Short CX ride today. It was really interesting, because we where testing 36c Kojack's and 46c Specialized Amadilo tyres. Those 46c are so much fun on a stiff alu frame with a carbon fork and 2.5 bar. I'll go for 3bar on wednesday. They are very grippy, but a bit heavy. But so far. I really love them.
Some goofy pictures :D

That second picture is strangely mesmerizing. I kinda sorta want to have a large version of that, but I can't explain why exactly.

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.

Road near Piedmont

Nice pics Dalai; I've been meaning to get over that side of town for a ride for a while but only ever make it as far as Mount Macedon (i'm in Geelong).
These are the roads the Warbie Road Race is ran on I presume? I was hoping to race but scared of making that leap to VRS (I'm pack fodder club B on road).

Both Mt Donna Buang and riding the Reefton spur over to Marysville via Lake Mountain are well worth the drive. From Geelong though you will almost need to make a weekend of it! Especially if they get the proposed World Trails built MTB area happening... :thumbup:

This is on the Warburton road race course. The first photo is in the correct direction of travel - just east of Piedmont. You should have entered - not big fields unfortunately...

If you want to head out this way, message us and I can give you the guided tour once my collarbone heals.

That's the top of Old La Honda road, one of the iconic climbs on the SF peninsula.

Earlier this week, a quick trip over to Flanders in my days off from work. Looking down the Nokereberg, we stayed pretty much right at the bottom of this.

New to the forum.

Had a 40 odd km ride around Sydney this afternoon.

Windy and cold... By Sydney standards anyway (12.9C... Yes I know HTFU).
