Riding home this evening I watched a mother and baby Common Ringtail possum walking along the hand rail of the bike path. Classic nose-to-tail view, the adult moving slowly, the baby half her size, but snuffling about all over the place. They disappeared too quickly to photograph, but they made me smile.

Rolled over 9,000 kilometres on the bike computer as I turned onto Yarra Boulevard. Not a great distance really, I’ve had it for , 600km per month, only 7,200km per year!
