@ Adrian Tritschler

With a long weekend at Lorne on the Great Ocean Road there’s a chance for a few long rides, especially if I can force myself to get up early and get out before the tourist buses come through and make the traffic a bit too much of a chore. This morning I was up at dawn and headed out towards Wye River, intending to go through as far as Cape Patton and grab a coffee on the way back, probably at Kennet River.

The week from Christmas to New Years Eve I spent at Lorne. An added degree of difficulty this year was that due to the fires between Wye River & Apollo Bay the GOR was closed past Lorne, so that put a crimp in the riding options. There was surprisingly little smoke, the only real indication was the constant stream of fire-fighting aircraft (from littlies to a Hercules and a four engine jet).

After failing to go for my ceremonial last ride of the year yesterday — something I’ve managed to do when I can on December 31 each year — I took myself out on the bike today. First bike ride of the year; an easy 38km ride from Lorne out along the Great Ocean Road to Wye river, on for a couple more headlands, stop and look at the ocean for a while, then turn around and make my way home.

Up nice and early — no chance of a sleep-in with two small boys in the house and an enormous flock of cockatoos in the trees outside; screeching from one lot and elephantine stomping from the others… Breakfast and pack and out and onto the bike; the simple plan was to ride to Queenscliff and catch the ferry to Sorrento, then ride up the bay to Frankston and catch the train the rest of the way — I don’t think I’m quite up to the 200km or so of riding the whole way!

@ Adrian Tritschler

Last day of the year, last chance of a bike ride for the year. I think the same thing happened last year, a ride off along the Great Ocean Road. It started out with the idea of gently stretching the muscles from yesterday’s hike with a ride out to Wye River. Along the way I chatted to another cyclist heading to Wye and he decided that it wasn’t far enough and would continue to Kennet River.

Reminder to tourists on the Great Ocean Road An early rise — most unusual for me — and out and onto the bike for some much-needed hill climbing. Shivering in the cool air I was regretting leaving my warm jersey back at home, definitely not a morning for the short sleeves! An eye watering descent down Richardson boulevard to the main coast road, over the river and commence climbing up the Dean’s Marsh road.

stats. Distance 81km Last chance training before the Audax Australia Alpine Classic! An early start — early for me, 07:30 — up and out and flying off down the hill to sea-level. Tears streaming from my eyes in the cool morning air, then around the corner and start the climb up the Deans Marsh road. Far less traffic than last time a few weeks ago, but the roadside is still a solid carpet of bottles and cans.

After breakfast it was decided to go for a walk down to the beach, around past the Erskine river and maybe along to the Lorne pier. All quite simple, until you try to take two young nephews and all the required support infrastructure along! I think it was at least an hour from decision to leave until we actually walked out the door. Back at the house, examine the maps to see what would be the easiest way to get from Lorne to the Otway Fly — once again we seem to have left it too late, so it seems Jo and I are doomed to never visit!

The intention was to leave in the morning and drive west to visit the Otway Fly treetop walk, then head back along the coast to stay the night at Lorne. A long breakfast, too much sitting around chatting, and a stroll around the local shops meant that we didn’t leave Oakleigh until noon! A quick change of plans and we headed straight to Geelong and spent the afternoon wandering around the waterfront in strangely summer-esque weather.

Give a man a Subaru Imprezza WRX and he thinks he’s a world rally champion… until he slides it backwards off the Great Ocean Road and leaves it hanging over a cliff. One of two great Kodak Moments(™) that I should have taken a photo of today — the other being the road sign: “In Australia, DRIVE ON THE LEFT” — I guess a few too many international tourists stop at the lookouts and then drive off on the wrong side.

Apart from a minor excursion to Kafe Kaos to stuff ourselves on their magnificent Thai Tofu burgers, most of today was spent lounging on the beach. Unfortunately, neither Jo nor I applied enough sun-screen, so by the end of the day we both had sunburn in various places — me on the tops of my feet and ankles, Jo on her knees! The Pier to Pub swim was the major attraction, several thousand people on the beach, assorted swimmers and surf-life-saving boat races.

stats. Distance 93.8km Escaped in the afternoon for a ride along the Great Ocean Road. Despite all my best efforts I couldn’t quite manage to get my average speed up to 30km/hr. Very light traffic, surprisingly few idiots on the GOR, a clear sky and magnificent views. Average speed was 29km/hr when I got to Apollo Bay, and despite the tailwind on the way home, fell to 28km/hr by the time I returned to Lorne.

There are huge masses of kelp washed up along the beach and rocks today, but no signs of the whales that were seen on Friday. It’s getting to be a joke that where ever I go, there are no whales. Fishermen on the pier, coffees in the café, another relaxing day as we unwound from last week. 3.30 this afternoon and I decided that I desperately needed to get out and go for a bike ride, to try and capture the last of the sunny afternoon, so while everyone else snoozed on the couch I rode off along the Great Ocean Road, arranging for them to pick me up at Torquay.

…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.
