St Kilda East - Mt Pleasant - Stony Creek - Morilla - Pigeon Bank - Dawsons - Clintons - Mittons Bridge - Hewitt - Flat Rock - St Kilda East:
I managed to convince Jimmy, BJ and Christian to come for a loop of the punchy hills behind Eltham on what turned out to be a fantastic morning.

The weather was great, I felt ok on the bike, and BJ took us down a brand new road that turned out to be amazing. Mittons Bridge which turns into Hewitt, is just past St Andrews and has some views that left me almost as out of breath as the steep pinches.

P4200006

The little Pigeon Bank bonus road (Morilla) rates a mention for being a little bit nasty, though it would be far nastier if done after an inward bound Pigeon Bank.

Ok, that's new roads covered off, back to old roads and my legs. The two roads I pushed on were Dawsons and Clintons and for both I set times similar to what I achieved in November last year. Or in other words, some of my best ever results. I'm happy and pooped. My legs have a glowing feeling and my body, despite being fed twice, is demanding food, and lots of it.
