Melburn Roobaix is the only organised ride I attend these days. It's a wonderful way to see parts of Melbourne you ordinarily wouldn't visit. 35~40 Ks including 12 sections of blue stone,back lane bumpiness. Follow the map to the start of the section, rattle your way to the end, find the number and write it in the box. Do this 12 times.There's no prize for first across the line.The only consolation is a longer wait for the closing ceremony. My tactic? Take it slow, find a nice cafe after sector 8 and have some brunch. (and then a double shot at sector 10). It doesn't hurt to wear a pair of Blunnies,either.
