Go Gerro!

Simon Gerrans rocked up to the St Kilda Cycling Club crits today. He’s just returned to training after a break and wanted to spin his legs. For most of the race he sat towards the back of the pack but we all know he could’ve won if he wanted to.

He had the decency to look right at me with a small smile on his face before the race started.

I rolled another 80kms this weekend. To Mordi and back. When I got to the turnaround point at Mordi, it was very tempting to lie down on the grass and have a nap. It’s so nice to be out riding when the weather is good.

80kms is good but I have to get some more K’s in my legs otherwise Scotty’s Ride isn’t going to be possible for me. I’m kinda wondering if I should reassess my idea and try for a shorter ride, like the 120km version of Amy’s Ride. But that defeats the purpose of setting myself a challenge.
