Well the tour is sneaking up and thought id get in early and organise a little gathering to celebrate this years race. Its a great chance to get together off the bike and catch up with everyone that you have seen or have not seen since the summer riding season. I also think it would be a great chance for those partners who put up with us dissapearing for 4-5 hours (in lycra) every Saturday to join the Tour celebrations. Ill initally need a show of hands and then your hard earned cash!
When > Saturday the 3rd of July 2010
Where > Royal Mail Hotel, 519 Spencer St. West Melbourne, 3003 Victoria, Australia
Time > 6pm drinks for 7:30 meal
Cost > $40 Main Course and Dessert
Theme > French + Cycling
*This is a Lycra free event....
Omerta Trivia Trophy
The highlight of the evening will be the Omerta Trivia Trophy to be awarded to the wining team. Triva is of course to be based on this years tour teams, tour stages, geography of the stages etc so get researching!
I have also organised for the tables along with the menu to be french inspired and am told the big screen will be up and running for some early Tour action, but it wont be the main focus of the evening!
Please let me know who you are and how your brining so I can organise numbers. Places are limited so get in fast.

The poll has again polarized the warriors with the majority voting for leg shaving as being for men, man enough to shave. Of course the voting now has to take place again due to this massive swing towards gayness and the new results will be posted soon. No seriously it may mean that in the summer months more of us try this 'technique' to shed a few grams and stay in touch with the pack, but in the meantime the winter coat is to stay.... Thanks to all who voted and yep we really are taking the big issues by the throat!

It would be fair to say that most of us in the amateur team loathe the idea of crunching hill after hill on a Saturday morning. Well guess what team, the only way we're all going to improve (or conquer our fears) is by doing some basic hill training.
Starting next week (w/c 24 May) I'll be posting times for some mid-week training sessions at the Boulevard. If anyone is interested, please let us know what your preferred days and times are and we'll do our best to accommodate for everyone.
All riding abilities are welcome but I must warn you we'll be taking it fairly slow for the first few weeks... At least! Full session details will be posted later in the week.

For anyone who is looking for a little offroad action on Sunday I am planning on hitting the tracks at Lysterfield. Hoping for a 7:30 start from the top car park however if you get there later then Im happy to meet up for another lap and coffee at Trail Mix. Also the Chase the Sun Series starts at the end of the month - same day as the Melbourne Roubaix - so if anyone wants my ticket it is theres as I am going to be on the MTB that day. Anyway let me know if anyone is keen.

Thanks so much for your support boys, I made you all proud by riding the wheels of my bike on a hard gear (of course) which are making funny noises now : (
so here I am boys after i had have broken by a whole six minutes after a 270k ride the previous day - the yellow jersey stayed with me the whole way
ahead of peloton catching up to support vehicle
Narromine, all bikes on board heading back to Bendigo 851k, then a further 150k for Alvi
Ready to do more endurance rides. I wish I could say the same for my bike but she sounds a bit sick from my grinding. 2500k count for the last three weeks.... ooops
thanks again boys
