Beautiful weather for a ride from caversham to Jandakot. The river was so still and I had the breeze behind me on the way home tonight. Magic ride.

Where abouts in Jandakot johnny? I saw a guy ride past on a red FG/SS with tri-bars and my 20month old daughter pointed "bike bike!". I'm near the back 9 of the golf course (not the fancy pants area across the road).

Down near the airfield.
Rode the bike path all the way along the freeway and then down the hill to to the airport. Wasnt me as my bike is blue and I dont have tri bars. But it was a great ride and the ride home was just as good. 82kms all up

It was OK about 8 too. But from then on it's been downhill all the WA.

However I am looking forward to early morning ride in to work tomorrow.

I tend to ride south a couple of hours before the doctor comes in. By that time I've turned around. All good.

Went into Freo and back around the river yesterday arvo. Will be doing the same today.

Sensational morning for a ride around the river. Holidays and weather like this morning sure bring the cyclists out in force. Great to see

Crazy busy out this morning around 7.30 - 8.00 on the Kwinana PSP - busier than the freeway I reckon :)

Special shout out to the guys wearing Sanity jerseys - not sure if thats a club or a shop ride ?,demonstrating awesome skills, riding two/three abreast, surging and stalling, and swamping any poor slower rider in their way. Nice going.

Ticked off the Strava Challenge - Gran Fondo 1 yesterday. Temps averaged 34 C and peeked at 46 C ... it hurt in the later stages.

Perth:

It didn't matter how early you started - at Midnight it was 34C and 40.6 at 9:30. It has not dipped below 30 at any time. The only thing smart about riding today was that it was not yesterday.

I cheated and took the train home. I figured 30 something kms was enough.

If you haven't discovered it's therapeutic benefits yet, I urge hot and heat stressed riders to join the kids in the fountain in Forest Chase. A soaked body-tight lycra singlet or riding shirt keeps you cool for a good forty minutes. 8)

Smart move turning back. Today is one of those days where I did not question the need for the pool and all the work that goes with it.

You do realise with all the new found aerodynamics and efficiency of the velomobile you're going to have to ride a helluva lot more to maintain or gain any health improvements?

:lol: Still....

You local owners will have to enter as a group the Channel 7 Christmas Pageant next year. From my occasional following of your Velophilliac thread, you seem to enjoy being pointed and gawked at.... the parade will be a wet dream for you. :D
