Our mate and Lair from way back was in town, Surly Dave was on his way up to Bright for Semaine Federale and the Alpine Classic. This was a good reason for a Saturday ride, and as the Alpine is on next weekend Mt. Macedon was in our sights...Well some of us weren't looking.
Twelve of us headed out, some with a longish ride in mind others thinking of lunch and a couple of beers (those with hangovers, not thinking of much at all). Dave, Glo, Andy, Pete, Leigh and I took the short option, while Ken, John, Aidan, Allison, Sam and T-bird opted for more than one climb.
It was great to have Dave back on a Lairs ride, he's gone to great lengths to avoid us, so while we had him we made sure he was kept "under the pump". Thanks to Andy and Glo for the great lunch de Surly, hope to see you back soon Dave.
Don't forget there is a ride on tomorrow (Sunday), 8am.
The Lairs go to Omeo - Some fun high country cycling in this video from late November.
