And for those who may not have heard, I've had an interesting time over the last few months recovering from some health issues.

I've been getting about on the roadie but this will be my first "proper" ride on dirt for about 5 months. It's also a "**** you" to the unimaginative specialist who said "find another sport". Smiling

Pace will be steady. Looking to put some base kilometres in the legs.

Come and say g'day. We haven't had a social ride for awhile
