No wonder I love my ride to work

  1. Due to the excessive and heavy rain we've been getting up here in Coff's for the past few days. I've had to cage it into work,
    Today coming home, I got cought behind two logging trucks coming up the mountain,and with no room to pass em, I thought i'd entertain myself and count just how many turns( corners ) are on my 12k run from the Coramba turn off to the Lowanna turn off ......................115 yes thats right 115 turns of varying degs, :twisted: (Thats an average of 9.5 turnsper K )
    ** I didn't count the sections of sweepers you can 'straighten out' on the bike.**

    No wonder I love going to and from work so much :cool: :p

  5. Tell me about it! I was riding to Queanbeyan yesterday and some drop of rain hit me on the bike!! I was like, what the hell is this?? Crazy thing is I dont even own a pair of wet weather pants, just dont need em, and i ride almost every day! :shock:
