"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."

The detail from Sunday’s Melbourne Rapha Gents Race.
FYI - top speed was achieved via a twisty 25km down hill
Finished.. Well, due to conditions the organizers changed the route at the end. 6 hours on the saddle, 153km, & a total elevation of 3195m.. >
118km approx. 3.75hrs in the bank, the last 70km solo.. & just got a iMessage from MsX letting me know she has bacon & egg roll for me.. (at The Bunker)
How fast? Faster than it takes to roll a Rapha Tool-Bag ..
Going for a sub 3 min change with no tyre levers.
