MORE OLD STUFF

Adam will be putting up some more photos of mine on the History page. Will give you some more appreciation of Carnegie Club racing in the mid 60's. Sorry I am in them but still working on other avenues. Have a good week and ride safe.

EARLY START

Tomorrow is my big ride day, well big for me it's 140kms with seated hill efforts in big gears up behind Frankston. Leaving at 5.00am and should meet my friend Col at the BP Service Station for the ride to StKilda. What a contrast in the training to race two laps (500m) of an
