Average is time over distance Rob so as long as your computer wasn't timing your 30min break it wouldn't effect your average speed

Rockviewau: Def try hit the 65km AGF ride. The extra distance will motivate you over the next few weeks to get out more and put more Km in your legs, plus it will be a great achievement if you can do it.

Had a great ride this arvo. Did Red Hill first (From tuggers) which was fun. Last time i went up there i had Compact cranks so was a bit more of a grind today. The cruised over to the lake and did a lap before heading back home. Was cruising along on the way home and 2 roadies went passed me. I remembered them for a ride home last year where i towed them up the hill so thought i would try keep up. They got a bit away from my on Athlon drive but then they got a red light so i caught them. From there it was on like donkey kong as there were about 7roadies all at the lights. Did a good effort up the hill then followed them down to Lake Tuggers. As I went past them said thanks for the tow and they said no worries, just like when i towed them last year they thanked me. So the last 1okm of my ride were flat chat and felt really good.

Also yesterday did a 50km ride over to LBG and back. Did a sub 38min around LBG which was ok, i always aim for sub 40min. Having not ridden for 9days though i felt a bit rusty, unlike today's effort :) .

almost forgot this thread.

Was planning to do the Uriarra Loop but stopped when i saw the road closed sign.

Rode the Coppin Crossing instead and head back to City then went out to Eagle Hawkes for a quick ride in 1.5 hours.

Feb 100km+ ride done (my aim this year is to do at least 1 100km+ ride a month).

102km - 3:45.48 - 27.1km/h avg

Home - Stromlo - 2 x Uriarra/Cotter Loop - Woden - Home

Uriarra loop was brilliant first time, lots of cyclists out and about. 2nd lap was a bit quieter (late morning) but still a nice ride. Happy I did 2 laps as now I know I can do the 110km for the Amy Gillett Ride. 1st lap I was the cat as there was another cyclist about 1min ahead going around the same pace so was a good target. Eventually caught him on the hill behind Cotter. 2nd Lap I was the mouse as had a guy bearing down on me, made me push it up the hill which was good and he passed me at the cotter pumping station. Last climb out of Cotter was a bit of a grind but got their eventually. Pretty happy with my average as well given the nature of the ride.

Edit: Just had a look at todays ride in SportTracks. 1st Lap = 1:19:17, 2nd Lap = 1:19:30. Very surprised that there was only 13seconds between the 2 laps :shock:

A small 75km recovery ride today :P .....actually it was more a 75km slog in order to get a PB for most Km in a week. Previous best was 331km in Oct 09, needed 70Km today to beat it and of course had to add a few on to make it worth while. So my weekly Km PB is now 337km :lol:

Few days off now which works well as my new bars, stem & bar tape should arrive tomorrow.

My regular Monday lunch time MTB run. Today it was around Majura Pines. My MTB rides have been at Stromlo lately and I think I got into a groove. The tighter terrain and obstacles at Majura shook me up a bit and I crashed twice.

The first was a low speed over the handlebars job as my front wheel got caught on a rock coming out of a little dip :o. Should have done more to lift the bars - oh well. Then about ten minutes later I was blasting along some slightly down hill single track when I manged to time my pedal downstroke perfectly as I was passing a small stump - unintended MTB aerials :shock: . Thankfully the landing was pretty soft - though the sound was pretty impressive, apparently.

The damage: a bit of knee blood, a sore shoulder and right thigh, and one crunched right SLX gear indicator (from the first crash).

Think I'll ride the roadie tomorrow :roll:

Friday Morning 6AM meeting at ANU Union (near Purple Pickle cafe).

Route: http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/australia ... 2257051595 including hills to Red Hill Lookout

People will get divided into groups. fast, intermediate, 2nd intermediate. You can pick the bunch that suits your pace and condition.

Usually finish just after 7AM for the intermediate group, leaving you enough time to either have a big breakfast with the bunch or, if you live nearby, get home for shower and head out for work feeling fresher than ever.


This one looks good. I've gotta join one of these rides one day, I do sometimes tire of riding by myself. Doy you need a proper roadie? Do people get laughed out of town showing up on flat bars?

87km done and dusted, 85% of which was with Eric & Rob. Route was Kambah - Stromlo - Uriarra Loop - Mt Stromlo Climb - Woden - Lake Tug - Kambah. Had some fun chasing down a few guys on on other rides here and there. Heaps of ppl out and about on this awesome day. Cheers guys for the fun ride :)

Won't get to ride tomorrow so Feb effort is complete. Target of 625km gooooooooone, total Kms = 707.8 :lol:

awesome month haks..... hopefully i can get there soon enough :)

i did mawson - woden - scrivener - belco (inc ginnenderra loop) - lost around kaleen - Found AIS - city - Central LBG loop - back to woden turn off near scrivener - woden - home - bath - couch

65.4kms in 3hr 15mins meaning 20.1km/h

im prety impressed with myself.... the 2nd 20kms was my fastest, took about 54mins, which is good for me.

atleast i know what 65kms feels like for when i do the AGF ride in a few weeks,..... that ride will just have more hills....

Well done, that is a common route of mine.

I would recommend you give Stromlo - Cotter & back a run before the AGF ride. Its less than 10km (one way so 20km return) and will def set you up nicely for the AGF.
