So I can’t let the month pass by without getting in the liquid that flows down Australia’s most famous river. I live less than a kilometre away from the river, so there’s no excuse. This river, and its tributaries, drain over a third of the Australian continent. It’s quite low at this time of year because there is little demand for irrigation water.
I enjoy riding along the river on my after-work rides – at this time of year it is noisy as dusk approaches and all the birds come home to roost for the night. In summer, the trees provide a little bit of shade and humidity to offset the heat. And soon, as we hit the start of spring, the yellow blooms of the wattle will explode forth with colour (those pics are just days away it appears).
I may feel like crap, and my energy may be almost nil, BUT I am so grateful to live somewhere with access to a number of different easy rides right at home and more interesting and hilly rides not very far away.
