I said in a previous post I was looking forward to this ride and I wasnt disappointed. I had spent a week earlier in January down in Port Fairy riding, swimming andĀ  enjoying the company of the local riders. I fronted up in GeelongĀ  to participate in the Cadel Evans ride, found my speed group and elbowed my way into the crowd. I looked up and who should be standing next to me amongst the sea of green jerseys but two of my Port Fairy riding friends. We rode the course together and finished in what I thought was a respectable 3hours and 58minutes. I know without them I would have been considerably slower. We got back in time to see the women’s race take off and I hung around drinking coffee with the guys and waited to see the winner of that race come home. I must say as I was watching the men race on the television the following day from the comfort of my lounge room I was glad we didn’t have to ride when the weather turned bad. However I was very glad I made the effort and will plan to be back at this event next year. It may seem from my recent posts that I am spending more time riding than building. Not really true. My visit down the coast had me come home with a frame for repair. I will post about this soon
