It came about because its my nick name with my cycling friends, the Bayside Bandidos (mid-life crisis cycling gang).
After we returned from our 2009 trip to France we change the blog to Melbourne - home, mainly to share our weekly experiences in Melbourne with the people we have met on our travels.
Sometimes I wonder who reads our ramblings but people keep diaries - this is just a diary but a shared one.
We seem to have created a little interest out there as we have just passed the 20,000 hit mark on our 1st anniversary.
Please don't be shy - say hello by posting a comment as we love to share comments from people in all corners of the world.
Anyway - back to our weekend.
|After being tailed off from the fast boys, I took time to take in the view of Melbourne - our Home.|
Port Phillip Bay on a sunny Saturday morning.
|5.30 AM and following the riders on their 24 hour epic fund raising ride.|
The sun is starting to rise over the bay.
|And daylight appears as the riders pass the historic Ëdgewater" Mentone Hotel.|
|Yes, I know it was last year's jersey but the tradition continues.|
RIDING for GOOD.
|The end of 24 hours in the saddle and the riders enjoyed the welcome by family and friends, and a nice cool beer (or three) I suspect.|
I'm very proud to be part of these wonderful people.
BTW, it wasn't all fun and games this weekend - there were some chores to be done as we will be away next weekend with our cycling friends once again.
The lawns were mowed, the garden beds were weeded and I clean up the garden path. It had weeds growing up through the brick work joins so it was time to add some sand and mortar to give a new lease of life. The house is about to be given a lot more attention with the coming good weather.
|Later on I cleaned up the surfaces of the bricks.|
Sue has a herb garden she is developing either side of the pathway.
Hopefully I can post some pics in a few weeks time.
|Not perfect but we both like that "go with the flow" feeling with most things in life!|
That was our weekend - Don't be shy, tell us about your weekend on comments.
Venice on Wednesday.
