Extending the Tuesday loop - 12:05
Most Tuesday mornings I head out with a bunch of other mountain bikers to do
the Cotter/Uriarra loop on a
road bike. This being the height of holiday season I expected there would not
be many others there this morning. In order to avoid riding in the heat of the
day I decided to head out early anyway. No one else rocked up so I headed off
by myself with my mp3 player on, I decided to extend the loop a bit today as I
did not need to be at work around 9am.
Last year when Allan was off work for a
while he was trying to talk a bunch of us into doing Condor Creek during the
loop, this is not really viable as it would have us returning to town around
8:30am rather than around 7:45am (an extra 10 KM with some climbing). However
as I was able to do a choose my own adventure style ride this morning I went
out to the end of the bitumen up past Condor Creek, then I also headed out to
the end of the bitumen past Uriarra Crossing, and eventually returned to civic
at 9am on the dot for a coffee and then home.
A most pleasant way to spend the morning, turning the cranks over by myself,
not pushing the pace at all.
