Another attempt climbing with the A’s, this time with the B’s taking the same route so that those that fell behind would still be able to ride with a group. The route went up Hurd Rd., where the faster A’s got a slight lead before the climb, and the rest of us pushed hard but watched the gap growing quickly. We still had a small group of about 5, and worked together to minimize our losses.

I had a good chance of leading this A- group, and worked hard on the climb up Ringwood. When we turned up the hill towards Mt Pleasant, three of us were left. Then my chain fell off twice and I was far behind but thought I might try to catch them. That didn’t work after the second time the chain fell off though, so I rode with the other two that had fallen behind the 2 left as the A- group. I still worked hard up the final climb and was dead by the top.
