A+ for effort, better than nothing anyway. Shame about the weather and the flag. :)

The weather was shite today, took the MTB out this morning & rode to Nudgee Beach, there was about .5 metre of water across the bikeway after the crit track at Toombul, it was worse around lunchtime, took the single speed for a ride to 1 Mile Creek & back, couldn't see cr@p, glasses fogged up so couldn't see through them, but the wind & rain was that hard you couldn't ride with them up. Also managed to fill the Garmin up with water, played up when I downloaded the files for both rides, spent 2 hours stopped on this mornings ride (yep I managed to do 50kms on a MTB in a little over an hour), then lost the heart rate halfway round on my second ride, it's currently sitting in a container of rice.

Planned to ride tomorrow (I go on holidays on Friday, so no bikes at all for 2 weeks for me), but with the weather the way it currently is I may only do laps of Bunyaville forest park rather than straying too far from home.

We did almost the same, but didn't go past the .5 metre depth marker at the crit track. Funny coincidence though as my Garmin wasn't happy along with my Contour camera which both had a dummy spit after the ride.

Yep....... Bunyaville/Ironbark sound like good options for Monday.
Gas propulsion.......it's natural don't fight it.
