MBTC tandem weekend — day 2 — Healesville

MBTC tandem weekend — day 2 — Healesville

Sunday, Dec 12, 2010

@ Adrian Tritschler

Today we had announced that we were going to go to the zoo, Cam immediately seized on this and for reasons known only to the two and a half year old brain announced that we were going to the zoo to see horses and bees. No amount of questioning or suggestion could shake this confidant prediction. It was with a sense of relief that as we were walking up the road to Healesville Sanctuary that a couple walked past the other way leading their ponies, confirming in Cam’s mind that indeed we were going to see horses!

@ Adrian Tritschler

Cat Herding, out of bed at 7:00 to be breakfasted, organised, packed with tandem and trailer and out the door for the 09:13 train. Sounds simply in theory and I guess it was in practice, even if we did end up walking across to the station with the trailer only half packed and the rest of the gear just stowed on the seat where Cam would sit. Oakleigh to Richmond, Cam delighting in the names of all the stations as they came over the PA system, then off the train and across to the next platform to wait for the Lilydale train on platform 10.

Wake up, pack up…. Bacon & eggs for breakfast, finish off the bread. Clean up, wash up…. Bicycle cleaned and ready, bags all packed. Put the bike in the car — no mean feat when one is a tandem and the other a Holden Astra. All ready to go. One last look around, “Have you got your shoes?” “Oh hell, no!” Pick up the offending pair of cycling shoes and have one more last look around.

Organised bike tour costs

@ Adrian Tritschler

I became curious about the costs of the rides as I was deciding to enter the 1997 NSW Big Ride and I noticed that more and more of the items in the ride are now “optional,” eg insurance, souvenir t-shirt, transport both to the start and back from the finish. Here are the prices that I paid for the rides over the years, usually comprising entry fee, transport between the ends of the ride and the nominal city of origin, insurance and t-shirt.

@ Adrian Tritschler

stats. Today ??km Trip total ??km A thirty kilometre loop out of Tumut to the south-east first thing this morning — designed to give us some extra distance and to get the cyclists off the road while the trucks all drove through to the next campsite. A beautiful stretch of quiet country road, almost flat along the plains of the Tumut river, and another great autumn day. Lunch was at a tiny place called Brungle — population 60, according to the sign on the road — the primary school was hidden off somewhere in the trees and had gone to all sorts of effort over the last few weeks to get ready for the visit by the ride.

@ Adrian Tritschler

stats. Today 74.6km Trip total 120km There was a thunderstorm early last night and some heavy rain, but it all stopped later on. One obnoxious local appeared at the show ground sometime after the pub had closed and seemed to spend half the night walking around the campsite and screaming abuse. On and on he went to the tune of “You can ride a f’ing pushbike but you can’t ride a f’ing horse.

Today 44.75km Trip total 45km A 7.30 am arrival in Jindabyne, out of the bus and into endless queues to register, weigh bags, meet friends, find coffee then get back on the bus to head up to Charlotte Pass. I’m not sure where Bicycle NSW got the coaches and drivers from, in the light of day the rust holes added nothing to last night’s impressions of lurching driving and grinding gearbox.

A two month bicycle tour that I made through the Iberian Peninsula from late September to late November 1998. In approximately seven weeks cycling I covered 3,500 km, visited four countries, drank many coffees and had a fantastic time. During my first week in Portugal a hurricane had just finished demolishing part of central America and making it’s way across the Atlantic, when it arrived I was treated to almost constant rain for a week.

…The Owner

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

…The Site

Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…

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.

Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.

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.
