My first ever ride more than 10 km was half the RLC 2010, and since then I haven't looked back completing 3 0f the grand slams (I would have done all 5 except for some commitments I couldn't avoid), and amys ride. I only like riding in the hills, so you will rarely find me in the city. I love the hills for the scenery (when you can drag your eyes from the black top for a moment), the ability to find traffic free roads and going down hill fast, "Weeeeeeeeee" *smiling manically*. The only down side is that you then have to ride back up :( A challenge that I am still working on. One day I want to ride with the fast guys but I have some work to do and so I continue.

Yes we are completely bonkers!!

Posted on October 2, 2011 at 1:03 6 Comments

Bobby an AC regular and myself both missed out on doing the Grand Slam 4 this year due to the flu. Over the subsequent weeks we have compared notes on colour of phlegm and general levels of fatugue. But with the  GS5 looming we finally realised to complete the series this week we had better get off our sofas and hit the road. Sadly the day we picked happened to be yesterday with quite a marginal weather forecast.

 

Still we galantly headed out (after having almost hit the…

What is most important?

To win in the short term or hold out for long term gains??

 

This weeks AHVCC race was changed from a graded scratch race to a handicap due to low entry numbers. I guess the recent poor weather has dampened many a training session, so after my euphoric win two weeks ago in E grade i was actually handicappped this race and so set off 6 minutes after my usual competition. On the line with me were John Pfitzner who I had so triumphantly beaten in the last race, Phil Davill, Barry…

A race around my favourite Hills towns, Flaxley, Echunga, Meadows and Macclesfield!

Today dawned bright and clear for my fourth race event with AHVCC. I excitedly went and picked up AC member Juz who had bravely offered to come and hang out on the side of random roads in the freezing hills this Sunday morning to watch me ride. A fabulous support for me cos I love an audience and as it transpired a useful addition to the timing crew (there is always a shortage of volunteers to man the stopwatches!). Fortunately, as I was running late she had her tea all pre-prepared to come…

Andy Capp in Flaxley

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 18:30 13 Comments

Today dawned bright and sunny and I couldn't believe my luck. Simon (my husband) had levered himself out of bed to come and stand on the side of a freezing road for a couple of hours, just to watch me whizz past 3 times. I am reminded that it is only because he loves me and that for no other reason would he even consider doing such a ludicrous thing especially on a Sunday! This meant I felt a lot of pressure to make sure that I didn't waste his time and put in a strong…

Hi Sarah,

Now i know who VOD is!! Dont worry about anyone missing out it will be cool. I am on the central districts cc committee, our goal is to try to offer some low cost eventing for people & introduce them to the club. Trying to boost membership & the likes. Very hard to attract new members, a lot of people just gravitate to port adelaide because that is where the action is.

Good luck with the regatta & will have a chat sometime, I have had very little time to race with the hills vets. When i can there is no racing & up until recently haven't been fit enough to race any opens.

If you hear of anyone intersted in Cyclo's now or in the future I would love to have a chat with them. Just pass on my number.

Hi VOD, Are you interested in a ride in the cyclo?

At 12:12 on August 17, 2011, Gus said…

Oh I see..  got it. I'll link it again to some words... nice.

Hi Sarah, Where and when is the lecture? thanks for sharing, people are interested in things like this.

Hi Sarah

that 10k's up the hill from Mt Pleasant was a bit unpleasant, but yeah, the ride was great, I really enjoyed it. Still a bit of muscle stiffness today.

I amazed at the amout of energy and enthusiasm you have. It is pretty infectious. I'm trying to start getting into the mental frame of mind for the 200km GS ride.  I'll try to start thinking like velo dame.

How did you go on the Williamstown Grand Slam?

Her name is Trinh she is great, but will not have a bar of cycling.  Though the walk did prompt her to say lets hire some bikes and cycle the path. Who knows... Weather permitting I will cycle this weekend.

No grand slam, working on a report. New job is dominating what little life I had.

I would be on here more, but I have such a cycling lame-arse of late that I'm not sure I even need to shave my legs. :)
