Tired after the days work. Honesty and vipers bugloss highlighted in the weeds on the commute home.
Honest stop to make some art.
This lifted my spirits and the climb home went quickly.
Eclectically knowing art and cycling are good for the soul.

How can a dedicated cyclist be a whole week out in the daily count?
Previous post indicating 500th ride was wrong!
Following a day excursion train trip to Oamaru Ride #501 was very short Saturday.
Sunday's ride (Rides #131& #152) saw the local favourite MTB loop armed with a GoPro HD2 camera. Results not yet available.

Ride #501 - read from the cyclist who helped a cyclist

Morning paper run in brilliant moon light. Cold.

Olympics - London 12   -  plenty of sport.
But one of the buses killed a cyclist.

Read the blog from a fellow cyclist who was with the unfortunate man who was killed.

Eclectically sad from thousands of kilometres away.

No not #500 Ride in a row!! Remembering Peter Wells.

Celebrat e... celebrate .... celebrate. I have ridden for 500 days non-stop!
That's 121 days since 1 April 2012 and 500 days in total since 1 April 2011.  Yeehaaa.

That said, it is a sad day with the Otago Daily Times reporting on road works brought about following the death of cyclist Peter Wells last November.

This following less than a week after the release of this link which shows video of dangerous driving at this intersection.

RIP Peter - the above sky greated the dogs and I during our 500th outing today.

Eclectically happy to have ridden 500 days in a row and eclectically remembering a fellow cyclist.
