A nice ride today Angus, thanks for the organisation, my legs are aching a bit due to all that flat spinning (I'm more accustomed to slow grinding) or maybe it was lack of the heart starting caffeine. Definately need a new city starting point Boccelli's is gorrrrrrrrrrrrrn.
Thanks for all coming out.
Boccelli's was a total fail! There were 30+ La Squadra (the Bocelli's team) sitting there, about 10 of us and a few others who all would have bought coffee. Crazy! Suggestions for another city start point are welcome.
Great ride Gus and hopefully a few dollars collected for a good cause at the start. An eventful ride back but that's a story for Zippy to tell, otherwise a great day on the bike.
I've got pictures, write up is in progress and will be up later once my kids actually let me write it!
Thanks for organising it Gus (and thanks for taking one of the rare photos of me smiling!). What a beautiful bit of weather for a burn along the coast.
Great to see all the Matts, Muddies Buddies, Thursday Nighters and a whole stack of AC-ers from the other side of town. Finished the day off with a cruise around Mutton Beach (thanks Kevin) with BJ and hit a head-wind all the way back home bringing this weeks total to about 300 km. I'm pooped.
OOOH OOOH OOOH 358kms for me, 1 Star cyles ride, 2 commutes, 1 Murray Bridge ride + today. Now I've got 7 days at work :-( :-(
358!! should be a law against riding that much. One day I'll find time to do a ride to Murray Bridge. Keep thinking about that big descent near Palmer...
Yes it's a fun descent, saw a lady assending it last Friday fully loaded with panniers and walking. Been feeling guilty ever since for not stopping for a chat
A great morning...weather, roads & a nice bunch of riders to boot! Was good to get more kms into the legs and under the bike, and I'm already looking forward to #2 on June 10th.
Thanks Gus for organising and thanks too to Heather & Stuart for the 3-person breakaway (or can 3 riders constitute a peloton?) up Port Road and through the city to the east-side.
Ride safe everyone, see you out and about
Fantastic day for it even though it was a chilly start.
Great to catch up with a few people, see the regulars and meet a few new people ....putting a face to a forum.
Riminimis was even open!! If only I had some more time...and my wallet...
Absolutely sensational riding day today, even better when my 6 yo daughter decided today was the day to take off the trainer wheels, no going back now.
Hopefully this weather holds for GS#3 next week.
