FATHERS DAY CLASSIC - BEACH CRUISE


The day we have to attend a lunch allegedly in your honor, at a location not of our choosing, to eat not our favorite meal. The day we receive gifts we neither wanted nor needed or could possibly be seen in public wearing. The day our favorite pass time of lounging on the couch drinking beers, watching TV, and having a nap all afternoon will defiantly no be on the agenda.

SO FARK IT! We'll be escaping the house to spent a few precious hours of OUR day doing our favorite hobby; riding, staring at our middle aged mates sweaty arse's, talking shit about nothing in particular.

Come for a beach run, have a brew and your favorite mid morning snack, before resuming your pre-arranged itinerary of celebratory Daddy day tasks.

MEET 8.00AM - HINDMARSH SQ 
ANZAC HWY - OUTER HARBOR - GLENELG FOR COFFEE

(Route re shuffle to enable the whipped ones to peel off and get home on time for lunch)

Sunday Ride - Hahndorf by popular demand

Sundays Ride is Hahndorf via River Roads return to be decided at Coffee


It wasn't always Hahndorf we were going to visit the Ladies at Cudlee Creek. However when we discussed this at Coffee, Frank expressed a deep yearning for "Hahndorf Junk Food" at Ottos. I then mentioned that Dan had a issue with Otto's and we had swapped to Cafe Assiette.  

I have dodged the decision. Hence by popular demand the Ride for Sunday is:
  • Meeting times as follows 
    • 8:00 am in the City
    • 8:30 am at the Tollgate (bottom of the freeway bike track)
    • 9:00 am at the Bollards
  • From the Bollards via Mylor and River Road to Hahndorf
  • The Bastardi who wins the sprint to the 50kph sign on entry to Hahndorf decides where we eat and caffinate
  • We will then discuss the ride home. Options are
    • Out and Back
    • Gumflat Road 
    • Germantown Hill

'I will be dining at Otto's!' -FS

GET THE GRIP

via www.cyclingweekly.co.uk

The Conti 4000s, long trusted by the Bastardi faithful, with long term testing proving its versitiliy, with great ability to keep the rubber side down and the inner tube glass free. Well here is some less indicative evidence of its performance, check this site out: www.bicyclerollingresistance.com




More then you'll ever need to know about tyres but interesting.

Of note 4000s's perform exceptionally at lower pressures (60-80psi) compared to other brands. But if you want that extra watt for your TT's go to 100psi (negating the fact that no one weighs 42.5kgs with bike, and I'll be farked if i can be bothered figuring out what the load coefficient is).

Also of note the 'S' is worth 2 watts! (at 42.5kgs load).

Thank god for Germans hand making our tyres! Get the Grip! Skids for days!

This is why you dont buy french tyres:
