So long ride day it was with my ‘sexy legged’ wingman Jamesi and he decided we would do the ‘bek loop’.James named it this as I use to be aweful at climbing, and this loop has three climbs..well they aren’t really climbs more like small hills compared to Swiss!
The sunrise was amazing that morning and the ride was alot easier than I remember, now I have climbing legs,never been discovered before! I managed to grab a shot of the james up the hill, behind me for the first time ever,probobly the last time too!
The ride takes you up a small climb at Tullebudgera valley near my place,over Connection Rd to Currumbin valley my favorite place to ride.We spotted some kangaroos lazing about along Currumbin….it looked quite inviting as they laid about in the sun..I almost joined them!Then we hit our little Tomewin climb,the hill is about 25-30 minutes and brings you out at near a little place called Condon.At the little Condon shop we re- fuel ourselves before we hit the flat section for another 20 or so km back towards Kingscliff.
The last part of the ride takes you over Teranora a nice short little hill and good decent into Tweed.My decending on the P4 is still a little scratchy and I couldnt follow James’s speedy wheel down the descent!As i took the first corner I wasn attacked by a swooping magpie who just wouldnt give up!He hit my helmet twice and as i was swerving all over the road to try to stop him, he kept going at me and I headed towards oncoming cars!Luckily enough I didnt come off and managed to get past this Kamakazi crazy bird, these damn things are my biggest phobia and now you can see why!
The afternoon I spent some time catching up with my two favorite girls in the world for coffee at Barchinos in Mermaid beach,great coffee and the best smoothies in the world!
My sister then convinced me to go visit the pet shop in the afternoon to check out this little pup,Simmyand my partner had been visiting this pup charlie for 4 weeks and no one had brought him because he has a bent tail.When Charlie was born his mum sat on him and bent his little tail, but he was absolutly adorable and ofcourse I couldnt resist.
After babysitting Lizzie B’s dog Buttons for 5 months , out shitzu-maltese Byron had becomes a little depressed when Lizzie took Buttons back home! We wanted to get Byron a friend it was only fare especially when his mummy was going to be away racing he needed a friend to play wih right??
The family, Amity and Ruby my little neice in laws ,visited that afternoon to meet our new addition Charlie….he was a real hit as you can imagine,I mean look at the thing he is just sooooo cute! We all enjoyed a chuppa chup together after a hard day running around after the new pup, very tough training day it was!
