Cpical is by far one of my favorite people to go riding with and we've had a lot of cool rides together, mostly to Kinglake and then there was that inaugural trip to Mt Donna Buang.
I think the trip to Mt Donna Buang was one of the first trips we ever did with Cpical, we met him because of www.bicycles.net.au and we've pretty much been friends ever since. Wait. We first met Cpical at a forum ride that I had organised, he was waiting for his bike to arrive from Europe and was riding an old steel frame (and he was still better).
The trip to Mt Donnna Buang was interesting, me, Elmo, Gunlock and Pical... I think that was it, 3 bikes on the rack and one in the boot, Pical spent a lot of time borrowing one of Elmo's Specialized bikes.
That's Pical there on the right, web cam... very cool, way to go with the techno bro.
Poor Gunlock, lets just call him Gun, he rides an Oppy, and we really took the piss out of him, it isn't unusual for us to take the piss out of people. Sure, it may feel hurtful but do keep in mind that when we also take the piss out of ourselves as though it where an Olympic Sport... and yes, we are the best.
Pical doesn't seem to care how fast he rides or where he rides, the important thing for him is that he rides his bike. On almost all of our adventures he's always come back down the hill to pick the last of us (me) up and climb with the last person to the top at that persons speed.
He's also a silent achiever, I've seen Andrew try and beat PIcal many times on our Kinglake rides... its a recipe for failure, I'm considering putting cement in Pical's water bottles... he's the strong silent type and he will be joining us next weekend at the Alpine Classics aka oh-my-god-Pical-is-the-only-one-who-trained-and-the-rest-of-us-will-suck-not-that-that-any-different-to-usual.
Anyway whilst Pical is in Australia, I have declared that he is Australian!
Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!
