Almost no rain in Brisbane for almost 24 hrs ?
Raining again ..... normality has returned
I hear you brother. I still had slick tyre cx mud action happening, but gutters were dry.
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.
Spat the dummy.
Sent from my iPhone using tapatalk 2 whilst sitting on the bus with umbrella shoes helmet and backpack since it rained as soon as I went to get ready to leave aaaaaaahhhhhhhh I'm so over all this water..... Head explodes.
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>
Congrats Jason...now there an even a bigger gap between us, I got four rides in this week but today's short ride was the worst, got totally drowned, blerk!
I've been sneaky only riding my flat bar so I only have 1 dirty bike.... but I sooo miss riding the Fuji
I finally gave in and decided to go to my LBS to buy some rollers. They've sold out. One of the guys working there is bringing his in for me to pick up tomorrow to try out.
I guess this is one way of getting the sun out, me getting rollers to beat the rain
Got lucky this morning - attended the Chappy Challenge 65km ride in Boonah and the rain held off until almost 9am.
By which time most of the riders were back at the start and conversing over coffee
Admittedly we were all a bit damp because as soon as you get off the bike your shoes sink into the mud and wet.
And of course there was a lot of spray off the wet roads.
Hows this for an almost-dry road
and before the penultimate leg of the event - Ganthorpe Rd, which we were warned would be full of potholes and partially under water. Actually it was not too bad...
The drive back to Brisbane northside was quite hairy - lots of rain, surface water and the usual numbskull driving

Finally fitted the mud guards to my fix gear and went for a ride today. It's been 10 days since I have ridden and I was going stir crazy.
Mud guards were great. No spray in the face, no spray on the feet and no skunk mark up the back. Got home wet but clean, not muddy from the pot holed farm tracks I rode.
