Knobby K's Were Needed

After missing the fatties ride on wednesday the mtb was feeling a bit neglected so Saturday meant no hell ride and saw a solo outing on the fat tyres. The roadie has had more than it's fair share with all the hell riding, dandenong's climbing days and early morning great ocean road k's during the heat wave. PS. If you find yourself venturing through Torquay and in need of an energy boost you can't go wrong with a visit to soulfuel cafe for some pancakes, berries and ice-cream



So Saturday, started as the usual boring Lysterfield ride. I haven't been out there for a while and changes are being made due to overuse with new routes popping up everywhere. Twenty minutes in and I decided to extend my ride from quick spin to solo mini-epic. The fire road push through birdlands, the bike track to ferntree gully, the crazy 30% hitting fire road climb to one tree hill and then the sniggle...





...before returning to Lysterfield to finish the park loop and add on a commonwealth games loop.

Two thirds of what will be required at Otways in 6 weeks. On yesterday's form I should be able to finish, how well time will tell.
