Main group caught up to cheese early in the piece today..... then a fast take-off (by a huge group) at the Springvale Rd (Whitehorse) lights left me on my own!
Thanks to the guy who rode with me along Doncaster Rd from Springvale Rd (the "other Springvale Rd")! (Sorry I wasn't sure who you are: with so many MRR riders I don't know many names yet.) In case you are reading this though, I saw you pulled over to wait for me at Shoppingtown Hill, and I was at the intersection by the time you set off again (a red light) so I assumed you couldn't see me, due to the traffic lights being not quite at the top of the hill, whereas the regroup point is over the crest of the hill
(That used to commonly be the story for me when dropped by the recovery group on that hill lol! I'd be watching them arriving at the top then settting off again, sometimes while I was at the traffic lights just behind them!) Needless to say in this instance though, there was a BIG difference between us in the pace of climbing that hill!
