Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Tried the nearby shared trails through the wetlands and along the Patterson River yesterday. OMG it was so busy that I felt like I was in a video game - people riding, walking, running, phone zombieing, randomly stopping in the middle of the trail, dogs, prams, toddlers, you name it :shock: I have ...

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Apart from a few casual rides in mid-April, have used the WFH arrangement to have a break from riding. Couldn't stay totally idle though, so have been skipping rope in the backyard and going out running a few times a week instead. Felt like riding again on Friday so went out around the local streets...

Re: How was your commute today

A cooler start this morning, but the roads were all dry after some sporadic rain over night. A gusty cross/head wind for the ride home, so I was quite happy when I got a wheel to sit behind for a few km's along Brighton Rd/Nepean Hwy. Going by the bike cage there's a few of these at my office https:...

Hear, hear! :D

Quite mild for the multi-modal commute in this morning, then very warm and humid for the long ride home. A light cross wind but no rain despite the threatening cloud cover. Good stuff.

Re: How was your commute today

After copious amounts of faffing around arranging access passes and locker fobs etc, finally got to ride home from my new CBD location. After 2-3 weeks off the bike and with a pack full of toiletries and clothing etc, decided to train it most of the way in at stupid o'clock this morning and ride the...

Re: How was your commute today

A lot of disruptions to my normal routine of late, so it was nice to get back in the saddle today. Mild and clear with a light tail wind for the ride in this morning. Only really started to feel the humidity by the end as well. Sunny, humid and a gusty head wind for the ride home, ugh. Was really fe...

Re: How was your commute today

Off the bike this week because Master Snuffy, who recently started childcare, decided to bring home Hand Food and Mouth Disease and share it with me. Hand Food? What, like Finger Food, only bigger? ;) Very uncomfortable ride in this morning, a thick mixture of fog and smoke haze plus 100% relative ...

Re: How was your commute today

Another great morning for the commute, still and fresh. Sunny with a cooling head/cross wind for the ride home, although it appears that the smoke haze is back :(

Re: How was your commute today

Rolling along the bike path in Brighton yesterday and some numpty wearing the full South African National Champions/Mitchelton Scott kit comes past the other way. I mean seriously, team kit is bad enough but to get it in national colours. He does look familiar though Anyway, mate checks the stravas...

Re: How was your commute today

Lovely morning for it again today, clear and dry with a bit of a tail wind. Fine for the ride home, but a stiff head wind with occasional big left to right cross gusts meant it was fairly hard going. Looking forward to a couple of weeks off now :)

Not all that unpleasant though and the smoke levels were well down on yesterday.


Sounds remarkably similar to my morning commute :)

Blue skies, dry roads, and a stiff and gusty head wind for the ride home. Phew.

Re: How was your commute today

An eerie start to the day today with a fog/smoke haze combination which thickened the closer I got to work. It had lifted quite a bit for the ride home which was otherwise warm and sticky despite the sea breeze.

Re: How was your commute today

Crisp and fairly still for the ride in this morning. Bike was running well after a clean and relube yesterday too. My front light got fried riding home in Friday's rain, luckily I found an old one in the spares box in the garage. Was probably getting to the end of its life after years of great servi...
