This week has been a big week on the mountain bike and the discs in my back are feeling it.
Monday night I rode home via my hoot of a commute. I’ve wacked my head on this branch about five times and it seems to be at a height where I don’t notice it in time before it tries to knock my block off.
Some work training days on Wednesday and Thursday meant that I got off a bit earlier than normal and was able to head out and give Han’s Loop a blast a couple of days in a row.
Three days in a row on the hard-tail have me walking around with a stoop like an old man!
Thursday arvo I took the road bike the long way home via Lower Plenty, Mt. Pleasant Rd, then Kangaroo Ground-Warrandyte Road for a bit of a hoot down my favourite bit of bitumen on my own (a bit like the last couple of times with the 6am-ers Horny!)…
Then this morning I’ve been out to Smith’s Gully with Mick and Al for a rip around the magnificent single track of Smith’s/St. Andrews.
My legs were a bit tired this morning after a pretty big week but it was a fantastic ride on some brilliant trail. Great company with Al and Mick and a fantastic morning in beautiful country-side.
This weeks summary:
- Sunday – 3.5hr road – 6am-ers beach run
- Monday – 1.5hr MTB – Hoot of a commute

An all important week for Alpine Classic and Odyssey prep.
