I used to live nice and handy to Kings Park. All the rides and meets were up at Hillarys. I move to near Wanneroo and all the rides are South of the River or Kings Park. :cry:

I'm out for now, it's too hot for me and the tourer is still off the road awaiting parts. The MTB is too heavy :D

Once it cools I'll make the ride down the freeway to the city and try and meet up :D

Maybe wait for us at the northside of south strret bike track for say 710 am .... i will stop and wait for you if you .

Dont worry ,if your new i wont set a cracking speed .... but it will give you a chance to work on cadence and ask questions if that helps out

my mobile number is 0405510928

Well it was great to meet up with some new faces !
We headed off at 7am ,Cambo didn't sleep in :lol:

Caught sight of ol Graham on freeway north , was just trying to work out which bearded bent bike rider he was , Camo pointed out that they all seem to have brought a beard with their excentric bikes :lol: :lol:

There was plenty to look at ,whilst we changed tubes .... world record was set by me for flats .... Cambo blew one ....

But was a good morning out !

Special thanks to Mr Bling and his $5million dollar Giant for the lift back :wink:

Yep, I was the one with the beard .... ;) Nimm was with us too.

There was a lot of glass around this morning. Sorry to hear that it was you guys who removed some of it.

Had you guys been planning to meet up 30 minutes earlier, I would have joined you for the ride into the city. The group of 'bent riders I meet regularly gathers at the Burswood at 7.00am, so I need to be passing Bull Creek by about 6.15 to get there in time.

Cheers,
Graeme

Funkymonk - how far did you guys ride in the end?

Graeme, I ended up doing 76km today - that's actually the most I think on any single day on my current bike. Mostly due to lack of enough hours rather than worried about endurance...

Myself and a mate rode with Funkymonk and WCE today. The two of us completed the day with just under 85k's. The other two guys didn't quite travel as far due to flats so I'd estimate they rode circa 75k's.

Ah, good to see you were able to point out exactly who wears the pants in your family, even if they are tight, shiny and made of lycra! :D

Thanks for the ride yesterday, learnt a lot with gear changes etc, the only problem was I got a bit enthusiastic later on in the afternoon so decided to go for a ride to Baldivis and back. Well I am now sunburnt, dehydrated and the legs are mighty weary.
Going to try put the saddle down as you suggested Funkymonk but need a good rest before I try it.
I thought cycling was supposed to be a cheap means of travel but I guess not when you go through that many innertubes and CO2 cartridges LOL

Costing me around $1.30 per km at the moment on a cash based basis of accounting.
