On about the first clear day since summer started way back on 01 December, I headed out. I probably had about 4 hours to muck about in, so I decided to head up the Putty. At the least, I could play along the fun Colo stretch.
And that’s pretty much what I did.
I stopped in at the Colo petrol station. Initially talking to this guy who was waaaay down the COVID conspiracy rabbit hole. Talking about COVID being feed to pigs and free range chickens so that everyone who didn’t get the vaccine would starve…. I think… I kinda just smiled and nodded and then turned to another rider.
We had a good chat about roads further north, riding in all weathers and supporting learner riders.
Then I headed off. For a few minutes, I headed north, sort of aiming for Grey Gums. But I realised I would have to turn around about halfway to make it home for dinner. If I went all the way I might get home to find I need to use my tent straightaway, lol.
So it was a good ride. Warm, but nice to be out. Couple of cops about, but that wasn’t a surprise.
