A couple of short loops on the SS yesterday at Totara Park. Im sure this SS lark is good for me ( keep telling yourself something enough and it must be true ).

yesterday: Karori to Kaukau and back via the Chartwell substation - absolutely brilliant weather conditions, interesting variety of track surface, and it's great that they have so many cattleproof bypasses at all the gates now, there was only one stile where I had to dismount.

The longest day ride less than a fortnight out http://www.everydayhero.co.nz/longest_day_ride_2011

And with way too few bigger rides under my wheels, headed out on Saturday to put the clock on some of the locations I might be covering at the end of the day.

First I headed over to Miramar for a couple of laps. Mt Vic for the SuperD course and some other random tracks. Barking Emu (Red Rocks + Tip Track was less appealing by that stage).

I figure 15 hours will hurt. But is do-able (in a messy sort of a way).

The rock garden was bangin'.... pretty much everything else was not worth the climbing required to get there.... haha.

Oh, I also should've probably had a granny ring too as opposed to the 32T single ring I had.... :crazy: :blush: :cry:

I'll probably just marshall again.... :thumbsup:

Figured I'd make the most of the good weather before it packs up.

From Wellington, around Petone/Eastbourne/Pencarrow Head, over to the Coast Road, north to Wainui, one lap of Jungle/Snails, back up Directa/Jungle, north along Labyrinth/Towai Traverse, ECNZ road, down to Stokes Valley, up to Kelson and Boulder Hill in Belmont, Belmont Road, Round Knob, down to Takapu Road and back to Wellington via Ngauranga gorge. Bit shy of 150km I think.

Shattered now. Should have put more sunscreen on.

Was out for about 8 hours, though that included a reasonable pie break in Wainui. Pseudo-preparation for the Kiwi Brevet - still unsure as to whether I'll be able to do it, but better get some miles clocked up in the eventuality that I do.

Jebus Andy. You're making me feel like a whiny little girl (which is exactly what I was yesterday with 10km to go, heh heh).

checked out the opau bay loop @ westwind makara. Rode the loop both ways -preferred the opposite to tracks.org.nz's suggestion - it's a fun downhill. Then went for a blast down bunkers ridgeline track to makara beach. Great little ride for something different.

so much potential up there.
