Wednesday ride to the hinterland

This morning Carolyne and I enjoyed a delightful hour at Elk Espresso, chatting, drinking 2 strong espressos and reading the Sydney Morning Herald.

In the aftern
oon I met with Trevor Gammon at the velodrome and criterium circuit at Nerang. We enjoyed a cycle with up to Beechmont (566m altitude) in the hinterland behind the Gold Coast: great views across the Nerang River valley to the coast! It was substantially colder, even though it was only 4pm. The descent was very cold and it too me an hour or two to feel comfortable again. Next time I'll leave earlier in the day. We rode around the criterium circuit: it includes a short, steep climb and would be a challenging circuit to race on.
