Cycling in Brisbane Australia
I've had a great weekend of riding.
Finally got back to racing and came in second. Happy with that!
The today got a really nice 87kms out to Wynnum, Wellington Point and Cleveland. It was a perfect morning for it, a bit chilly but clear blue sky and the water looked amazing.
How was yours ?
Oh and my legs bloody hurt now!
And the other bit of news....
First magpie swoop of the year yesterday! 28th of July... WTF
Clearly a message for you to get a move on. ;)
Well, it was a good day in the garden. I got sick then I got hurt and I think I have ridden two days in the last month, but I reckon I might just manage to ride in to town tomorrow :D

But none shall see him, for Master Ninja shall be like the wind in the forest.
(How are the injuries, Doc, all on the road to recovery?)
About three-quarters to being OK now - can ride a bike with higher bars now, and probably drop bar bikes next week.
Disappointed though, that I'm not better already, and also disappointed that I'm not as indestructible as I think I am :(
Always takes a bit longer to heal up than you first think.
I've been fighting off ...something... now for what feels like months, no energy, when I ride I'm not able to push any sort of distance. Frustrating. I'm just having to give it a complete break for a few weeks and then kick into it again as the cold air in the mornings haven't helped.
Didn't get out, man flu :(
Sunday looked AWESOME too.
Did some short training rides on Sat and Sunday with the Missus. Set a new Strava PR on a hill near home on Sat and realised I was only 4 seconds away from being KOM. So like a fool tried to beat my time on the Sunday.
Trouble was we didnt leave till 1pm and heat was an issue. Ended up being 1 second slower than my Sat time and got a max heart rate of 100%. Needless to say I was shagged when I got to the top of the hill!
I've got the bloody Strava bug now - Damn you Damien :-)
I also had first maggie swoop on SAT 28/7
