With much fanfare Jo declared it is time. Time to take her new bicycle out for a ride — one week old and it hasn’t been ridden yet!

Down towards Mordialloc and we’re thinking that the new bike is magic — the two of us are sitting there, cruising along at 35km/hr, chatting away and barely pedaling…. Ah, the faces of the riders heading in the other direction reveals the awful truth — there’s quite a northerly blowing, and its square at out backs! Once we’d turned around it became one long slog home into the face of the wind, approaching South road we were struggling to maintain 14km/hr!
