All the same photos you see here except on a different social media platform for you to follow/lurk/whatever, how exciting!
A couple of people asked what rides I do and where I go. I ride the same route heaps due to it having very few traffic lights to interrupt whatever zone I’m riding in. The kind of rides are determined by my coach, I just ride at whatever watts my training plan says.
Anyway here’s a link to my Strava for you to lurk/follow/whatever
Photo dump from last week and it was a good one! Rode my track bike about town a lot, avoided a serious crash at motorpacing (only to crash on gravel a couple days later). I like the weird warm but wet weather so I can wear over shoes but no warmers. Rode some radical unsealed roads and trails with my friend Paul so we could visit Rich who was doing an everesting attempt. We also tried climbing literally the steepest road I have ever seen, gravel and at about 35% gradient. There was no way I was making it up on an 11-25 with 19mm tyres!
Half of me said slow down, the other half said to keep going harder… See if you can go faster through the corner. Apparently I could not. Related: riding fast + 19mm tyres on gravel is quite exciting.
Looks like a wheelie but isn’t, more like a track stand.
Kit and I swapped bikes for a bit today, that thing is so damn fun. Now I want a single speed with discs and fat tyres.
Melbourne’s most handsome courier snapped this photo of me today while I followed him around from job to job. This is by far my favourite reco ride.

Zero motivation to ride. Time for some skateboarding!
Stuff that made me happy today.
Finally have matching training wheels on my track bike! Took me so long to get the front fixed after someone put their foot in it while racing.
Morning coffee hangs with Wade the weiner dog.
The best part about racing last night was the ride there with @kitchristopher The next best parts were the Dr Pepper and jellybeans.
