    @James - thanks. I think it's mainly down to luck, depending on what group you end up in, whether you manage to avoid the crashes, etc. I was SO close to crashing 3 times... very lucky not to have gone down. It was a weird ride for me. We didn't seem to be going very hard / fast, but I had cramps for at least half the ride. I was mainly trying to manage that. Most of the time it was just cruising in a group. There were so many riders out, even if you wanted to go faster it was really hard due to rider density. I guess it was the same for you.

    Thanks Brian & Ian. It was a really weird event for me. I've never had cramps like that before. I felt strong but also super fragile at the same time, yelping with pain over every bump :-)

    Kevin - thanks (including for all the club rides)! I'm sure you're right about the training. Actually, today was quite like a club ride, except without any time pulling on the front :-)

    @Sarah - blinking heck? :-) It was fun out there, though very painful much of the time. I'm looking forward to some fun and relaxing riding around now, without feeling any need to make myself faster / fitter, etc.

    Great job terry, it can beneficial to in a large group, but also risky. Great event, I enjoyed the encouragement from spectators.

    Hi James, thanks! I've no plan to go to Perth... it's a bit far, and although the racing is fun in many ways I'm not sure I need it in my life :-) I'm still enjoying learning a lot about cycling and myself as a result of trying to get better, and am glad I did the ToC as a yardstick against last year when I didn't even have a road bike.

Kudos
