A bit like 2006

More sunny, dry weather allowed the guys and I to get out for rides on both Sunday and Monday. We are edging closer to 2700 kms for the year – only 600 kms behind where we need to be by the end of June. Oh well…. at least we are really enjoying these rides under brilliant blue skies.

    Nice ride, hope the medical tests go OK.

    Those hippies must have got lost, Nimbin’s are fair way from there.

      I was just hoping the hippie guy had some shoes in the car if they were heading up to the snow!

    Great to see you getting out, and finding such great weather. It’s hard to beat a really fine day in the winter – it feels like you’re stealing one from the weather gods. Watch out for those scary, wild eyed guys though!

      Nice days in winter can really spoil you – when you get some ‘normal’ winter days, you say, “Hey, what’s this!?” Of course, our ‘winters’ aren’t really winter and don’t last very long anyway.

    Nice rides!
    And jumping trenches with bicycle in hand is impressive! Glad you made it, the alternative wasnt a good one!
    If I saw a sign that said “Road Plant Ahead” — I would have had no idea what it meant. I encountered a trench across the road a couple years ago as they were digging it, and turned around and went back. 🙂
    And I learned what a mullock is too. Are there any environment concerns with them?
    Glad you are feeling better!

      Hmmm…. I guess I’ve gotten used to the term ‘plant’ for machinery and didn’t remember that it’s not used in the US!
      I’ve never heard anyone saying too much about the pollution from those mullock heaps – but I imagine there is. There is very little surface water or big streams in the area where pollution would be more noticeable. I would not want to drink “well” water in the area, though. Maybe if there was a bigger population in the area there would be more monitoring?

    Turns out we live in your ideal climate!! I must say we love it but/and I do wish the sun would come out. We have had a lot of fog of late but then if it gets warm for a few days I want it back😂😂

      Yes, Monterey would be a nice place to be… except it lacks big mountains and I’m not much of an ocean person. I did really enjoy my time in that area in 1998, though. I would love to live in the mtns at 9,000 feet or so and have warm but never hot summers and lots of snow in winter. I’d love to trade the bike for nordic skiing for part of the year, if that was where I was fortunate enough to live (-:
