TC CLC2019 P1

Cryptic but easily solvable Title.        Tony C, Cycle Life Challenge 2019, Post 1.

I cycled the River Road at Deloraine and then headed for the Wholesome House shop but first, the video!

The day was one of the best with no wind, sun, blue sky and around the 20°C mark when we finished.  Coffee was taken at The Empire cycling hotel and I was seen off with lots of good wishes for the upcoming tour.  And a few comments re looking out for the crazy drivers out there.

I walked the bike up to the WHS as the road through Deloraine is narrow and busy.  Bags of muesli and very healthy chocolate coated licorice bullets were purchased.  These are a tasty treat, Emily.

Bags in the car next to the trike after packing everything back in.

A quirky find in Deloraine on the way to Wholesome House :

It looks like recent rains have bogged the device but it must have been from their watering.  No rain here for a month or so!

As previously reported, I will be posting my next entry from Melbourne, all being well.

    Having been away from the site for all of February, I had missed your intro to the self imposed challenge you are about to take. I envy your long tour and wish you good weather and fine riding over the next month. I will of course be very interested in following along with your adventure should you choose to write about it. NIce intro video Tony, and good beginning photos.

    I think Kathleen’s video idea is a good one. Somehow, I think I know you a little better after watching yours. Have a great trip on the mainland.

    Enjoy the choc-coated licorice bullets! I don’t really like licorice but I will indulge in a few choc-coated things every now and again going forward 🙂 All the best on your tour!
