Tour Down Under – Day 1

Today was the first day to go for a ride and check out some racing.

The ride was a flat one, to get me ready for the Norton Summit Challenge tomorrow. I went down to Glenelg and then North for a while til I found a quiet place for a coffee.

Then it was back into the Hilton to grab a press pass courtesy of John at The Velocast.

Some more mucking about and then it was off to the People’s Choice Classic.

It is hot. Ladies crit kicks off soon. #TDU2016 #cycling

Tomorrow is the Norton Summit challenge, so I hope this fuzzy head is just tiredness, and not the onset of a cold.
