Cup weekend

My next challenge!  I will be riding 100km.  Done this before but not up to the top of Mt Buller!  15km climb at 7% gradient.

Today the girls that I will be riding with and I rode to Strathewen, I did a nice 64km it took us 3 hours as we had a nasty headwind on the way home and then got rained on several times.  I even copped some hail on my last bit home.

I'm hoping to get a little more done of my quilt on my day off tomorrow but I am working on Cup day.

Here in Melbourne we are in our spring carnival for horse racing  and on Tuesday the entire nation stops for this race (so they say!)  Bit like some of the big overseas horse races, I'm not going to complain about the extra money!

A lot of people have taken Monday off as an extra day to extend their weekend to 4 days, the roads have been empty and Cole's was incredibly empty, so good!
