Eleven!

I guess that technological improvement is predictable in the current age but a couple of weeks after I decide to upgrade and get a bike with a ten speed cassette, Campagnolo up the ante. See here http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech.php?id=/tech/2008/news/06-04 . Reminds many of Nigel Tufnel in Spinal Tap





Meanwhile, interest in the long distance cycling blogger ride (LDCBR) is high so I guess I just need to organise it. Any suggestions to where and how long? I'm initially thinking border country and about 200km?

Border country, 200 odd km??? I'm thinking Khancoban to Thredbo return. It's only 214km so a lazy 8 hours should knock it over and leave plenty of drinking time.

Hmm, makes the alpine classic look like a walk in the park.

I don't reckon I'll be up for a ride any time soon. The airfares kill me and every time I fly to the mainland my bike gets damaged in a new and interesting way.

If you were a real cyclist Dave, you'd ride to the start.
