Looking for Arches
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.

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.
Excellent arches, and yeah, that aerial map video is way cool.
You could go on Relive for a few local trips around MY town. Doesn’t cost anything.
Nice job with Relive. Was that part of your tour?
Tour is over and slowly writing it up. I often go riding around the city and up the coast to visit my mother.
Your really had your eyes open for arches! Well done!
Not a lot locally, had to head to the city centre, will put a post up of some local ones too.
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.
Go for it.
