Not so fun at the beach though... :paranoid:

Sounds like you had a great ride - and what a day for it! :) I contemplated taking the roadie out for a spin because I'd already ridden my other two bikes today, but then I thought I'd get heaps of washing done instead :blush:

Fuck I miss riding Makara road loop like I did all summer long :(



Your inlaws must be so thrilled that you graced them with your sweaty lycra-clad presence :D - You and them must either get on exceptionally well or not at all :D

They :love: me! :D

Plus my wife and sons were there, so I was guaranteed of at least a reasonable reception... :paranoid:

Went for a ride up North East Valley, over the top of Mt Cargill to the other side, then back and over again. 2 hour spin, mainly hill work :)
While I was sitting at the lights on the way home, another roadie pulled up, I said G'day and was completely snubbed (I probably smell to be fair) and then when the lights went green he went for it...
Sad.
Especially when his 'going for it was so slow... and after I passed him he tucked right in behind me on the drops.

People are weird.

Hell even an outdoor one there would be better than having to share Denton Speedrome with the reet thugby players in Hornby (this is a club where the boys stand around & have a fag before running out - I shit you not).


Sure by the time the orange boy had a go the fag was quite worn out.

Heard from Fergie. He enjoyed his night of drunken MTB trail riding & sodomy in Hanmer. He particularly enjoyed riding a Specialized & will now be frequenting the MTB forums. He is a bit embarrassed after he walked out into the hot pools there in his Speedo's only to find the pools had been designated an underpants transformation area. :crazy: :blush:


Sodomy? Sure that store is on Colombo and Tuam.

i have been hitting the indoor trainer as i am under strict instructions not to be out of contact at the moment, have discovered the wisdom of having a fan directed directly out me while riding!

looked awesome day for a good long ride though :) your looking pretty euro in that photo oli!

Still in a holding pattern, Joel? Best of luck, mate - can't be long now. :)

Yeah, this summer has been incredible for riding and, best of all, I've been able to actually ride some decent k's at times. I'm not fast but I'm starting to lose a bit of weight and I'm feeling strong enough to knock out 3 hour rides without melting down/getting sick. :D

The pics were taken as I was riding, so I'm stoked I don't look like a complete fool! :paranoid:
