Opperman 2009

Have joined the Mongrel Dogs Opperman team again this year and will be doing 364km from Dapto to Parramatta via Goulburn with an overnight stop at Picton. I plan to update progress via twitter so you can share my pain!

Henry, Richard and I did a training run out to Picton yesterday to check out the motel and drop in the deposit. I was another beautiful autumn day, with a low mist in the valleys and mild temperatures. I felt pretty strong and am finding that the new approach of lower cadence and bigger gears is paying off. That and riding a lot more.

Mileage in Kilometres = 1028

Good luck to the Mongrel Dogs!

I'll be our there with the Lancefield Lairs, our numbers depleted from 12 to 8 (or three teams to two) because some folk just couldn't face it again!

That big gear thing works a treat doesn't it? I've started doing it myself lately. Who would have known?
