classic sights.

The long ride of the week is always a time to catch some sights, and with a slow easy on the cards photo ops were the order of the day. Highlights from our Sunday roll included the ultimate roller setup for any discerning cyclist. All you need is a univega conquest sitting on a state of the art cateye ergo. HILARIOUS. Could only have been better if the owner was in sight!!
The out and back to Redcliffe is a great ride; traversing boondal wetlands which apart from the stench is quite picturesque. I've never taken the time to check out the lookout before so we stopped and climbed up. Why is there always a massive head in the way?
Redcliffe is also quite nice, except for the bogans in cars and howling headwinds in ALL directions. There are times when the hornibrook bridge seems never ending. Today was not too painful though as I think I am starting to get stronger. I particularly liked these pelicans hanging out in the kids playground. Waiting for some little unsuspecting kid with a pack of twisties for sure...
Again TR was there to keep me company. We are hoping to suck some others in to ride with us (trickle, fly!) but if they can't be convinced no bother - we will ride anyway. It is a long road until July but the work has begun!!!!! Shut up and pedal.

You forgot about the 2 "Good ol' boys" at the cafe and the 2 walkers who chopped us off for not ringing our bell as we rode past nowhere near them.

Oh, oh.......and fluoro vest man and the guy in training for his ride through the Mohave desert by wearing full body thermals.

Forgot about the girl wearing a scarf and the 4 people practising for the Slow Olympics through the Wetlands.
