Saturday Jan 20 #

Road cycling 1:15:55 [3] 28.75 km (2:38 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Ride to City Beach for Metro Series event, via Nedlands and Cottesloe.

Orienteering 39:40 [3] 7.0 km (5:40 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

Metro event on the bike - start was a bit hurried as I got there later than planned. Went to 12 along with most of the bikes it seems, but then they all went North, while I went South to 13 - my first mistake. The second mistake was immediately afterwards, not continuing South, but heading up the Eastern side of the Northern controls. This error was amplified by 28 - firstly coming from the North it was not only not on the feature, but well hidden. Those coming from South would have ridden/run past it. The other thing about 28 was that I then had a long leg to 27. 15 to 19 was not much fun on a road bike, I would have been faster going around by road. Hampered by sweat and sun in my eyes for the last 4-5 controls - had meant to put a cap on, but this got forgotten in the rush at the start.

12-13-1-10-9-8-5-7-6-4-3-28-27-26-16-21-22-23-25-24-20-15-19-18-14. Forgot to start Garmin in the start rush.

Road cycling 1:58:11 [3] 43.2 km (2:44 / km)
shoes: Bike: Beemer Auto

For once the Bureau got the forecast right. On looking out, and viewing the radar I couldn't see any drizzle, and couldn't believe that if there were to be any, it would amount to 4-5mm. Sure enough though, just after starting out the drizzle arrived, and just didn't stop. At times it got heavier almost to the point of being rain.

Had planned to go to Shelley Bridge, then meet PP on my return to Canning Bridge and continue around the river. On getting to Canning Bridge, we decided just to go straight home. Bikes, helmets, shoes, all our clothing and our legs and arms covered in fine road dirt. Had shower then watched the TDU.

Sunday Jan 14 #

Road cycling 2:03:44 [3] 46.75 km (2:39 / km)

West Coast ride, sans Reabold loop, but added South Perth and Burswood. PP with me until Claremont - sneakily said she was going home via the rail path, but then stopped at the Goods Shed for coffee as soon as I was out of sight.
