We hit the hills again this Saturday. The plan was to go down to Tamborine, up and over that bad-boy, and then drop down on its south side and then head to Springbrook for another shitload of climbing punishment. But Shirts had a mechanical in the shitty hills on Clagiraba Road and Tom and I were suffering so we were glad to call it quits after 105ks and 1600ms of altitude.
Adam (AKA Goose) rode with us to Yatala.
The views west of the Main Range were fucking incredible. The whole of this part of Tamborine Mountain was really pretty.
The descent was “WOAH!” And then we remembered seeing a cyclist at the top of the hill and realised why he looked so destroyed.
This is the shitty little hill where Shirts’ lost two bolts from his cleats and couldn’t stay clipped in. So then we rolled down to Nerang and caught the train home. Although everything didn’t go quite to plan – still a damn good ride!
