I spent a few hours this weekend wandering the blocks surrounding Bastion Square as groups of lycra-clad cyclists whipped past me. On my 1985 Norco Monterey, I’ve hit just over 40km/hr on flat, and I average around 27km/hr. These guys (and girls) were going well over 40 the whole time. I actually felt light-headed at times from tracking them through my viewfinder. Congrats to those who won their categories, and kudos to all who trained for this event.
