    ...well...

    going on a bleve cimbing camp at Mt Hotham (WTF was i thinking???) over the weekend, should be 'fun'. Aim is to beat Bleve up at least one hill :D

    Rolling down hill to Bright to stay night and then riding over to Tallangatta to join up with the GVBR and do general dog's-body work, drink beer (hopefully!), catchup wit a few regional councils and chew the fat with some BV members (or not) and generally enjoy the week. Never been on one of these 'things'.
    I gets to ride one day as a staffer so i picked the 'nasty' one. from Mt Beauty over Tawonga Gap. Only ever done it in the middle of an Alpine CLassic so i think i might do it twice to make it worthwhile.

    For every uphill, there is an equal downhill....

    Unless you start at the top of Hotham, then it changes to "for every downhill there is a more hurties uphill"... Watch out for that hill with "CRB" written on it.. its a magical incline that actually grows longer and steeper as you ride up it...

    see you there!

    Mum tells me I'm not getting enough food for one person at the moment! My scales beg to differ, I'm turning into a damn crit specialist - I've gotta drop 2kgs after the ToB!

    I've got my mouse-proof eski filled with goodies.. might visit Coles at lunchtime and get some communal snacks too. And some ear plugs.. is that snorer dude coming again!? :( heheh

    err, markets, the real markets,if they are close, or approach your local
    greengrocer about discount, especially if you are prepared to order early.
