CX Shenanigans:
It took me almost as long to decide what/how many layers of clothes to wear today as it did to ride over to the guide dogs. We planned to roll out along the yarra trails, which experience said would be positively frosty, but then the forecast for later was for 24°C.

We pedalled our skinny tyred cx bikes along single track, bike paths, and when we realised we were running late to meet Mario at Clintons rd, some bitumen. The pace, regardless of surface was solid, Brad Davies and his mate Ian pulled hard on the front, and it often left me uncomfortable, but I figured like last week I'd warm into it. When we finally tipped into the tight, bumpy single track near Sugarloaf Resevoir, I had the opposite reaction. My told me stories, which made me stiffen up, which made the bumps jar more, which made my back act up more.

When we popped out onto Simpson Rd, I made the call to abandon the plans for more trail, and instead head for home via the road.
