what a great day.
woke up with a head ache and hung over
threw up before breakfast. yay me!

ate some brekky (not enough) and we got going.
train, easy.

arrived Wenty ready to ride, to find a late starting sleepyhead still getting bits out of his car.

made it the 2kms to Tableland Rd, had to stop for sugar (brekky deficient), nearly bailed. soldiered on.
got going, what a blast of fun that was down to the part where I got a flat tyre.
oh dear, and crap. me parts? zip
mate parts ? they're in the glovebox, d'oh

Preview of the next hill

you get to anticipate what's coming and then you look left to see how you need to get there.

How to get there

you don't get your grind without some heart in mouth stuff first.
guttered and steep and a long grind up to come

The reward

if you get all the way to the end and take the walk down, you get to see Warragamba Dam

Might be easy for some, but the steepness and therefore both up and down are a task.

that was a lot more than expected.

I figured it might be long, it wasn't as long as thought, but plenty long enough.

9am to 5pm is a long day in the saddle.
28kms, two descents, two ascents.

Up Lockyers when you wanted to be up Lawsons was a tad bumma.
But down Lawsons was fun and it eased the hurt.

Sniggling a trail along Lockyers and being too close to see the trail made me go wide on a rock which put me in the loose stuff on the next corner which had me face down in the trail going hmmm.
