Rule #9

If you have ever read Velominati - The Rules of Cycling you will understand the what I am on about. We had long since passed Rule #5 by going out on a public holiday when the weather was really looking shocking. Little did we know that the weather would really turn on us and make this ride one of the most memorable rides ever (for all the wrong reasons). I joined Roy, Mandy, Werner, Natasha, Mark, Jess, Becky, Jay and Bevan for a group ride. Roy took us on some new routes that I had not ridden before - we went out to Sentrarand and then back via the train tracks. Half way though the ride the wind really started blowing and then the rain came. This I can honestly say, was one of the hardest rides I have ever done, by the time I got home (after riding 70km) I was completely wet to the bone and frozen solid. Here are my Strava stats for the ride - whoohoo I got one KOM.

Here are a few photos of the group when we stopped for a puncture (before the rain and wind set in)...

  1. I admit, I have not been on this web page in a long time... however it was another joy to see It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals. I thank you to help making people more aware of possible issues.

  2. Julien Absalon was born in 1980 in Remiremont, Vosges. He is a cross country biker of French origin and has a great track record for winning. Between the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics he won 4 gold medals. Best enduro wheels
