Re: Sunday Waterfall bunch ride

even now the different bunches hardly seem to co-mingle or talk to each other so I've answered my own question. I think this is largely an effect of the age differences. Also, the focus required to succeed as an elite rider filters out a lot of interactions which are "superfluous to requiremen...

Re: 2010 Gong Ride Sun 7th Nov - Team DHBC

Sounds promising. As a young man we used to have races (in cars, in neutral) down Black Mountain in Canberra to see who would hit their brakes first. Somewhere like this would be great for the event. A long downhill with some excellent corners + little traffic and no other entry points....

It's not exactly sarcasm, it's just another way of looking at it. And anyway, Hoy said as much afterward as it turns out. Once he showed english he was beaten he expected him to pull up.

Saturday looks a bit iffy. 45km/h westerly winds! Sunday winds westerly 30km/h to push us toward the coast, moderating and moving south-west after lunch to push us thru the RNP.
