Melbourne-King Lake-Yarraglen-Kangaroo Grounds-Melbourne:
I woke up feeling pretty stiff in the glutes and hammies, but I'd arranged a ride, I wanted a ride and besides I was awake now so I might as well bloody well do it.

BOM was playing up so I wasn't sure what the weather was going to do. It was a little wet around my place, but I hoped we'd get lucky and stay relatively dry.

Half way to Rosanna Carpark to meet the guys and a message came through "rides off". I decided to go by myself anyway and spent the next half dozen hours plodding my way through the hills of King Lake, Yarraglen and Kangaroo Grounds.

I never pushed hard, other than the A-line climb out of Yarraglen. I decided to use the ride as an opportunity to do long hours with nothing but myself for company/motivation, something that I hope will be valuable during endurance races.
