Just to warm you guys up a bit here is a ride I did today in Aus.
I was speaking to my mate Kev and we decided we needed to do a 100mile singlespeed mtb ride before we went back to work.
With riding slow singlespeeds we started at 3.30am.
Waiting for Kev to ride down the hill
The Bum tree on Bolong Rd between Nowra and Gerroa.
We rode the Kiama Coastal walk which is about 12kms from Gerringon to Kiama and mostly grass and sand.
Playing with the Gopro.
This is what most of the track is like.
The beach shortcut around Warrawong. It was more pain than shortcut. 4.8kms at an avg spd of 13.2km/h and an avg HR of 161.
Kev did it easier as he weighs 70kgs and I weigh 122kgs. He would ride over sand and I would sink in.
The end of the beach of pain.
The Aussie standards approved straw hat.
Almost the end waiting for the train at Kiama after 167kms.
Then it was 8km home from the train station for 175kms all up and just over 9.5hrs in the saddle.
