St Kilda East - Gos(field) catchup - St Kilda East:
I'm not against riding on dirt on a road bike, I'd go so far as to say that one can have a lot of fun doing it, but the exception is descending corrugated dirt. I'd long looked at our little routes and wondered why we didn't just hook down Mithorpe Rd instead of Broad Gully Rd, and save ourselves a few kms and a couple of minutes. We didn't have a reason not to before, but we do now, it so closely resembles a washboard in texture, that my hands are still tingling and making it tough to type this.

Jim and I didn't attack each other much, instead we just kept a good tempo going the whole way around our slightly backwards look, meaning that by the time we popped out of Mt Pleasant, we were shocked at how early it was.
