6am NRR:
Oof. That took some effort. The stats tell me I averaged 170bpm for the ride and generally I felt like I was lacking legs. Sitting in was ok, but step out into the wind, or worse yet, roll through the front and I was in the box.

After my first two times at the front put paid to the idea I might roll turns today I sat on and waited for the sprint, but as we roudned Ormond Esplanade even that became doubtful.

Post ride coffee I picked up my bike to roll home and noted a noise, I knew what it meant, but if I told you what it was it would ruin the surprise. I gave my front wheel a wiggle then span it to make sure it was rock and roll, it was. I gave the back wheel a wiggle then spun it... it stopped almost instantly. It's possible that the brake had moved when I leant it against the wall, but it may also be the cause of my legless feeling. I suppose this weekends rides will tell.
