Well, today I went for a really pleasant ride with my brother Ross, and I have to say I had a blast. :) I may not be blitzing the tarmac at race speed, but I most assuredly had a very enjoyable ride on some roads that are frankly an absolute delight.
The weather wasn't ideal, it was a tad cold and there was the odd spit of rain about, but on the whole it was far from the inclement wet-weather riding experience I was expecting.
In particular the road from Woodend to Daylesford is a beauty with some lovely sweeping bends, and fantastic scenery, and it is a trip I can see myself doing regularly. Stopping for a coffee in Daylesford (or maybe Glenlyon to switch it up) is an added bonus.
This, I have to say, is about as much fun as you can have on wheels I reckon. :)
