Learning the Criterium and Group Ride

Tonight we (Cavan, TJ, Glyn and Myself) tried the Criterium course for later this month, both Me and Cavan have come to the conclusion that we are looking at being placed last and second from last unless somebody comes off their bike. That is of course if we are accepted for the race by the HKCA  Whilst we were practicing, a group of about 15 others riders had gathered in Tung Chung for the usual Friday night ride. We managed to catch them up by Sui Ho Wan for a pretty fast ride to Sunny Bay.  Most of the riders headed off to complete the SB-hotel circuit, whilst me and Glyn did the full SB-carpark-hotel circuit.   One quick ride back to Sunny Bay and we had a group photo op (not a good photo due to the light and the traffic) before everyone moved off.  A fast run back to Tung Chung, for a warm down at 7-11, then we headed of to Mui Wo for a steaming bowl of "Won Ton Mien" by the big tree and then off home to bed.  Today's stats - 49.28km in 1h:51m:16s at an average speed of 26.5kph
