Nice morning for a Run

No !!!! not exercise type run ,.. Overseer of your beliefs forbid ... I gave that up years ago..

It was 41 Degrees C here yesterday, (105+ for you non metric blokes), stuck at home, too hot to ride.. Just went from the Aircon to the Pool and back all day .. and night

Today,,,, Perfect weather 25c (77f) forecast sunny and fine .. perfect for a quick run ... on the bike

Said see ya to SWiMBO, be back in a bit..

Well seems the weather and the traffic was just too perfect ... did 277 k's in just under 4 hours (OK so it was a big bit... SWiMBO understands ) ... Life is pretty damn good when you have free time and access to a bike.

Went out via Greendale,

Chased a wombat through some forest roads

Went to Hanging Rock,

Thought I'd grab a drink at the kiosk ... The buggers want $8.00 to let the the bike out ... expensive corkage stuff that me thinks

Rode across up and around till I got to Mt Macedon .. No fee for their carpark but the Ice Cream cost $4.50

Continued home via Bacchus Marsh, Werribee and Werribee South Taking the bayside roads enjoying the cool southerly breeze off the water. Made it home for Lunch ... Bloody Brilliant.
