Sunday morning ride

It was a beautiful, clear and crisp winter morning in Melbourne today.

It’s been a while, but I finally jumped back in the saddle and went out for a decent bike ride. It wasn’t ideal weather for cycling, as there was a strong north-westerly wind with gusts up to 52km per hour.  There was a slight head wind up and tail wind down, with the wind mostly blowing across the path.

Tony and I met in Brighton and rode to Port Melbourne. It was a leisurely ride. We talked about podcasting and hatching evil plans. We got to the turnaround point at Station Pier, in what seemed like no time and ate breakfast before the return leg. Very civil — and enjoyable. We certainly didn’t set any records, but it was good to be back on the bike.

Map: 21.32 km, 1 hour 25 minutes.

Hat tip to Dave Winer for the idea to blog this, and for pointing to Cyclemeter. It’s such an awesome app.
