Well thought I'd better report in while the free Wi-Fi lasts.
Been searching Europe for a place where us Aussies can run and not be hampered by weather or other adverse conditions.
Started the search in Frankfurt, the local roads aren't too good, but by geez that autobahn down to Heidelberg showed some promise they don't even let the hills get in the way they just bore straight through em (wonder if there is any sub-terrestrial records up for grabs. Ended up in Venice next, now I understand why our itie mates drive like they do, no bloodily roads over here anyway, might have to leave it up to Warby and his mates. Florence was next, shit, the roads are that bloody narrow I gotta walk down sideways! On to Rome, bloody cobblestones everywhere dunno how their little Fiats don't just rattle loose. Must press on, to Nice in the south of France found a real promising location, straightest bit of road around, on the promenade probably about 3ks long at least you could give it a bit of a squirt and they have dedicated bike lanes. Went up to Monarco yesterday, checked out the grand Prix track makes Bathurst look like the Birdsville track, amazing. At least the weaher has been agreeable with high 20's most days, we even cracked a 39 in Rone
Well I'm still undetered so it's Paris tomorrow and England the week after. Don't worry I'll find somewhere we can race.
Keep the shiney side up........
