The September sign challenge

Well Spring has started, the wildflowers are blooming, snakes are sunbaking, the green grass is growing and football finals commencing. Due to some rainy, cold days, my son injuring himself and my dads failing health my cycling to work targets fell off the wagon. In the last three weeks 4 days, 3 days then 0 days. Still doing some long rides to keep myself sane.
Unlike most parts of this island continent we’ve had plenty of wet weather here and are looking forward to more sun and warmth to come. The good thing about the weather in Perth is that just when you’re getting sick of the cold after 3 months of winter it starts to warm up then in Summer by the time the heat is grinding you down it starts to cool off. A Minnesotan or Tasmanian winter or a Darwin or Miami summer would just be too long for me.
Also, I’ve booked the CTAWA 2018 Toasting the Valleys bike tour starting on the 20th of October to 28th October. There will be 130 riders and I’ve managed to talk good friend Kenny Wildhog into coming as well. Something to look forward too.
Here’s some photos of the last few weeks and “GO THE EAGLES”.
PS. I’ve also included some pictures with my bike in front of a few signs for the Cycle365 challenge for September.

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.

      Thanks Burning off energy is the best way to avoid stress I reckon.

    I have used Cycletherapy several times this summer and early fall. Sure helps me! I know it will help you. Have fun on your event.

      Sounds like you’re over the injury and back into it, do they cycle in Washington in winter I wonder.

      Good to see you out there after your accident. Could be tough in Washington in winter I reckon.

      I’ll write up the CTAWA ride in a few months when completed, thanks for the interest. Looking forward to it.
