Default Hmmmm, maybe that wasn't such a great idea....

A 700km mid winter round trip to hang with Famous Rog. A road bike with a rear tyre some would call bald. Back road short cuts. Wet clay. A throttle hand numb from the cold. What possibly could go wrong......

WOT? The same tyre as we saw a couple weeks ago? Or do you have bald rears on most of your bikes?

A bit of a slow start from Bayswater waiting for the weather to improve. At 9am, it was time to head off…

Lots of photo stops through the Black Spur…





Pull over, take a photo or two to give the slow parade another head start…



Encouraging signs as I took the back way into Alexandra.





Nope. Spoke too soon. Lake Eildon is out there, somewhere…
