I feel like I should start fulling finger a bit with the riding, since I've taken a few months off doing any "training", and a couple of events loom in the new year. Hit up Makara hill x 10, then round the bays with Mts Vic, Crawford and Albert thrown in, before heading back to K-town. A bit under 3,000m climbing and some reasonable sunburn. Great day to be out :thumbsup:

Not quite road, not quite today, not quite me doing it ... BUT ...

There was some fantastic racing at the velodrome on Tuesday evening and - check this out - who says you can't kick butt wearing baggy shorts? Awesome performance by Aaron Anderson!!

I stopped at the intersection just down from my house just now. Pulled up to a complete stop from a sedate pace and way inside "my" side of the intersection.... And the roadie coming past a second or two later still felt the need to scream out "CAAAAAAAAAAR TOOOO THE LEEFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" to his two buddies :lol: That guy is gonna have a sore throat tomorrow if he's going to point out every single car on the road :D

Another primo day in the Welly town. Evening rides don't really get much better than tonight (or last night)... :)

after a few days rest I enjoyed the stunning weather and surfed the southerly home last night, 'cept it turned into a headwind around the haywards and through to Brown Owl and deflated me a bit :)

However jeyboi told me I was still too lazy this arvo so I tried harder this evening (he did give me the good news that it still a southerly, not the predicted northerly so I was happy). I also had a help from my mate MD who ripped my legs off. End result...almost broke the 2hr mark to Waikanae, reaching the railway crossing at 2:00:32 GAH! would have made it if we hadn't been held up by a car on the aka's descent :crazy: didn't seem fair, we pulled to the side for him on the way up!

I got out and about in the breeze today. Headed round some streets in Wadestown, then out and up Korokoro/Normandale and down Sweetacres to Hill rd. Turned around, and returned the same way to Korokoro, before a drag back into town with a meaty tailwind. Good fun.

Nice little 50 km at 5.30 am this morning. Big weekend on the bike so a bit of a recovery ride out on the flats . . . . .

Those Korokoro/Normandale hills are fun. Trying to stick with Tosh, Henry and Sam Raphael up Sweetacres after Hill Road was the first time I ever hurled on a bike. :D

Yeah, they're cool fun alright. Sweetacres is steeper than Horokiwi too, which surprised me! Thankfully it's not as long...
