    Celebratory Dr Pepper, Chocolate and donut for afternoon tea. I can see how this could get out of hand quickly

    Giro Della Donna - Alberto Contador

    I believe they pay them to come out, and I don't think it is as expensive as you might have thought. You would certainly get a fair few extra regos from the big name. I live nearby and have been riding out to Mt donna almost weekly, very beautiful and a great mountain to test you out. There is no hiding going straight up that beast.

    72.0 - bang on the target weight. Now I need to make sure I don't balloon out again!

    Giro Della Donna - Alberto Contador

    I checked the long forecast yesterday and it was all sunshine and roses. Now it's pouring down rain 😂 Hopefully it clears up. Glad to know you enjoyed it, i think it has been pretty wet in the past - first year in particular?
  6. Anyone doing this next weekend? I'm going and it has really helped motivate me to get fit. Also, Bertie is coming! 2700m of climbing and 106k should be a good day out Anyone not riding planning on coming along and dressing up as a steak 😂 https://cyclingtips.com/girodelladonna

    You would have to wonder about the wisdom of Garmin incentivising the masses to run in temperatures exceeding 38 degrees in our litigious world. Good on them but it seems a bit brave to me! -10 is cold. Respect.

    Geelong 70.3

    Well, I've paid my hard earned and entered! Truth is I'm really looking forward to it, been way too long. Last half was Ballarat in Dec 2015 I think! 😮 Now I've lost some weight and gotten reasonably fit again, bring it on. Just got to work through my running injury with caution. Stupid legs. Last time I did Geelong it was full of jelly fish - not keen for a repeat of that

    You should be more worried about those just behind you. A few of them just need to find their stride in the final stretch! I'm 400g from my target weight and I don't see the point in dropping much below that, so I'll basically bow out. You will pass me on the third leg (month 3) as so many get passed in the run of a tri. Just make sure you don't also get passed!

    WTB - cheap simple gps watch

    Holding the phone while running sucks. Could just get an arm band phone holder from kmart? Of course I think the watch is the way to go as I hate running with things on my body but if she isn't going to use it much then maybe that is the safer bet?

    There are some sick people out there:

    I'm all for more cyclists on the road, just preferably not in one big bunch!

    WTB - cheap simple gps watch

    I'm wondering why her phone would be off? I'd have thought it would be as accurate as a watch, if not more so due to the size advantage for more antennas.

    There are some sick people out there:

    I was thinking about groups on my ride in to work today, and to be honest I think that upon reflection large cycling groups are unnecessary and make it very hard to pass and probably agitate car users the most. I have cycled in some large groups and it did cause traffic issues, whereas when there is 3-4 of you it is very manageable. When I ride by myself I just hug the left hand side and there is heaps of room to pass in most situations and people are generally not impeded and therefore much less likely to be annoyed. What is the real benefit of cycling in a large group of people you hardly know? Couldn't larger groups split into smaller groups for the ride?
