Sadly last week was a once off, the next chance i might have to get a saturday off work probably won't be til winter. Such is life, otherwise i have an almost inexhaustible supply of bikes to take down and destroy .
Sundays on the other hand, i have available usually once a month. If anyone is keen on doing o'reilly's though, i am keen as mustard to get back down there as soon as possible. Amazing riding, and not as daunting as it sounds.
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.
should we get some feeback on moving the raturday to runday?
personally, i prefer saturdays, but if the majority say "yeah saturdays suck - we should do sundays" then i'm cool with that.
either way, it's always going to be a first-thing-in-the-morning ride.
Agree, gotta be a morning thing (even though it sucks when I'm on night or afternoon shift).
Agree, afternoons are for drinking beer not coffee.
Agree, bike with brifters suck (oh I thought I read that somewhere, maybe I just thought it)
that must have been extra. the wonders of medicine..
Thanks for sharing the vids - number 8 features me of course And credits to Lochie for your resolve and then to do the Canungra ride.
I am back from my quick trip to Melbourne. Rearing to go on Raturday of course.
Inspired by all those loonies who i saw trying to complete the circumnavigation of Port Philip Bay on sunday.
Towards the end of the day i saw the stragglers coming home along St Kilda parade about 7pm - about 12 hours after start.
They were battling against a ferocious headwind and fading light, after more than 200 km !
Favorite bike - whatever i am riding, as long as it has indexed shifters and inflated tyres
nobody on the beach??
you missed a nice ride this morning, wazza!
vaeske, todays ride was ok.
dan, crap day, didn't miss much.
Were my nuts loose???????
Must have been all that gear I did before we started, didn't even know that I was loose again.
Yeah Jason, it was elantra that had the loose headset, I actually tampered with it before we started , it was the only way I could keep up with him on the climbs, plus being on the gear.
i should have said hello. next time i get permission to ride on saturday, I'll say gday
jasonc, i give you permission. were you chilling in the corner with a vintage looking (maybe red, maybe santini?) jersey?
ps: i think elantra had a loose quill stem. old bikes, hey..
highlight for me today was feeling like garbage and dropping off the back at every opportunity, yet upon checking my strava during lunch, i'd hit pb's on 19 of 26 segments.
the last time i turned strava on was 12 weeks ago, so we're all getting fitter, no doubt about it!
elantra - symbicort: will talk to GP on tuesday.
wal - sms'd you my address.
tony - velocity razor. also, my raleigh is in love with your berretto. if any blue babies come along, we'll know why.
Here's the video's from Raturday, not sure how much there's to see, I think I may have ridden up the front most of the time.

munga wasn't really dropping off the back as much as moi 'serging' (my middle name is Serge) all the time, my fault as I was riding the late model bike (05 Trek EPO Sevice team bike), it's a bit like playing playstation, you don't need to be particularly skilled to ride very fast.
Jason, so you were wearing beige shorts & a red top? On a Fuji, I think (just me I don't notice modern bikes, sort of just fall into a blind spot in my eyesight), you should have ragged us some more, or atleast come over & introduced yourself.
Thank's for the address mate, I'll bring said tube spanner around Friday & we'll fix that sucker.
Can you talk about that !!! spammer !!! stuff on this family-friendly forum?
Not sure if the English Raleigh would be interested in that 'Colonial' Berretto
you've seen the garish makeup that raleigh wears. mingers are up for it with most anyone innit. orright guv etc
yup. that was me. and yes, next time I'll introduce myself
