I've just spent a few days in Jindabyne staying with a friend at her place and we rode every day. Best ride was to Charlotte's Pass which is the highest road in Australia (and a very big climb up from Jindabyne). Now I am in Bright and am tapering for the ACE 250. For the first time ever (in memory and post computer) I have ridden over 1,000km in a month - done 1150 so far which is an amazing amount of time on the bike. And frankly, unsustainable!

:D After reading your post I rode today in the park for 30km, on my 650c wheels the Teschner. It feels fine. I was going to sell it on eBay and buy a BMC 700 wheels as the spare bike but I thought that I don't need it , I only want it. :P

So over the rain, mould, ants invading everything and the musty smell from everything taking an age to dry :evil: :evil:
It's typical Brisbane summer weather but as it's been a few years since we've had 'typical' most of us have forgotten the 'joys' of a Brissy summer!

As long as this year we get to enjoy a 'typical' Brissy winter all will be forgiven :wink:
