Dodges Ferry/Carlton saw cyclists here, there, and everywhere today. Much strava talk took place, and I suspect a couple of participants might have gone home to plan some record attempts.
Every day is "Thursday" in Dodges Ferry :D

It appears to be more than a rumour that the Mighty DFBTR Dictator Paul B, may be temporarily 'off line' in the short term. I hope I speak for all who have witnessed his might deeds, when I wish him a speedy return to velo-awesomeness (if I can get this, my first post, to work).

A depleted field for the DFBTR this week, particularly with the absence of Dictator Paul B. Nevertheless, a sunny, dry, cool, windless morning in Dodges, was way too good to waste. A straightforward ride to Primrose Sands, and return via Sugarloaf saw the peloton set a pretty languid pace. Pretty uneventful. One honk from a motorist - Friend? Foe? Dunno! The usual serenity at the Bakery upon completion of 50 kms. - Andrew T. P.S. Apologies to Paul A, whom I contacted prior to the ride, to inform him of my certain non attendance for the ride. I didn't anticipate that I would be able to bribe my wife. $1.00 per km, pretty good value. To the rest; too bad. If I have to put up with me, so can you. :x

Thanks for the thought guys. Yep, will be out of action as I undergo a year long drug programme that may ... or may not result in restoration to good health. Hopefully once I settle into treatment I will be able to enjoy some short easy rides.

DFBTR was had at an ideal temperature this morning.........the temperature at which one might find champagne enjoyable :D

A mid ride break for coffee was had at the Sorell Mens Shed. Did you know that you can have endless coffee four days per week for $2 per week. :D
Note that I did not use the words "good" and "coffee" in the same sentence :twisted: .

Oh for a real cappuccino machine :)

..............and then the ride continued....................to.....................Dodges Ferry of course :D

Oh the shemozzle that is DFBTR :shock:

Today "T" stood for "Tuesday", and off we went :D

7.30am was cool , not as in "cool baby", more as in "coold sport"!

Ah,well, the ride home was nicely warm. :D :D :D :D :D :D

A fine day in the east for DFBTR this morning. I started alone, but was overhauled by 3 latecomers heading up Scenic Drive. The pace was comfortable , and the company polite. That should be a warning sign :D
Coffee at the Halfway House, a good debate, and homeward bound. The sprint onto Iron creek was a beauty, with Redheeler taking the honours :?
Must have been laced coffee, as the victorious heeler seemed to be heading in the opposite direction to the second placegetter.............

Oh.............how the DFBTR grabs the imagination :wink:
