Merry Christmas all. Anyone going to ride a century that day?

No, but the ACT Vets 'recovery ride' leaves the Jolimont Centre at 8:00am on Boxing Day. I'll let you know how far we went when I get back from it! :D

A Boxing day ride, strewth. My "at Mums for dinner belly" would just get in the way :lol: I like the idea for carbo loading via brown bottle though.
At least I've actually got the two days off for a change 8)

Merry Christmas to everybody, happy 2007 in the wind :)

Hmm, unless I'm very much mistaken, there is a pub there ... so you probably won't get very far at all :D

It's at least 100 metres to the nearest pub (P J O'Reilly's - not that I'd know a thing like that), but it won't be open at that that time of the morning (even in Canberra). Maybe it will be when we get back! :D

Prepare for a debate over cyclists on roads/footpaths and the lack of PT useage with the relatives.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas all, watch them cars with the boozed up drivers for a while...

I'm hoping for a speedo, or some new wheels before mine rust away to nothing and colapse beneath me :P

Merry Christmas

Postby cricetidae » Tue Dec 26, 2006 9:21 am

Well I got a Christmas present of sorts for myself the other day when they were on special.

Some Look Keo (Classic) pedals that I thought would look great on the Masi instead of those ordinary brandless ones that are currently on my pride and joy. So imagine my surprise that when I went to fit them I found one of the pedals had been cross threaded when assembled.

Disappointment is one word that comes to mind but only as an adjunct to all the swearing that went on. So this week it is back to the bike shop where I got the Masi and they can fix the problem by replacing the left crank.

We headed away from the pub and kept on going!
The ride was a relatively easy trip out the Federal Highway to Shingle Hill Road and back with breakfast at the Italian Bite in Civic. Just over 57 km by my speedo, averaging 28.6 km/hr - it was a great ride, with about 50 of us all up.

Bus, what do you mean bus!
This was a bike ride. The table at breakfast looked a bit like a bus - most riders stayed and we had one long table with over 30 people sitting down.
We even had a 'celebrity sighting'. Mick Rogers stopped for a while in his magenta team colours, but he didn't sit with us - a 'real' rider's physique is a bit different to your average Vet! :?
