Going to be in Melbs this weekend with missus and kids for sat night high jinx. She who must be obeyed says"why don’t you take a bike?’ Geez, i didn’t know i had that many brownie points up my sleeve.
So, road or fixed?
Is cbd to 1 in 20 and back doable in an arvo? Thinking roadie here.
Or anyone up for semi organised fixed ride, possibly including a beer or 6 at 99 probs?
If you have a Cycling Australia license, there are some crits on at a good, fast and safe circuit just north of Melbourne on Saturday morning. A few crew from here will be racing and cheering across the various grades.
Gravel grinders sounds interesting? roadie/crabon/tight clearances safe? I don’t mind a bit of dirt. Or perhaps i’ll bring Ken steel roadie. I’m not a beach road or criterium type. I like rolling through the Adelaide Hills for a couple of hours.
I’ll be rolling out around 9 i imagine, but flexible give or take an hour, would prefer earlier if anything. But I’ll be staying out in healsville so you could either bump it to the train around there or ride back solo…
Got in late. I bought the old workhorse Look KX rolling on 25’s . Head out to 1 in 20 tomorrow morn after civilized breakfast in st. Kilda. Look out and say hey, carbon black on black look with kysriums and record. Wearing team o’grady baby blue kit…big ringing it up the 1 in 20! See you Sunday blakey. How long from CBD to start…riding?
That’s the standard route for weekend warriors rolling down to Williamstown for coffee. Bike lanes most of the way and pleeenty of other bikes around so it’s nice and safe. In fact, that’s probably the way I’ll take. Except jump on The Strand when you’re approaching Willy, it’s nicer.
Also, SUNSCREEN! A lot of the course is exposed to the sun and it’s looking like a pearler of a day tomorrow so lather up!
Sheeeeet. Didn’t get there in the end. Got in a quick roll to Malvern East and a Beach road run but time/crook children AND missus, etc transpired to not allow me enough free time.
Had a great ride outta Ballarat heading north following a local group on way back (wed) . Friendly bunch out that way.
I woulda thought all you Melbs (roadie) crew would be heading into the Dandenongs every chance you get?
