Just updating this list.
Heather (PennyR's sister)
and both parents
smc & ms smc - on a tandem
Doug (happyintas), and my friends Ben, Anne, Toni, Robert, Judith, and Kim
Unfortunately I've had to pull out due to a minor calf niggle which has prevented me from doing any hill training. My sister Heather will take my place. (Don't worry Dave, she won't be "missing a wheel"
... she'll ride her hybrid, and mum will ride mine.)
After seeing the local physio twice, I saw Emma Colson at OPSMC this morning - who was stumped over the cause of the pain for a while!!!
I'd brought my hybrid bike with me (so I could do some errands on the way home), so she put me on the windtrainer. It didn't take long for her to identify the possible problem - CLEAT POSITION!
I have narrow hips, but the cleats were on the inside of the shoe (which made my clipped in feet too far apart). Now Emma has adjusted the cleats to the outside of the shoes, so my feet won't be as far apart.
So hopefully that will solve the problem, and my calves will settle down soon
So looks like the Melbourne Summer Cycle, Murray to Moyne and MAD Ride aren't out of the question yet (which I was worried about) - just the hills in Tassie.
I hope all of you riders have a wonderful time. I look forward to hearing reports when you get back.
