I would love to do this. If I can ask Nic to be a support driver for me and possibly the group and if she has company in the car.


Can I make another suggestion......

I'll be riding home that way from Kingston; what time will you be on Bonnet? Note, I'll be slow as I am not 100% well so no efforts for me!

:cry:

its going the wrong way.

early morning ride down in cloudy conditions and a nice tail wind of 25kms and a balmy 9 degrees

coming back at noon it will be heavy rain, 8 degrees and a 40km head wind. Just the conditions RobRollin thrives in.

Looking for a regular road training partner (weather permitting) for weekday early morning rides from Longford.
Leave at 5.50 - 6.00 am for approx 40 km rides at approx 28 - 30 kph average speed.
Can go a little slower if needed, but not much faster :-)
Return by 7.30 am. Can leave a little earlier if req'd.
Message me if you are interested.

Just out of wondering, has anyone here done the B42 between Avoca and Fingal via Rossarden and Mangana?

I see a couple of Strava segments on the early climbs, but any experience would be appreciated!
