After almost a year of organising, we managed get Aidan and Huw to come along for a ride. For one, it was a baptism of fire and for the latter, a spectacular dismount halfway down Kinglake. Both didn’t finish, but I’m certain we haven’t scared them off. Aidan is highly competitive and Huw is as strong as an ox and feels no pain. They’ll be back in not time.
We hadn’t done the Hurtsbridge-Wittlesea-Kinglake loop in over 6 months and it was a great way to gauge how much we had progressed with our riding. Suffice to say, we completely smashed our PBs going up Humevale Rd.
