    Jane and I did the full Goldfields Bendigo to Ballart trip over a 3/4 days on the pushys a coupla years ago with Martin doing 1 leg with us, we travellled light with a back pack and motelled it along the way, it was fantastic and would love to do it again.

    Plenty of climbing on Dry Diggings track, not that Ausgofar would notice

    Funny you should say that, I just bought a pair of brand new size 46 Northwave spiders for $65 off gumtree and some brand new dx 647 pedals off eBay for $70. Very happy.....

    So I ride a pushy on weekends and a bit during the week to try (?) to keep fit. How is this ride for a challenge ?
    I had the privelege of meeting Kevin ( the South African rider who came second) in this totally awesome super endurance race. I briefly saw Sarah, the woman who was the only person to complete the race in 2016 and winner this year. https://cyclingtips.com/2017/09/sarah-hammond-doubles-2017-race-rock-win/

    Went on a club ride today. Last night, in my infinite wisdom, decided to leave my spare tube at home... so sure enough had some weird air leak around the valve on my no tubes setup. Had to borrow a tube and spent too much time trying to fix the problem to no avail.
