When the Dams ride was initially released the largest jersey was XL and this was 12cm too small for my chest size! I'm normally an XL in common brands like Assos or Cycology. I wrote to them telling them there'd be a lot of unhappy people and they increased their jersey sizes to 6XL. I ordered a 4XL based on the sizing chart and it is only just acceptable! There are lots of people on the BWA FB page requesting swaps, one even requesting a swap from a Medium to a 2XL! LOL
I got so spooked by that first hill in the buildup that I actually found it not bad at all. The final 2 hills were much more testing for me.
The Albany Hwy stretch was not much fun at all but I guess was a necessary evil to link the dams.
I wore my trusty R2-D2 jersey and regular knicks. I'll save my Dams crop top jersey for wearing with my bib shorts
Me and my ride mate got blown around by a semi passing us at speed in the near lane on Albany Hwy. That was not fun.
That and the 5-6 dead roos on the side of the road putting out some mighty powerful stench you could almost chew on!
