I'll use any excuse for a bike trip up north. People say that the Yarra river is the main north/south divide in Melbourne.In reality,it's the lack of a safe cycle route that is the barrier.If you are prepared to take a few back steet detours your efforts will be richly rewarded.
Graffiti that doesn't make your blood boil.
Even the architecture seems better, up north.(I think?)
Having spent most of my working life at sea, as a sailor in the merchant marine,I have recently come ashore for a second go as a land lubber.The first time I was retrenched due to the GFC and I went back to sea on the Bass Strait ferries .Three years later,here I am. My job as a cargo super involves a company car and a small amount of driving around, which I try to keep to a minimum.
This blog is my view of the world from the saddle and also a diary of my passion for old, steel framed French treadlies.
