I must be getting beter rode the mountain last night. Went up to near top and been able to just cruise. Coming down with thin wheels on very course tar was a bit scary did not exceed 55 km an hour. My average for whole ride was 18.4 a lot faster than when I went up with the mountain bike. I did feel better as wel. The problem with my road bike is when you go below 12 km an hour your cadance become to low and it get very hard to turn the crank set over. Thinking of doing the 99 er but also want to do race at Simondtown. Wil deside next week.
