was fun :)

The road out around Maidenwell was the roads they used in the National series last year, mostly not bad until your heading back to Nanango.

If I had known you were passing through Maidenwell I would of road out and cheered you on... :grin:

That's the spot where I sat when I rode out to watch the road series last year. Good little shop there to. There is even an observatory for those looking for the stars.

Was it as windy on your ride as it is in Yarraman today?

Blow a dog off a chain here today....

Still ended up with not a bad time for the ride, even with all the wind.

Don't forget wazza, who manufactured a bottom bracket problem to enable him to sit out an afternoon leg and drink beer in the sag wagon, and Elantra who did the entire distance with cages and 6 speed friction shifting.
