Lunch from the bakery (Sorry Stu/Kor/etc, they were friendly this time)... then we rolled back toward Harrieville at an easy pace. I had planned on a medium paced ride to the top, but that lasted for the first 0.1km, the next 29.9km were done at a very solid pace. I could have paced it better for the entire climb however I still ended up with a PB time. Must have been a tail wind :) Or was it the encouragement from those ladies hanging out of a car commenting on my physique? (Bev! Donna!) Awesome views from the top, so clear I could see five or six mountain ranges fading off on the horizon. Looking back east I could see the road winding up the side of the mountain 15-20kms back down the road. While I was suffering on the side of the hill, Von was in Dinner Plain at a day spa getting the full pampering!
Many stories told back at the lodge we were staying in and a massive amount of pasta consumed. On Sunday we rolled down to Dinner Plain for coffee (only one sprint this time, got that too!)... Not much else to report, other than it was a magnificent weekend in the high country. One of my favourite places for sure, what a pity it snows there! :)
