Weekend of Joy....

On Saturday I headed out on the Hell Ride. I am trying to get some extra fitness and this ride is well known to give a rider fitness. Mr Ash Thomas and myself enjoyed smashing ourselves stupid off the front on several occasions, including up Hopes Rise resulting in diminishing the group size to 30 or so from its' original size of 80ish. Too much fun.

Yesterday we decided to have a family ride with a few of our closes friends. 10,000 plus riders turned up. Melbourne sure is keen on riding. I don't think I fitted in because I didn't have a hybrid or a fluro yellow jacket. I have never seen so much mayhem in one ride before.


Jayden and myself covered about 15kms of the new eastlink freeway, while Robyn (on her new bike) rode 60km in her comeback ride with her sister Bev.


This is Robyn's new bike. I decided I would upgrade her old KHS soft tale in an attempt to get her keen to hit the trails (or at least bike paths). It's a nice and light 16" 2005 Kona Kula Primo with some of my old race bike bits (XTR Dual controllers and disc brakes). She found it a joy to ride and it sure does look the part.

Was he the one riding in the g-string with beaded hair style?

Those Judy folks look very familiar!! Apart from all those people around I'm guess the road was bloody smooth!
