Trying to be better about getting out on the bike more often even if only for a quick 20km spin (yesterday with @pukatsai the “pond guy”!). But today I did a nice and hilly 50km with a bunch of climbs, a peak hour section of highway, a long stretch of cruisy gravel/singletrack downhill, and that infamous hill bomb at the end. 10/10, would ride again!
Now that Victoria’s 25km travel limit has been lifted it was time we got our official depth-o-pond-o-meter man (@pukatsai) to come out today to see how deep our pond actually is
With nerves of steel (and waders of rubber) he and his trusty leaning pole gracefully stepped out about 2 ½ metres into the abyss, got his nipples wet, and turned right back around again. Verdict: “it’s deep.” Money well spent!
Guess who’s just had a bath?
– Finally found my perfect Allen key set: Wera Hex-plus, stainless steel. Making a quick walk mount, currently with paint drying. Vinyl cutter mask for painting the sizing tomorrow. Now, I just need some more bikes to build… 🤔
It’s quite impressive how quickly this tree goes from twigs to seeds pods to full green leaves. Maybe three weeks, especially with a week of sun. Sadly the winter grass beneath will die off soon. But then again: less mowing :)
