I worked a 12 hour night shift so left home at 10:15am in a nice 22c and wearing my lightest riding gear by the time I reached Macquarie Pass I was regretting my choice of gear, it was 16c and I had my heated grips on #2, I arrived at 12:15 and got to watch the other pair ride around in circles looking for the pub
After lunch we followed Gleeful over to the coast, I like his style, slowdown for nothing & nobody !!!
After a night on the coast being entertained by Bruce and Gerrard with a few drinks I headed west to Rolex, at 11:30am it was 29c and the light riding gear was doing it's job.
By happy hour time at the pub it had reached 36c and all safety gear was abandoned for a T and shorts.
It was only when I was in the race with the sheep that I needed my boots on so the rest of the time I stored my boots and socks in the fridge, it made putting them on much more pleasant.
I left Rolex at 6pm on Tuesday, it was 39c but I had the roads to myself and made a mental note that I should do many more evening rides it was fun, by the time I got back to Macquarie Pass it had cooled to 27c and was getting dark, I stopped to add a layer of clothing and to get the biggest gap I could on the traffic in front of me so I could hit the pass at speed, it worked, I practically had the road by to myself, that would be very rare in daylight hours.
I arrived home at 9:30, it was 24c and the pool was just right.
A big thanks to Gleeful, that was a big effort you made to join us, PS; if you want a Sit&Fly seat cover PM me a address I will put one in the post.
We will try and give more notice next time so more can join in. life is short enjoy the ride.
