6am NRR:
Given there were only a dozen blokes hanging out in the service lane of the highway, I figured I'd misread the rain radar, but I think everyone was just sick of the wind that's been terrorising cyclists all week.

The problem with having only 12 fellas, is that my sense of guilt/pride/fairness demands that I contribute to the work load, rather than sit on wheels like I actually wanted to do. So, you'd pull off the wheel, heading past 1, 2, possibly 6 riders, to head to the front and chop out the bloke who'd been left stranded. In your mind I always figured I'd drag others with me, that somehow it'd be different for me, and that I wouldn't be left hanging in the wind like the dude I was replacing. I was never special, It was never different, and so I got some good practice and relaxing into the pain.
