St Kilda East - Dromana - St Kilda East:
I helped out chaperone some guys doing part of Round the Bay. There was no hand holding or kissing on my watch!

No, seriously, the group had some pretty varied abilities and fitness, which kept things interesting despite the slower pace. Add in the odd random rider getting caught up in our convoy and I found it to be more of a mental exercise (rather than a physical one) to get down to Dromana and back.

I'm not complaining, my legs and brain aren't still raring to go, so the pace suited my needs as well. Most of the hills I ensured guys kept in contact with the bunch(s), the rest of the time was spent chatting and fantasising about coffee.

It's odd, I've clocked up 200km this weekend and feel like I've slacked off the entire time. Next week, I think all excuses will have to be treated as such, just excuses. Rides will happen, the box will be sought, and I'll signal to myself through action that the season is not over and there are still fitness gains to be made.

ToB is coming.
