Surprising but I have no idea what she is up to. Last time I saw her was Elite Nats in January. Isn't she off to ETC?

I rode in the WIND today. Bays - the wind pushed me along to 45ks. Which doesn't sound like much, but i aint into speed in a big way, and i wasn't pedalling hard. Then heading past a fully light up neon wind indicator near Rickys I seriously nearly lost it on to my side. Scary stuff. But fun :).

I have a saying that I have used in my sigs for years, on and off. It's a quote from 5 time Tour de France winner, Jacques Anquetil, and it goes, "There is always wind on the road..."


Well not THIS much wind. :crazy:

The Bays was hard out today, especially Point Jerningham into Oriental Bay...I almost got off my bike 'cos I thought I'd stopped. :0

Hackthorne Road or Dyers Pass to the Sign of the Kiwi, down the hill into Governors Bay, turn left, around the harbour to Lyttelton, up out of Lyttelton to Evans Pass (need to go up one street in Lyttelton, I take 1st left after the tunnel roundabout), down into Sumner and then home.

head out of town towards halswell, then keep following that road (main highway to akaroa), out past motukara veer right and carry on, passing thru little river and cooptown. You'll climb up a largish hill - at the top veer right (signposted 'summit rd') - carry on along this until you hit the end of the road, turn right and descend into akaroa, when you hit the harbour turn right and follow that road back thru duvauchelles, climbing back up to the hilltop tavern, then straight ahead, descending back to little river and back to motuakara. At motukara turn right (signpost for gebbies pass) - climb up over that, dropping down into lyttleton harbour, then turning left to follow the road around to governor bay and a lyttelton, then on up to gebbies pass and straight ahead and down into sumner

That's wrong anyway. Misses out Heathcote Valley.

I huffed and puffed my way around SB's & summit road today. Felt pretty shit but managed to hold on to a team rider from Governors to Lyttelton though. Legs gave out after that :(

I road out to Southbridge today at lunch time it was great how often in christchurch do you get a 1 hour ride up hill. 21 kms out in the hour and 35mins back, I didn't see any other cyclist out, they missed a great hill ride on the flat.
