Re: Mill Bay Road Race VCL and Masters Race

If anyone is looking for a lift I have room in my car for one more bike and rider. I plan to leave Victoria around 10am to arrive in Mill Bay by 10:45ish. Back in Victoria by 4ish.

Re: winter gym training

I have an old set of steel rollers (Cinelli), they're loud but work. Although not as nice as a trainer.
