Melbourne - Mordialloc - Melbourne:
I think this ride is called "The Bakery Ride" but that's a fucking generic name, so I'll stick with the generic just saying where it goes. :)

Felt a bit shabby after a couple of beers last night. I know I swore no more beer until after the Warny, but I'm a bad person!

I did a bit of work on the way down, just mashing a big lazy gear. Hit early for the Mordi sprint, kicked to hold off Simon, but got steam rolled by Leigh.

Got straight on the front for the return trip. Kept it in a big gear and try to get the torquey power down smoothly. My first partner fell back around Mentone and I was soon joined by Hayden. We rode side by side through to Black Rock, well by that I mean he had half a wheel in front of me on every climb. At the top of the Ricket's point roller he peeled off with a comment about "you're too strong", and that was that. He's just a natural half wheeler, and a few days off the bike after smashing me on Tuesday had left him flat. Hurting him (even in a weakened state) has made me feel bloody good about where I'm at.
