3 Hours 20 ride time here, 86km.
Was very nice, more company will be good next time :wink:

Harden up princess. :P Last week's audax ride was wet for almost the whole 200km. Feet came out looking like prunes.


Been there, done that. Except the 200km part.

You really shoulda just told me you'd see me on the crit track - you still have that over me - I ain't been game enough to try racing yet ;)

Pedal power does Uriarra loop next Saturday starting from Coolemen Court. Interested?

Actually never gone riding with that group before but I don't think pace is what they are after. Should be a comfortable pace I would have thought.

There's always someone struggling to do 20km/h on PedalPower rides.

Hmmmm could be a bit slow. I'm guessing they go as or near to the speed of the slowest rider/ or have regular catch up spots?

I think they re-group at a few points. At least at Cotter Reserve, and Stromlo Observatory t-junction. These 2 will probably the rests on the way back.

I really *want* to do crits, just to damn scary. You should come do the 300 next saturday, it's a loop ride so you could treat it like a long crit track :P
