Spotted Al Sumner doing secret Christmas Eve hill training climbing the very steep section of Holden St, Ashbury.
About 3 weeks ago I spotted him sitting on the side of the road with his bicycle, looking remorseful in his red DH jersey at the corner of the Kingsway and the Pacific Hwy, Gymea.
What is he up to?

Good to see the correct bike speak is being used by the DHBC'ers "The Corkscrew". It was most annoying that they were calling it "Corkscrew rd" on TV, even Anthony Tam. They even displayed Corkscrew rd street sign.

A bit like not knowing what N+1 means

Have a great ride,
Peter


Whoops I thought i recognised you, I should have said hello. Our other rider was John N, we were off for a quick Lapa lap.


No worries, you were all in front of me before I even realized.

I was taking it easy but someone passed me. Doesn't that mean they want a race? :wink:

Peter Bownes at the corner of Fitzroy and Sydenham rds, trying to cross over. I drove pass him beeping incessantly and waving but I doubt if he could make out who it was through the windscreen.

Sorry to dob you in but I spotted (Rabobank) Ben doing his first Triathlon in Newcastle on the weekend. Flying the red jersey with a great bike time and a very respectable time overall!

I spotted someone in an old DHBC jersey today in Ashbury about 9am. Unfortunately I got there too late to see their face...

This morning I yelled at Jo S as she rode past me and she ignored me, then 15 minutes later I yelled at Marc on Broadway, only to be ignored again

Was wondering who that was on Broadway. Couldn't turn around to have a look, too many pedestrians around me as I approached the lights.

Haha. Sorry about that Mike! Where was that? I'm guessing George St as I've seen you a few times along there. I was having an issue with a Hire Car (who I vote as worst than taxi drivers on the road) who was intentionally not letting me through on the green light to turn right on to George even though he was going straight along Market St (one way street) and was stuck in traffic.

Spotted Todd Vogel turning into Unwins Bridge Rd with another unidentified DHBCer, probably heading home in the rain from cancelled Waterfall(?), as were Nick and I having surrendered our Kurnell excursion on the Grand Parade. And of course now the sky is clear!

Spotted John Mason on the way back from waterfall about 7:oo. Did he start early or did he forget to turn the clock back?

Colin, that was Andrew Belford and I this morning. Realised it was you and Nick once you had passed. There were 6 to 8 riders at the cafe. The BOM rain app showed showers clearing to the south. As ride leader for today I was unable to convince anyone to ride so Andrew Belford and I set off. I parted company with Andrew at Bestic Street went home, changed to a dry kit and Kerry and I completed a "dry" ride to Kurnell. Although I have two very dirty Lynskeys to clean. Glad we rode!!!

Will probably do Kurnell next Saturday Colin if you and Nick are interested - will PM you during the week.

Was that a new bike I spotted Colin?
