It’s my favourite rock on my bike seat. It’s a Banded Ironstone (but rock size, unlike one of the challenge entries), it’s from 1000kms north in the Pilbara region. It’s over a billion years old, full of iron ore (about 60 %) and millions of tonnes of it is sent to China from WA to produce steel every year. On my New Years Day ride I rode to the beach and deviated to visit the Ore Obelisk or Rock Kebab in the city. It commemorates the one millionth resident of Western Australia (now 2.5 million) and all the minerals mined in this state.
Here is the rest of my ride and my cycling 2019 round up.
Wishing everyone a great 2020 (especially Green Bay Packer, West Coast Eagle and Minnesota Twin fans)
