Bal group ride (supposedly) on a hot 35 degree day.
I went early & Michelle arrived as I took off, so I said I would loiter a bit and she would catch.
Bal - Swamp rd - Stentiford -Collins Hill rd - Basket Range - Ashton - Marble hill - down Corkscrew - UP Gorge - Cudlee creek café = 45km, with 800m climb in the first 40km.
CCreek - back to Tippets rd over to Gumeracha hill climb - Gumeracha - climb to Kenton Valley & then finally some down to Charlston - bikepath to Woodside - Balhannah.
Unfortunately my map memory was bad and I was looking for Collins rd straight off Swamp, whereas Stentiford leads onto Collins....so I sailed onward towards Lenswood for several kms before retracing my steps.
I sent M a txt but she didn't look at it until she got to Ashton... so I had a solo ride. Faster guys caught me at Ashton but I knew that I couldn't go downhill fast like them so didn't latch on. After the café I was still eating my banana when Michelle & 3 others took off, so waited and went with faster guys to Gumeracha and then toiled on back solo.
Lots of climb but legs didn't feel too bad, with the exception of the Gorge rd climb, which they don't seem to like - 10.11mins.
