Coffeeneuring in Tasmania #3

“I haven’t ridden to the Cafe at Hazelbrae” I thought.  “Must be about 60k there and back, let’s give it a go”.

The first part I have ridden many times but the second part not for a few years and never on Magnum.  All went well until the road was closed and a detour was needed.

What a bugger.  Why was it closed?  Should I see if a trike can get through?  No- I’ll follow the detour to the right.  So I did and ended up going the long way round.

To the Cafe up this relaxing driveway through a hazel nut orchard.

Magnum waited in this pleasant spot while I went through the arch, turned left to the Cafe and had a very good coffee and an even better couple of slices of Anytime Cake.

Then cycled home to clock up 75 kilometers – a record on trikes.

    Sounds and looks idyllic, if long! And your coffee and anytime cake look quite inviting. I think I like the idea of anytime cake ;’-).

    You earned more than a couple slices of cake with that distance.

    I’m sorry to have to say this, but I don’t think I could force myself to eat anything that looks like that Anytime Cake. But then, I’m not much of a baked goods guy. However, after my last couple of horizon-broadening coffee experiences, that coffee looks REALLY good.

    Thanks for the great ride and great pictures.

      Hi Greg – that’s OK, I’ll have your slice!

      The coffee tasted as good as it looks. Tassie has really picked up the coffee game in recent years.

    Pay no attention to that curmudgeon Greg. The anytime cake looks great. And congratulations on the long ride!

      Thanks Scott – the longer ride showed I need spd pedals with a wider base. A common requirement for recumbent riders apparently. The things you learn and the bruising has nearly gone !

      Curmudgeon? You’re too kind. I prefer to be called “cranky old bastard.”
