Fourth day in a row early out of bed, so at 9.38pm on Friday night?… I’m rather tired.
I met the JBSECT (James Bike Shop Elite Cycling Team) on top of a hill near the pipe bridge (Fairfield) at 6.25am and screamed through a few good loops of Yarra Trails before work. I had thought I knew pretty much all the trails by now but the JBSECT showed me a couple I had never ridden and a couple that I usually do in the opposite direction. Great way to start the day.
(JBSECT = 6am-ers Angels and Gus and their mates, James, Gareth and Dave)
I was in touch with Gus through the day and we arranged to do pretty much the same thing on the way home. We managed to get an hour and a half of so in before my ridiculously big body for a cyclist managed to wreck one more bike.
Gus and I performed our best fix in an effort to get me home but you’re right, it didn’t work.
We were at Studly Park Boathouse at this stage and I rang Karen to come and pick me me up but you’re right, it didn’t work.
So, once again, I entertained myself on the banks of the Yarra until a cab came to pick me up and I struggled through the peak-hour Friday night traffic in a mad taxi rather than cruising the single track on my bike. Fun. At least later tonight Richo dropped around with some of his recent purchases. It was like a big Wiggle/Ribble Christmas.
Hopefully this weekend sometime we’ll put a big hole in The Richo Project.
