Final week in Aus..and the forecast is rain rain rain

I'm starting to have nightmares about   the Sportful Dolomiti gran fondo which  I'll be riding on June 18th, in just a few weeks time. 

As an old lady I'm only allowed to do the shorter (!) ride of 133.8km and a squillion,000 m of  climbing ..last year I took >6 hours which included 2 punctures..I'm hoping to do something similar this year but without the punctures!   

to add insult to injury the final 400m is technical, on cobbles and with a 150m very nasty heave  up to the finish line....

so I've started once again to ride the  climbs around where I live and this is what I saw on the way to the top of one the other day

only in Aus!
