great sunny day on the bike. Planned to meet up with Andy and two of his work mates, Shane and Paul at Hornsby to do 3 Gorges. Didn't train yesterday because of another bout of "food poisoning" so did a lap of the gorges first. was going to take it easy but bumped Glenn Horricks waiting the Berowra Waters Ferry. he is really good on the bike and I had to push to keep up. let him go for the last climb up and met up the guys at Hornsby.
The guys decided to ride to Gosford. Stopped at pie in the sky then continued up the old highway through Summersby and across to Gosford. had a few breaks along the way to wait for Shane who is a novice at big rides. A big foot long Meat ball sub really hit the spot after.
Was by far the quickest I have ridden up the Kilkari side from the cafe to 60sign.8:01 ( I couldn't remember where the official start and finish was on Cycle2max.com.) plodded around the rest. the climb killed me. So happy to get out on the bike, finally a dry day.
