Winter, and being a responsible adult, have slowed down my riding adventures recently. So being a three day weekend a friend and I decided to celebrate the Queens’ birthday with a ride. Off we headed to Goulburn and the famous Paragon Cafe for brunch. We had a lovely ride there but had to go a bit slow given we were on some unfamiliar roads.
Some fuel for both the bikes and ourselves along with copious amounts of caffeine and we were ready to go.
The ride back was just fantastic. We almost had the roads to ourselves and for most of the ride the sun was shining. Dallas and I both noticed some interesting rock formations that looked like a small Devil’s Marbles (the real Devil’s Marbles in the Northern Territory are shown in the banner of this blog) which we decided we will go back to photograph soon. We had a nice stop for more coffee in Gundaroo which seemed to be a mecca for riders going both directions on the day.
On the final leg we took a route I’ve never done before and the great times continued. Coming out of Gunning an eagle flew over us up close for a few seconds and then we returned to our own flight home. We made it home long before dark and in time for you guessed it, another cuppa.
No photos today as we only made two stops and were fairly wrapped up in getting the most from a short winter day. We certainly succeeded and I now all I need is a new front tyre so I can do it all again.
