Got the SHITS and loving it.

Six Hours In The Saddle.

Black Candy went on a diet during the week and has lost 1.5 kg with the new wheel set.
As a first timer at Beechworth and not knowing what the trails were like I decide to take Black Candy and test the new wheels rather the the Dualy.

Beechworth MTB Park has some fantastic trails. They flow well but there is an amazing amount of rock that has to be endured.   With 10 km track not muck bigger than a football field and being as technical as it was I started to feel a bit lonely towards the end of the first lap. (No riders on the track in sight either ahead or behind).

After an almost crash on the first lap. Legs in the air bouncing around on rocks and landing on the tip of the seat I believe I may have hurt myself.  The bruises and the pain when I sit down would indicate such.  I might go and see a doctor tomorrow and find out if I have broken my Coccyx (Tailbone).

7 laps later I finish the event 6 hrs ride time, 6.10 elapse time.  77.5 km at an average 13 kmh.  7th place in the Male 40 + Category.

Banned from the bike. Again!

I've been having a problem with doors in the last week. This little one has kept me off the bike for a week as i can't put a helmet on.  8 stitches in total.

Note to self.
"Don't not pick up thing off the floor while standing in the front doorway".

Then 2 days ago a banged my head again on the screen door. Other side fortunately.

Today I scratched my arm on the Microwave door.

Another pointless ride close to home

I have to go for a ride this morning.

Up the hill? Will do that tomorrow.
Into the City? Nah!
The velodrome?  I haven't been there for a while.

Ah! "The Suburban Explorer"
How about I ride every Street on the block and see how long it takes.

It wasn't to hard.  But who would of thought I'd end up doing over 30 km.
Give me a sense of the Garbo's job.
Except they have to do it in both directions and stop every 15 meters to empty another rubbish bin.
