Winter Wonderland AKA Somers in August

Greetings fellow hardy types who lined up Sunday 3rd of August, I’m sure it can be claimed that this group is: “Tough As” (i) I’m sure that the temperature at the start was lower than what Tenzig Norgay and that Edmund bloke had to endure, I know the climb is worse than K2.

A vain attempt at warm up was conducted, next time it’s into the cafe -2 hot chocolates please no marshmellows, waif like figure you know!(ii) To increase the core temperature of course.

At the start everyone is in touch with their botanical side and trying to photosynthesise by standing in the sun, but even the Polar Bears are cold, so ears open, mouths shut and the Chief Comm. passes on relevant points, SBO’s are fresh in minds, 250 mt, keep left, lights -it is still not rocket surgery but some do need reminding. We get the Nellie Dan in front of us and away we go, neutral until the first corner. The majestically poetry in motion of grace and skill that is C grade creating auras of ability and ambitions, soon to be snapped like dry bamboo(iii)

Wise heads get to the front and the first lap is a steady pace. At this point I will claim the SBO’s as the driving factor, not the fact frozen fingers could not change gears or the DQ from Cora Lyn has put fear into the group. The next 5 ½ laps are a blur as groups of fine young riders ably lead by :Mr Black, Mr Purpley Jersey, the other Mr Black and Mr Blue try to up the ante but the largest gap is only every about 200 mt and we roll around as a group. The number of willing workers is proportional to the amount of laps left and by the last lap Mr Blacks x 2 are the only ones at bat, those who think they are combinations of Marcel,Peter,Eric and Mark are licking their lips-it’s got bunch finish all over it!

The bell tolls for thee in C and the above mentioned Mr Blacks x 2 vainly attempt one last pace increase, this lasts as long as a political promise and by the penultimate corner it’s all together this fine weather, at the Blue Castle I notice coffins with skeletons and grave stones in the front yard, I’m sure one is set for me, just as well the alarm is off on heart monitor. I did drive back that way and confirm the above,some people have too much spare time, anyhoot back to race face as the pace goes from tepid to lukewarm and we catch E grade, the 400 series, just on the last bend( I think they need TG reports and unbiased feedback next week Bill!)Mr Purpley, Mr Black x 3 and Fiona-saw her name in results- go coco bananas and zip past E grade, the rest of C grade dawdle around and it’s left to the 5 bolters to fight for the chocolates.

At least I was finally warm and happy that we all got around the SBO’s can be put away.

Many thanks to the Marshalls and Traffic Controllers and as always a greater thanks to Bill, Ian and Lance who front almost every week and do 99% of the work so mugs like me can have a pedal.

Cheers

TG ,see you at Casey

  1. Is a relevant term when compared to a moist lettuce leaf.

  2. My scales still have 3 digits to the left of the decimal point.

  3. All attempts futile, more passengers than a No 67 tram.

TAIL GUNNER'S STATEMENTS OF THE BLEEDING OBVIOUS (SBO'S)

Ref: 641

2014

 

Greetings -after the great insipid day that was C and D grades I am moved to take fingers to a keyboard, and with this great power have jotted a few things down that I find an SBO!

1. Handlebars are critical part of bike control,

2. If your running over reflective Cats Eyes on your left, your too far over,

3. The shortest distance between points is a straight line, hold it,

4. My $15 is as good, not better or worse than yours,therefore we are equal on the road, noneed to run me into Catani Main Drain to stay on old mates wheel,

a. Point out pot holes, gravel and other obstacles,

b. Do not grab a big handful of brake when you get to the front,

c. I will let you race the way you want to, do not bag me for the way I race, as long as it is safe then I will advise you so

5. Hook turns are allowed in the CBD,not in a cycle race,

6. Duty, do it, do many- help out so the same few can ride more often,

7. If you think you can do better show up on the Club Meetings and help,

8. Look where you are going more, rather than were you have been when in a group, see point 3,

9. If you want to ride like an A Grader then ride A Grade, this is C Grade if it is too easy put yourself up, if it is too hard go down. But do not show bag(i).You will be a fool to yourself and a burden on others,

10. Please do not imitate attacks you see on the SBS Highlight package, no need to go to the far side of the road to attack, see point 2 about cats eyes,

a. You might as well put a neon sign on your head,

b. It makes some of us want to speak harshly to you, just as well we are from the Temple of Peace, Love and Happiness,

c. I have to go to work Monday, sore legs I can put up with, busted ribs is a different story, see point 3 again about straight lines,

11. Listen to Race Brief,250 is just that, unless you get a spare set of Tony Martin's legs from your jersey, it is very hard to go from well before that and win,

12. The finish requires attention to detail say no more!

13. We can use the left hand side of the road at the start, two wide only, be aware of other road users,

14. Finally a un-named fellow rider did cause me a smile when he yelled to pair up in twos! Is that like parking in your driveway? Reversing backward? A PIN Number?

Cheers

TG

(i) Showbag is a term that Bill can explain.
