Track season is over so it is back into the hills.

Headed out on the Yarra Junction - Noojee road today. This road is part of the course that the Victorian Road Series event which I am the race director travels.

I was out there on Sunday as well. Saw a Lyrebird on the Noojee - Neerim Nth road..my first ever. As I slowly reached into my jersey pocket to get my phone he jumped into the shrubs.

How did you find the road? I've driven it a few times but it doesn't strike me as being particularly friendly to cyclists.

Out on the road this afternoon. Been sick the past 2 weeks and not riding much. Pulled out of the group ride as I couldnt keep my heart rate down.

being chased by a Lamborghini? NSX? Or something else, I do not remember.

We rode single file for nearly all the ride. A few cars and motorbikes on the main Yarra Junction - Noojee rd but not one close pass or abuse so I thought it fine. Road surface was reasonable too... The VRS Warburton road race* is out there Sunday week so best to avoid the area on the 4th May unless you choose to race. :thumbup:

*I was the race director till I rode over the cyclist who went down in front on me whilst going 55km/hr at DISC last week... So getting my broken collarbone plated next Wednesday instead.

No, it's the Paint Creek in downtown Rochester. I went to UofM, so I'm pretty familiar with the Huron too!

@Eurperg... Were you running 25's on those gravel roads. Anything get caught in between your tire and fork?

@Calnago, There are some scratches on the underside of the fork, but I think they all existed before my ride.

I rode about 45km gravel, most of it was rougher than what you can see from the pics. (damn road graders) 5/6 bar pressure in 25mm Arenbergs, not a single cut in them. There's 2,5-3mm clearance between the fork and tire. Pic of fork underside here
