We are not the only ones out at this ungodly hour - Beach Road, Melbourne is the a cycling mecca regardless of the hour. We arrived at 7.15 am after our ride and cyclist were already enjoying their first fix of caffine.
One of the good things about our morning rides is the COFFEE afterwards - cycling and coffee these days are linked, we ride - we have coffee. Oh yes, and raisin toast all for AUS$6.00. And that's a mug of coffee, not just a little dainty glass thingy.
About cycling and coffee being linked - friends of ours in the area on Beach Road opened a bike shop and cafe called VELOCINO. Just recently they had their signage erected and I was pretty impressed with the results. Very 3D.
