Wish I could. My back is still bung.

Has been a very nice day, typical for the last day of school holidays. Poor kids have been stuck inside most of the holidays.

It was a pretty nice day.
Went for a ride from Northgate to Wellington Point and back. A bit of exploring.
Great!

I went for a ride this morning and there was a big yellow thing in the sky following me the whole time, I don't know what it was and i'm a bit worried.

I saw one of those too. Every time I looked at it, it hurt my eyes so I don't think it was up to any good.

It was crap by the time I finally got out to riding today but only got worse when I had a blowout at 40kph 20km from home. As soon as I saw the rip in the sidewall I knew my only option was to call the family chauffeur :lol: :lol: Made even worse at home changing to some brand spanking new conti GP4000s... WHY SO DIFFICULT TO INSTALL ON MY AERO WHEELS!!

Was Queensland-born Pro Cyclist Adam Hansen training in Queensland this summer just gone, judging by his amazing wet weather bike handling skills ?
He went on to win stage 7 of the Giro yesterday.
Many others dis not handle the conditions as expertly as he did.
check it out, you don't often see highlights as action-packed as this. http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/video/29872707652/Giro-dItalia-highlights-Stage-7

In regard to the rain from 8/9/10th June................

That's Enough!

Did get a good MTB ride in though, once wet, stay wet... :D
Tuesday 11th shoes still not drying at all. The GLW not very impressed with the grit in the washing, or was it the forgotten banana skin. :cry:

If you don't get those shoes dry soon they are going to take on a very very special aroma. :mrgreen:
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:
