  1. This was my first thought, especially as they rode up onto her wheel rather than hanging on after being passed. Her actions seem completely reasonable to me, based on discussions I have had with other female cyclists.

    2020 totals

    12,590 kms/430h on the bike 594 kms/55h running Biggest year I have had in-spite of Melbourne's long lockdown.
  3. Yesterday was a 207km 3,000m epic up the dirty side of Donna. Good way to finish 2020 on a high.
  4. There is a one-off episode he did about torture. Don't listen to that anywhere near a meal time.

    Rapha festive 500

    I usually do it. For me it's all about getting 100kms in on the 24th as I likely won't ride the 25th and 26th. That leaves a target of less than 100kms a day for the remaining days. Dr Lane (as seen regularly on Lama's YouTube channel) did the Festive 1,000 a couple of years back. Seems more achievable when you don't have kids.
  7. Got out this morning and did my first bunchie since restrictions eased. Double Mt Pleasant in Eltham for those that know the area. It was great to get the intensity only a bunch ride can generate and then catch up with coffee afterwards. Having brilliant weather as well was just a bonus.
  8. That didn't age well 🤣
  9. Do you actually have to have crashed to exceed the theoretical maximum speed? Back when I was younger and had had less broken bones I only considered myself near maximum corner speed if I could feel the tyres start slipping and then maximum was the point where the slipping was no longer controllable.
  10. I have given up on Contis as I haven't worn out a pair in years, the sidewall always goes first. In my cupboard are 2 x Pirelli P-Zeros which I am hearing good things about.
  11. What about when you have to run uphill? I think it is the Sandringham course where you have to run up the hill to the oval for transition?
  12. It was described on one of the news sites as "Victoria introduces controversial new cyclist road rule". When every other State in Australia has introduced it, I am not sure you can describe it as controversial. Link
  13. Just started watching Long Way Up with electric Harleys

    Le Tour 2020

    The peloton will often choose not to chase the break and just take it easy. If they catch the guy, others will just attack and they may have to chase them because they are dangerous. You have to look each day at what the teams motivations are and then you can work out who will chase and at what point they will chase.
