Why are they still playing when the red guy has already connected 4, and is about to connect another 4?

sunscreen? i think I'll be bussing home at this stage. JUST TOO MUCH.


I had a great time on the ride in this morning. Made sure all the motorists could see my big smile as well. Got a big thumbs up and smile from the driver of a car in front of me at some lights :)

I really would like some waterproof overshoes though, the rest I don't mind.


Good on yer.
No such exposure for me.
But i did tips me lid at one guy cruising down Payne Rd inbound this morning.
Was using Ayups well, giving him a lot of exposure, i think he was a commuter.
Me and the lazy dog walked up Coottha, it was ethereal up there. :)

It's a new craze called connect 8.

Although the red disc guy is cheating because while black disc guy was on the loo he had 4 extra turns.

I might be wrong but I haven't ridden on a completely dry road for 3 weeks before this morning.

Yeah but I was hungover like a MF and missed most of the day. Went for the ride through an electrical storm Sunday option, with flash flooding and landslides.

I was quite optimistic and after each wet ride I would clean down and relube the bike... Then I gave up. Haven't ridden at all since Sunday even though the muscles felt no soreness or fatigue from that day's "effort".

I've managed to get three days riding in this week. So I woke up with hope this morning only to see almost torrential rain occurring. My backyard neighbour's driveway is flooded. So I decided against riding. And then the sun came out <sigh>

Wazza made me ride in the rain this morning. And into a headwind. Then into a headwind plus rain. Sadist.

Nice effort Jason/Dan was too wet for me, I think I've worn my trainer out.
