Thursday night sees a bunch ride depart from Chandler Highway at 7pm. I did this ride last week and there would have been at least 130 riders and it was a fast ride.
Last night there were considerably less riders and the pace was a lot slower but it is always game on when the road tilts skyward. Whilst the climbs are neither long or steep, you have to dig deep to stay in the front bunch. This is a great ride as you cannot get this kind of speed in your legs in your normal training rides, there is something about about a 100 riders which makes you work hard.
So I knocked off 90kms in just under 3 hours, now I just have a big ride on Sat morning, more details to follow and then that will just about top off the training for the Odessey. Although before we get to Forrest I have a few adventures to have in NZ next week.
