Melboure - Arthurs Seat - Mt Eliza - Melbourne:
Ian missed the entry for his road race but needed to be out of the house for a while, so a plan was hatched to go visit Portsea and get 200k in the legs.

With a bit of water on the road and all day to ride we decided against sucking on the road grime spewing off the back of the Hell Ride, and instead just rode two up.

By the time we rolled past Mornington the idea of a 200km out and back seemed less exciting, so we subbed in a trip up Arthurs seat and a visit to my parents to scoff down some home made baked treats.

P8280001

The going up Arthurs was a grind, Ian only had on a 21, so to ensure it was fair I left the chain halfway down my cassette (17t-ish). Up through the cloud to a cold misty top, then a quick u-turn and a fucking tentative trip back down.

D: 166.3km
