Hillbrook still gives me nightmares


Ha! I did Hillbrook for the first time on Saturday. Sort of anticipated it finishing just around the first bend, so gunned the start. Whoops. Got a 4th for the 'To the first corner' segment and then realised my mistake. So. Much. Pain. :lol:

Sort of keen to try again with the aim of not blowing up right at the start... :oops:

Did Gap Creek Rd for the first time in ages today (albeit starting at the Payne Rd end. Was very nice and quiet out there. Unfortunately after that I made the mistake of following Dimma's suggestion and doing Haven Rd. Argh Damo it's evil!

I've had a couple more "helpful" climbing suggestions now - Monaro Rd at Mugeeraba and Robert Henri Dr at Tamborine.

I wish people would stop suggesting these things! :lol:

In all seriousness, it's kind of addictive doing these rides. Might as well find somewhere to ride where my puny legs are offset by my 62kg... :P

If you want to go straight to the top of the class don't bother with Henri Roberts Dr, give Mystery Rd a go instead.

It was cool enough this morning.
We hardly raised a sweat on the Gap Ck Loop.

Took a detour/shortcut cross-country which was enormous fun on the roadbike.
Managed to find good barista afterwards too.

15 degrees and beautiful this morning :)

Hahaha. Summer time I ride more in the mornings and into the night while in winter I prefer to do night rides over morning rides. Flats and speed work during summer while into the hills for winter :P

A few of the guys didn't appreciate 340w for 20mins through 7 Sisters and are complaining their legs hurt, so Mt Mee is off unfortunately.
New ride is West Mt Cotton http://www.pelofy.com/ride/144

What an awesome way to start 2014.
Did the circuit in just under an hour at 27 km/hr average.
That is faster than usual because there was not much traffic so I could just blast along waterworks rd, moggill roads etcetera. Along the way Had a chat to another bloke doing a similar loop.

What a difference a week makes, similar circuit, similar weather, similar fairly brutal hills, but about 20 times as much traffic, even at 6.30am.

That was in January. School holidays.
Fast forward to a wednesday morning in May.
Even more traffic, tons of it. Lots of tradies on their way to jobs on the other side of town.
Also quite a few urban assault vehicles transporting little persons to private schools far away from home.
Also "roadworks" affecting the Western suburbs bikepath.
Therefore i think i will have to wait for another public holiday before i try Gap Ck loop again. :(

Did it again yesterday just to see if it really was as nasty as I remembered. It was. :lol:

No no, not trying to pin it on you this time - as a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly. Frankly the way I felt at times, that saying nearly had me coming and going. :lol:
