This was the event I was waiting for and luckily Mizz Pina arrived last Friday! Had time to test ride and sort of fix it to my liking and off we go!
RAC Freewaybikehike is a yearly event and boast as the largest cycling event in WA! Again like Santos, this was an event that i cannoy miss being here. I registered early and the 70km did not deter me at all as I've done Rockingham so it should not be that difficult to do this one.
Managed to do Subuh in the car park near to the starting line.. Eh kejap, there is another story while we were on our way from Mandurah station to the starting line! The whole pack took a detour and sesat! hahaha I guess the marshall did not guide us properly tat we wnet of in tangent for about 1km!
I was in the mid pack and we were flagged off at 0640. I guess being more charity based it was not as cool as Santos! I reckon te Santos organizers were keener and more satisfying!
Ride on Mizz Pina was different. It felt really good to push on and I did not have difficulties to maintain my pace. It can be tiring at times but a constant of 30km/h was definitely easy to do. Met other Pinarellos as well and I felt a bit "malu" when they complimented my bike when passing me! haha.. tak tau la saja ke tak pasal when i looked at them it was DOGMA.. lagi mahal siiott...
The route was elevated in the first 30 km along Kwinana but I was not pushed nor did i really push myself. It was good to be able to cycle with strong peletons but I was never overdoing myself as I pace it just nice. This is history in the making as not everybody is privileged to use the highway for cycling!
When Perth CBD was in sight it was so exciting and honestly I can't believe my time then. Wished that I had speedometer to see how fast i was during t ride..Well, tu next accessory!
