The Jacarandas are blooming everywhere at the moment. This one is at the end of our street and it is so beautiful I just had to stop and take a photo. Although they always remind me of exams, they also signal that summer is finally here! It has come in force today with 38degrees recorded as I left work at 6pm today. I am pleased I went for a ride this morning.
It's been slightly over a week since I last recorded my rides on the blog. I've actually lost count since a week or so ago, so I must have totalled more than the needed five solo rides to be eligible for a ride with Coach. Have to admit, his tough approach seems to be working to get me on my bike.
Last week I had a tranquil ride on the afternoon of Coach's birthday. The weather was perfect; water still, sky sunny and the bikepath was empty, not a dog, walker or magpie in sight, as I pedalled out to Breakfast Point.
On Saturday I also rode solo in the afternoon taking in the two bays of Drummoyne. The beautiful weather in the photos doesn't quite tell the whole story as the curse of cyclists - the wind, a southerly, was in full force. Still it was a lovely ride and as I set off from home I couldn't help but think of my father in law who would certainly have declared the day a "Bobby dazzler".
