See you next weekend folks, it's my missus' birthday this Saturday, so i'll be unable to get on the bike to join you. :(
It looks like the weather will be perfect too, so put a couple of extra km in for me.

I've got the extended loop route in the garmin and i'm ready for some serious riverloopage. May have to ride from home if the missus needs car so it might turn into a 70km day for me. :D

George's Pinny should be up for Raturday, but not tweeked and shiny,and probably with bits of bar tape hanging off it. Gears not quite right yet. A Zzzzzzz to go with Munga's click-click and Steve's creak-creak.

My shoes are getting dangerous on account of the velcro straps letting go; could make it hard to get out of the clips. New shoes need no-platform SPD, got a pair of used Wellgo's out in the ether somewhere. Can somebody lend me peddles for Raturday? Coffee + I drop'em I buy'em?

Really enjoyed the ride this morning. Even better for the double up on coffee. Thanks gents.
Dan, you are spot about the peddles, they are going on the Raleigh for knocking around on.

Any retro riders wanting to play tomorrow? I intend doing the extended riverloop starting at 6.30 from the usual place at Browning St, West End. Riding from home so it'll be another big day for me...

No worries mate, I was late in posting here after getting back from doing some training for some of the staff in Adelaide - I was told that you were the only one that turned up last week at Wrapture for coffee and it must have been my turn for a solo. I did just a smidgen under 80km this morning and it was beautiful weather for jumping on the bike for a ride.
