"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."
Ernest Hemingwayemail me if google hasn't got the answer..
Monica got a new saddle & lost some weight .. FYI 6.8kg as is (cages, pedals & tool-roll).. & Sophia is even lighter..
SURPRISE - you never know who you may meet in a hotel lift .. First ride in HK with some RaphaDudes..
Don’t tell MsX 😉
Thanks for the ride Monica, sorry I can only take Sophia with me to Hong Kong this week to tackle the PEAK with some Rapha gents.
Oops. According to STRAVA.com I am now KOM for the Sunday ride (thanks to the tight bunch today)..
As for the St George club, R.I.P

Some match their kit to socks.. I match my bike to socks & shoes..
Adding some TassiDisco to Sydney every day @4shaw_dion Socks!
HED Ardennes in for spoke replacement, so out come the MAVIC CCSR ready for tomorrow.. Most definitely a #FirstWorldPelotonProblem
Only having one tool-bag & swapping every day is a chore 😉
But a good idea as this ensure the roll is tight & secure as they do have a habit of loosening up.
No one in the bunch likes to wait around as one collects their toys..
Time put away Sophia..
The sun was up early & the hills were good this morning. 16 PRs good..
