Ok… This is a ride not 20 minutes from my garage… So I was up early and ran part of this ride. I turned around about 8am as traffic and bizzyness on the road was picking up.
I note that there are heaps of police on the road. Lots of big trucks n vans and wagons… it looks like they plan to arrest a lot of driveers n riders today. I saw some fast running sport riders who may well end up unhappy today. I suggest that this is a road you don’t go speeding on, at least during the weekend.
I’ll aim to go ride this one day during the week…
