The next day, Sunday was just as delightful in terms of crisp, clear sunny Autum skies. A flat ride to the bay – Semaphore. The air was as still as a crouching tiger! You can see the beautiful red animal in the foreground
And then there were these magnificent beasts being shunted at the Railway museum.
The train is named “Essington Lewis” a powerful locomotive.
Warm days and the sun rises earlier each day. The garden is in bloom and the chance to get back on the bike
My faithful gold Mitsubishi 380…
Has lasted 10 years and after a spell at the panel beaters to repair several minor car park knocks, a set of new tyres and a major service, has been passed on to my daughter. For $1. Thank god I only had one child.
But, I hear you ask, am I travelling now by Titanium bike? Of course not!
Yes, it is fabulous, a Lexus, or in other words Toyota answer to a BMW or Audi
A burst of pink. Amaryllis Lillies also known as Easter Lillies because they typically flower at or near Easter.
They have suddenly all blossomed in my back yard in the last week.
The other pictures show me crossing the Finish Line at Victor Harbor in the 2016 TDU! Totally unrelated to pink flowers but I had to have something else to boast about.
Another great week of cycling in Adelaide during the Tour Down Under. The week begins with the Ride Like Crazy – and as always ideal Spring weather and the usual 104 km ride though the hills the initial path involves cycling up the Freeway which is part closed for the event. Before that a group of friends rode the Amy Gillet Cycle Path in Barossa Valley. It now more than 30 km of dedicated (off road) path that mostly follows the old railway line! Pictures taken on this balmy Summer Sunday show it all. If you CLICK on each photo it will enlarge and you can have a slide show!
