Melbourne - Mordialloc - Melbourne: (sorta)
Met a small group of the Stay True/Nacional boys at the bakery for a ride, it was cold but the coffee was helping.

A few moments after rolling out, a mere 200m down the road, there was an almighty whoosh as my rear tyres sidewall was slashed almost the entire way round. I had to tell everyone else to ride on, as I tentatively rode my bike home with a new tube in the back.

So as not to waste a perfectly good (if somewhat cold) day, I grabbed the commuter and hauled arse down beach road. When I saw the guys heading back north around Mentone I flicked it around and chased back on. From there it was pretty sedate, but the fixed nature of my bike meant I got some cadence efforts down the hills.

So not quite long kms, but it'll have to do.

D: 37.2km
A: 135m
