Road Bike 2:45:00 [3] 69.5 km (25.3 kph) +600m
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Yesterday's planned ride up Nebo with Kezza. 52mins to the cafe, felt reasonable most of the way up, never got in struggle town. Had some muppets with us on the way back down, they could descend but they were shit climbers so lots of them flying past at the bottom of the hill then us cruising past shortly after. Ended up letting them go ahead after one scary corner just before bellbird grove.

Find of the Day

"Eagle Rock" is also notorious in Australia for a more bizarre reason. Since the mid 1980's, whenever the song is played is played in a public bar or club, it has been common practice for Australian university students (largely male) to unstrap their belts and hobble around with their pants around their ankles for its duration. Members of Daddy Cool have admitted to being perplexed over the origin of this practice.[16] It is often attributed to a group of mining engineering students, who at the time were residents of St Johns College, a residential college within the University of Queensland campus. St John's, which claims the title of Queensland's oldest college (a title shared with another University of Queensland college, Emmanuel), has had the eagle as its mascot since its founding, and as such argues that they began the practice. In "St Leo's, the memory" (1992) by Micheal A. Head, the author comments on the heated confrontations that occurred during his time at St Leos college, between the residents of both colleges relating to this issue.[17]
The Clubs and Societies manual for the University of Queensland, has "Founders of the Eagle Rock Tradition" noted with the information for the UQ Mining and Metallurgy Association. Whilst it is a somewhat controversial claim, it is a reasonable suggestion with a number of St Johns residents specialising in the Mining field during the 1970s.

But the best bit is.....

Furthermore, the management policy of the University of Queensland's Student Union states no individual can be removed from the University pub, the Red Room, for dropping their pants whilst Eagle Rock is being played.

Morning Brookfield loop + added on savages rd. A balmy 12ÂșC this morn with lots of thick fog for the first hour. Legs were struggling on all the hills today, couldnt get them warmed up, might have something to do with my feet being numb from the cold and pumping cold blood back up the legs? Managed to catch the long run group for breakfast at Clares.

shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212

Basically got to the event, got o gear on and was called straight up to the start. No time for warm up or anything. Hit 1 ok but screwed 2-5, easily lost a good chunk of 8 minutes through here. Settled down after 7 and got a bit of flow back, then Ezy came through and got a tow till 14. Not happy with this race at all, but I dont think most people had a good run.

Freezing morning river loop with Kezza. Pretty cruisey most of the way cause we jumped on the back of a bunch at Graceville. Bit of a muppet group and no one attacked on the corso so Kez but the hammer down. Had to close the gap down with some other UQ cyclist then got a tow up highgate hill but was still working hard. Rest was easy pace.
