It's still early days but it looks like April has some weatherbombs in store. Let's rise to the challenge. Show up and blow up an NEBR classic  in the deep north this week. Up Agricola, make a loop, then back on Novalea/Gottigen. Turn at Duffus St to make it a 4K. And get your big guns ready for the Glebe Street Gutbuster - a 300-metre-long 70ft climb at the halfway point.

Map the route here.

It's the first run of the month so we're headed to Gus's Pub for a sociable after. Bring your whole team.
