As another southerly approaches
I take the 22 year old Giant Innova with the red handle bar tap
Ride around the block. About 10km.
Down hill, up hill, across the top with the wind behind
Over the railway line and with care in the middle of the traffic lane as the very left hand best for cycling bit is still deep in grit layed for the ice two weeks ago!
As a ride I plan the Innova upgrade.
Cables, front sprockets, cluster, derrailer, cables & brake blocks.
Should come in under $150.00.
On the last complicated corner a (an) ute overtakes,
The 20 liter gerry can of fuel falls over on the tray and a hot dog stick bounces of the road beside me.
I have ridden. Day 128.
