Rained here all night besides someone said that if it looked like rain they would not attend. Was it dry?

No it was not dry, but it was not actively raining either...

Riverloop was almost deserted :?

Was going to come up for this one but I thought it would be pouring rain! That's the trouble with being a committed retro man, restored steel frames, real leather shoes, and wool jerseys are not good wet weather kit. I think I better invest in some more damp friendly gear. I don't think the climate shows any signs of change at the present! I need to adapt and risk the ridicule of my peers for selling out on my steadfast love and commitment to toe straps. But then again I may be able to just put old cleats on modern shoes, is that possible? I'm feeling better already! :D

Hahahahahaha. :lol:

Sorry, Retroman. Just trying to imagine you riding a plastic bike with plastic shoes, and modern techno-wank kit.......

hahahahahahahhaha... nope, can't imagine it. :lol:

But you are right. It wasn't the morning to be out there in a wool jersey and leather shoes.

I and my better half agree!
I think the modern shoes will suffice! and maybe a gilet I still feel like a twit wearing a modern helmet (although I'm sure my bonce would be better protected in the event of a mishap) and even the great Fausto wore one some times, I'm sure Bartali had it anylised to see if it provided any advantage!

Nice riverloop with Steve today although the roads were damp, there was no rain during the ride (at least not till i got down to Wynnum afterwards) and the rear mudguard i used came in handy so as not to get a brown racing stripe on my A. I extended out my ride for a little after having brekky to make up for the fact that i piked last week :oops: when rain was threatening, but didn't eventuate -

Here is my route taken, with a little detour to make up for last weeks slackness...

It was a good one thanks. Glorious weather conditions this morning.
Friendly bloke on an aero Giant showed us the Chelmer riverloop extended route.
Just a hint of fog in places. Plenty of warm early morning sun.

Yep, was a great morning :D Found the extra 6km this morning through the leafy streets of Chelmer fantastic. Lots of joggers on that side of town and we struck a big group of roller bladers around West End

Want to see Pinny finished for next Raturday :wink:

Forgot I committed to going to Straddie at unreasonable hour. :shock: I can put the bike in the back :D

Thanks for the nudge Wazza. Pinny sidelined while I work nights to mould four fairings that Callum was supposed to learn to do over the holidays for his school's recumberants. http://www.technologychallenge.com.au/i ... x?page=302 Now urgent and no teenage commitment. No carbon either :(
