After four days on the tandem, riding my own bike this morning was a bit surprising. It felt so light and manoeuvrable! I realized as well how much my seat has slipped down over the last couple of weeks, put that back up to normal height, hopped on and nearly swerved into the kerb in our street — the steering seemed that twitchy! The tandem must have helped the fitness though, the ride along the Boulevard was a lot quicker than it usually is!

Traveling home, today’s “Idiot of the Day” award goes to the rider of the orange 100cc Honda motorbike, registration ZO-097. Passes me on the road, then turns left onto the bicycle path, rides along the path and over the pedestrian/cyclist bridge over Warrigal road, before disappearing up behind the houses along the Gardiners creek bikepath towards Chadstone.
