NSW Ride 2018

Paul Grattan

Paul loves wine, cake, family, friends and cycling. Not necessarily in that order (Note there is a bike on the pictured cake to go along with the wine, family and friends!).

Last year was Paul's first CR Ride and fear motivated a punishing training regime. However, his lovely daughters shared their Influenza B in the week prior to the NZ ride turning the 1000ks into an ordeal somehow completed by sheer bloody-mindedness (see the photo above) and due to the significant help and camaraderie of the CR peloton and crew (and see the wider shot below!).

Another attempt is required... hopefully this time healthy!

The Adelaide terrior (both cycling and oenologically) might have helped too.

I need your help (please dig deep now) and this time I won’t need so much help from the coach!

If your quads start to burn, shift forward to use your hamstrings and calves, or If your calves or hamstrings start to burn, shift back to use your quads, or If you feel wimpy and weak, meditate on Rule #5 !
