31.37 mi on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] Call for midday ride was answered by Napalm on FB. Met at the servo on Bridges Rd where he suggested we ride Sugarloaf. Ummm no thanks, but he wouldn't listen, so we headed for the Loaf. I was stressing out so much I didn't have time to complain like I usually would, my HR was high just thinking about it. Started to drizzle with rain at Cameron Park but thankfully stopped before the climb. Napalm rode with me, at the start I said, "is this it?" he laughed at me, said "the ramp" was coming up and once I did that I'd be right. All I could see was the road getting steeper and I was stressing, especially once I realised I had no gears left!!! Made the ramp and Napalm said he'd meet me at the top, I came around the last corner which is freakin steep and he had his phone out for pics, oh no!! Had a drink and took the long decent down where I realised just how bloody steep that Loaf truly is. Just before we made it to the bottom the heavens opened up, I mean it was flogging down sooooo hard it was hurting my skin. Trying to breath through my nose meant breathing in rain water, the roads were greasy and it totally sucked!!! Headed home via a few cycle paths from Glendale to home where I had a very long hot shower to thaw out my feet, I was sooooooo cold. Very proud of myself that I finally attempted it, now all is left is to smash Gruplet off Strava. Thanks for the torture Napalm :)
20.75 mi on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] Napalm cam over to watch girls so I could get a ride in. Was really happy to be out until a P plater and truck near cleaned me up on Park Ave. I yelled at her and still have a sore throat, I unclipped my left foot to try and kick the crap out of her stupid little car but didn't make contact. She's lucky she didn't stop as she'd have a pretty smashed up face tonight. Nearly went straight back home but decided to keep going. A quick way to elevate my already elevated HR.
20.57 mi on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] Headed out for a spin on the Love Track before the rain came. First ride on my road bike with the Garmin, it is pretty cool!! Passed Guru coming up the climb.
11.25 mi on Norco Faze 2. [Cycling] Hurt my thigh yesterday but it felt a bit better today. Headed into Glenrock for some training with Napalm trying a few new tracks which I didn't like very much. Had another crash basically in the same place as last one.
