It's funny whilst I have been working enthausiastically for the last couple of months towards the concept of being able to ride my beloved stead I'd forgotten just how enjoyable it was to be able to do so....
Its amazing just how liberating it is..
I mean okay sure joining my Lead Out colleagues riding through the Dandenongs as my first ride on Aussie roads, since my fall may not have been my wisest move but what better way to find out if I was still capable of riding up hills and more importantly descending them without fear or a desire to reach for the brakes!
So how'd I go - well take a look at the Strava report for your own analysis - but I thought not to bad all things considered. I even felt that there was plenty of gas in the tank for the 1:20 climb.
