Looking for Arches

 

Hello Cyclelifers,

It was the clearest of blue skies today. I went for a ride to my mothers house up the coast on the way looking for arches. The first arch is called Barracks Arch which was part of an old building which was demolished to build a freeway. After much protesting they kept this portion which blocks the view from parliament house down the main boulevard in town.

 

 

At Elizabeth Quay near the river there’s a nice arch-y sculpture and bridge.

Old Melbourne Hotel with arch-y windows

The Cloisters with arch-y doors

A fun mural. (no arches)

For the people overwhelmed with all the things going wrong these days.

 

A fly though of my trip to the coast.

 

I live in the hills just east of the city of Perth, Western Australia and I've loved cycling all my life, From riding to primary school when I was 8 years old to cycle touring as a grumpy old man. Cycling is freedom on two wheels and I love getting on my bike at any opportunity.

    That’s the coolest piece of software I’ve ever seen. What is it and where do you find it? Great way to show your trip.

      It’s free and easy to sign up. If you go to the Relive website. You have to pay if you want more than 10 photos and music.

    Enjoyed the photos and video — super cool video.
    After watching, I thought that had to be a long way, it was. ~75k = 46 miles!
    So, then, did you ride back home?!!

      Just rode back (6kms) to the local train station. I’ve been going cycling mad in the last few weeks.

      You could go on Relive for a few local trips around MY town. Doesn’t cost anything.

      Tour is over and slowly writing it up. I often go riding around the city and up the coast to visit my mother.

    I have a few friends that use the Relive app to show their rides. I have yet to try it out.

      It’s really quite easy to use. Just press start and take a few pictures along the way, then it creates a video at the end.

    Very nice ride with lots of archy things and clear, sunny skies. In the video, as you were riding along the waterfront, I kept thinking — don’t go in the water, don’t go in the water!

    Fear not, at no stage was I going to drown, I just stick to the cycleway.

    Relive is definitely cool. I’ll have to give it a try.
