Seen on today's ride:


is it flotsam, jetsam or an entry for "best decorated bike"?  nope I guess it was retrieved from the flooded Dandenong creek.


an Ibis.

Other bits of news:
  • Earlier this week I had my power meter re-calibrated and discovered that it had been reading low by 6%, which means I've been working harder than the numbers were telling me...yay!
  • All my holiday plans are sorted and now I have to work out whether the exchange rate is going to be good or bad for me...ie when should I change money...now, in a month's time or when I get there.  The results of the Italian election are a bit critical for the Euro methinks.
  • After looking at the profiles of a couple of my European races (their idea of "flat" is not the same as mine!) I decided to do something about my strength /weight ratio...so far I've lost 3kgs and am looking to lose another 3-4kg by August.  As a friend "kindly" said to me...you'll look at least 99 if you lose that much!!! 
  • My training is going well..and I have another TT race this weekend.


  1. Glad to see you saw a few things since it was a cruisy ride today!
