St Kilda East - Mt Pleasant - Kruses - Pigeon Bank - Dawsons - St Kilda East:
I was already getting myself ready to ride when my riding partner pulled the pin, so I headed out the door for a solo session.

I pushed on the pedals. I pushed on my pain barrier. I pushed on a few thoughts.

After giving myself a nudge on Mt Pleasant, a road that requires intense concentration to keep pushing, I turned for Warrandyte and roads that gave me no choice but to dig. If you don't dig on Kruses, Pigeon Bank, or Alma you're walking. Everything but "smooth" and "power" cease to matter, and in my tired state, that was perfect.
