Road Cycling 5:56:00 [3] 106.0 km (3:22 / km) +1702m 3:07 / km

Michelle dragged me out again...again we went hilly, this time on the premise of meeting Steve & Liz at Mt Lofty. Left earlyish at 7.45am but I still had many close incidents with cars. (Forgot to say that yesterday a tradie turning into a driveway in Stirling hit my elbow...I went & remonstrated with him, to little avail - reported to police)

Home - Norton Summit - Ashton - Mt Lofty - down to Uraidla...many backroads mostly down to Hahndorf. (Saw a couple of friends there whilst grabbing a drink)
To Mylor - Aldgate Valley rd - Aldgate - Stirling - Piccadily - Uraidla - Summertown - Ashton - Norton Summit - Athelstone

I was sitting on 90kms then and felt ok, so I decided I should clock up 100kms, so took myself up Montacute as far as the little PO (supposedly Australia's smallest). Met another couple of friends there (Stu & Glen) so had a chat before heading home.
Lots of climb, for the 2nd ride in 3 days. NS 33

Road Cycling 5:28:00 [3] 103.0 km (3:11 / km) +1487m 2:58 / km

Michelle said we would do a cruisey ride...I would have preferred a beach ride but we headed for the hills and did over 100kms and a massive 1487 metres climb! Longest I have done for awhile, and especially on almost 1 leg. Lovely day 21 degrees I city & 12 in hills.

Home - Norton Summit - top of Greenhill - Summertown - Uraidla - Piccadily - Crafers - Stirling - Heathfield - Leslie Creek rd to Mylor.
Then to Echunga using non main rds which were great...Glen Bold, Berry - Shepherds - Kavanagh... then back using Berry, Glen Bold - Mylor.
Up Aldgate Valley rd to Stirling - Piccadily - Summertown - Norton Summit ...home via Gorge rd & Euride bike shop.

Road Cycling 3:20:00 [3] 66.0 km (3:02 / km) +850m 2:51 / km

Bal group ride.
Was raining hard when we were meant to start so waited 10mins for a break in the weather. Got 5 mins down the rd and it became quite hard again. Gerry returned to the nearest café! Rest of us went, with MC waiting for sluggish me. Came across the others later as Ricky had come off descending at 60kph+.. Not injured too bad really.

Bal - Verdun - Bridgewater - Aldgate - up to Carey Gully - up Deviation Rd - down Collins - Tiers rd to Woodside - Mt Torrens via bikepath - Springhead rd - bikepath back to Oakbank. Then I went exploring to south up a rd that didn't got thru (except on a dirt rd), so came back & went up Beasley which did a nice square loop (& 2 climbs) back to Bal.

Knee sore still...perhaps stirred up by massage last night.
Then went to physio and then to a free foam rolling class, where every muscle I rolled hurt a lot.

Road Cycling 2:28:00 [3] 52.0 km (2:51 / km) +105m 2:49 / km
(injured) (sick)

Lovely day of 28+ degrees so did an easy roadie ride after a lunch at Norwood. Did some confusing back streets thru Unley+ before getting to Plympton..then used the lovely 2km+ quiet bike path on S side of airport to Glenelg - Henley Beach. Returned the same way to catch up with a friend at Plympton path to Richmond Rd - Greenhill Rd - Vic Park - Norwood.

Annoying that dark is descending so quickly now...almost got caught out.
