Mid-morning ride 10:30-ish start: Home to Eltham, Diamond Creek trail to Diamond Creek, Broadgully Road to the "back of Hurstbridge", Bannons Rd North to Nutfield, (Half-way point) Arthurs Creek Rd into Hurstbridge, then back to Diamond Creek, Eltham and home. 42 km, 2 hours 30 minutes, average speed 17 kph.
Trike ran like a dream after a minor retune of the rear derailleur on Monday. Shared path Eltham to Diamond Creek reasonably quiet both ways now school holidays are over. Passed by a roadie going up the Broadgully Road climb out of Diamond Creek like I was dragging an anchor chain....Minimal traffic on the back roads before heading into Hurstbridge. Sighted a pair of wedgetails "patrolling" in one of the gullies at Nutfield, pulled over to watch them effortlessly ride a thermal over the ridge. Just a really enjoyable day's ride.
