Sensational forecast. Looks like the gentle roll up the hill tomorrow is all systems go. Must be time for some quality carb loading.

A day early here, but I'm with you, HughieP! :D Drank some beer and ate a heap of chocolate chip cookie dough while baking this evening.

Have a great ride, see you on the other side on Satdee.

If you give someone your mobile number, we can update you en route! :twisted:
You should be about ready to sit and drink by then, no?

Put the 2013 BtM jersey on this morning for maybe the second time since it showed up and busted the zip. I suspect Chinese workmanship was not the issue more a reflection of the extra conditioning being carried this year.

Now to try and skive off work early for the ride up. If you pass a burnt orange warbird (and a busted zip) feel free to wave as you zoom past.

I think all I'll be doing is sitting and quite possibly sleeping

Hmmm...actually I think the location of our evening show is going to make it a big pain in the backside to get down to Fed Square...

Forecast is for a late shower.
Which fits right in with my original plan, 'cause I reckon I'll be a bit smelly by then.

Head checks are going to be fun. Tweaked something in right side of my neck drying myself after a shower this morning. Currently sitting at work with the wheat bag on my neck and voltarin streaming through my system.

I've heard beer has magnificent anti-inflammatory properties.
