2x Rush Preloop and Shop Ride:
4 hours of sleeping and 4 hours of pedalling. Not idea, but it's what I had to work with.

The forecast was kind of ugly, so I needed motivation to get on the bike for the first time in a few days. I put myself in the hands of DK, I didn't care where we went, I just needed to commit myself to riding with someone so I'd feel the pressure show up.

The 5am meet up was a touch harsh, but the weather was pretty damn good until around 7:30 when the shop ride got down around Black Rock. What wasn't good, or possibly was good, was the pace DK set around the first of our pre-loops. I started riding with him two up, but by the time we got to the Ivanhoe boulevard I was behind him, hoping I'd hang on. The second pre-loop and the shop ride itself were at a much nicer pace. Two up, chatting and spinning the legs through, not terribly exciting stuff, but given how wet my shoes are, I'm just happy to have got a pedal in.
