Well it's good to see you on here.

I have not ridden with CPG for a while, and have lost touch with the group.

Hope your all doing well, & everyone is still peddling along.

 

I have been concentrating on Road Cycling over the past couple of years & have been enjoying such rides as the Bike SA Grand Slam's and such like.

Im currently looking for a lighter, faster machine to help me climb a little better, with any luck, I may get a new Cervelo R5 by Xmas.  I have got hooked into the speed bug !

I noticed that you have just ridden 130 something Km this weekend. BIG ride !!!

Maybe I'll have to pop down to the city and ride with the folks at CPG again one day...

Pete.
