  1. Nice day in Melbourne this morning, so I went to Arthur's seat for a first run at it on a bike. Went up surprisingly OK, then turned around at the top and started to go down and next thing I know I'm passed by half a dozen Tour de France type pushbikes!

    Anyway, went up again and down again and the happily home. Another must do ticked on the list.

  2. We aint so fast up it . Dammit :(
  3. did you hurt your wrist? :LOL: :LOL:

    I joke, I joke, I kid, I kid!

    Good stuff mate
  4. Yes, pretty embarassing. With the weight difference I could probably have coasted down quicker than them without the motor running.
  5. its pretty tight there though so the pushies have the turn in advantage.

    im so there next weekend to give it the first run with the tard its a great little stretch
