Sorry, don't think that is good enough.
Should be at least all of Metropolitan Melbourne.
I'm sick of just riding in the Dandenongs. I want some flat roads and want to ride to St. Kilda.

agree, there's just no medical reason to limit us to 20k, melb metro I can just accept.

At 06:45 this morning there were already more cyclists riding towards Olinda than I have seen in the last 3 months!

Kew Boulevard wasn't that busy between 6 and 7am this morning.
Police cameras installed at either end of the separated bike lane. They are a little too obvious to catch the tacker.

yep 25k gets us to some nice hills. rode through boulie this morning, looking green from all the rain not many riders around as yet; this gets me back to some fun loops from home as boulie is always at the start or end of rides.

camera's on boulie will be a deterrent better than nothing I guess.

I might pop out for a ride tonight before we get locked down again. Looks like it will be raining for the next week too.

Starting tonight (11:59pm Friday 12/2/21), only 2 hours of exercise per day, with one other person and within 5 km of home. Masks must be worn at all times when outside your house.

Riding with a mask really sucks. I have no problems with masks in any other setting.
Looks like I have to get use it it again.
