Today I finally got out on a decent road ride. The whole time I’ve been here in Sydney, I’ve been jonesing for some miles and elevation. A long time reader named James came to town from Canberra to ride. Neither of us knew where to go, so we headed to the coast and meandered through the coastal roads. It’s damn beautiful here and the riding is quite relaxing, once you get over the heat.
We ended up doing around 30 miles and barely breaking the 1,800′ mark in elevation. Not too bad. I’ve been told that north of the city is where the real hills are, so that’s where I’ll be headed tomorrow.
