this didnt work the last 2 times i tryd to post it so ill give it one last shot.
i found out about the thursday night ride that goes through the yarra bike track and thought why not, i met them at the meeting point (funny that) on the track above richmond.
as we all waited there the bunch slowly grew and finally the main bunch came up the hill and we all joined...... um...... well i tell a lie.... as everyone was joining i was trying to clip my shoes in. that put me about 5 meters behind the bunch, realising there was also a head wind i knew id really have to push to catch them.
by now you can all guess what happened
i kept up with them up the hill just hanging on, down the hill they kicked my but. not long after that id totally lost them. after id pulled myself together and wiped away the tears i thought why not keep going so i made it all the way to hoddle st and rode on the st kilda then home.
so back to beach rd, im gona make that ride and finish it, hopefully a bit further up the bunch this time though.
