I toyed with the idea of a jaunt down the coast. However, an overnight low of minus 5 soon put paid to that idea. I just could not keep my core warm; hands and bum were warmed by the technology but I was shivering. After fueling, I passed by Canberra's own mini Stonehenge and rued that I didn't come a day earlier in case there were any druids a visiting. The Tarago railway station looks very polished. I headed further north to Goulburn but my teeth were still chattering so turned for home. 223 km so that is my furtherest ride to date.
The first service is beckoning, better do all Canberra Hills (including Capital Hill) in the one go. During this ride, the helmet comms were tested as Michael rang me. I said Answer and we chatted (I did pull over). Thought about commuting to work this afternoon but I might give night riding a miss for a while. Have I mentioned what a good ride Bernie is ?
Well, we ain't being blessed with truly glorious riding weather - funny how Winter can do that. Getting up the kilometres toward the first service so we are sticking to the side roads with just a little freeway thrown in for a change. The villages of Gunning and Gundaroo in all their quaintness, were looking charming today. Almost stopped at Murumbateman as the bladder was almost bursting. A few fat drops of rain along the way. Where to next ?
Bushwalking & Geocaching a match made in heaven.
