Local council has finally rebuilt the #bikepath around #Huntingdale wetlands after far too many years of arguments between council & Melbourne water. Looking good on a cold, clear, still winter day, perfect for my afternoon #cycling

While #cycling through the backstreets, a large #oldcar rumbled into view. 1970's Ford. Stopped to talk with the owner, he says they had an unfortunate habit of catching fire

Another day #cycling, another unexplored #alley in #Oakleigh, #Melbourne. I don't think I've ever ridden along here, even though its in my own suburb. One end closed off, it doesn't go through anywhere any more

Cycling Lorne to Waurn Ponds

Tuesday, Jan 14, 2020

@ Adrian Tritschler

Now how does that work? Two weeks ago, on New Years Day, I rode from Lorne to Waurn Ponds to catch the train back to Melbourne. I had a tailwind, I felt good, I thought I made good time and having left at 2 pm I got to Waurn Ponds in time to get straight on the 4.38 pm train. Two days ago I repeated the exercise, legs felt like lead, I had a bruise on my thigh from a small stupidity in the main street of Lorne, didn’t really put any effort in and wasn’t that fussed at how quickly I got to Waurn Ponds because I knew I’d have to wait around for the 5.

@ Adrian Tritschler

Each year for the past few years I try and ride as often as I can, my reasoning is that if I can’t go far, at least I can go often! Best effort to date was 2017 when I managed to ride 363 of 365 days, succumbing to the flu and staying in bed for two days in September. Rules are minimal; on the bike and over 1km, hopefully over 1.
Saved by habit!  Nearly left my keys at Lorne

Saved by habit! Nearly left my keys at Lorne

Wednesday, Jan 1, 2020

@ Adrian Tritschler

Habits are a wonderful thing. Whenever I go for a bike ride, I put my house keys in my left rear jersey pocket, my phone in the right, and maybe a snack or sunglasses or coin pouch in the centre one. I hop on the bike, ride off, and reach back and pat pockets, right then left … just to be sure. Today I was leaving Lorne to ride the 60km back to Waurn Ponds before catching the train to Melbourne to have the house to myself for two days while I had to go to work….
2019 Bike commutes

2019 Bike commutes

@ Adrian Tritschler

Annual bike commute summary and statistics. I think I rode to work every day this year, at least I can’t remember catching the bus. Shortest ride was around 2-3km when I had to drive to my parents in law’s house and ride from there. Longest was probably 30-40km on a Thursday or Friday afternoon when I can take a detour on the way home and go exploring. From the visualisation of all the GPX tracks I saved its all variations on a theme and either straight out and back each day or an approximately anti-clockwise loop.

…The Owner

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

…The Site

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
