That photo wasn't taken this past Sunday ... that was about 18 months ago, and on the opposite side of Tasmania from where we were last weekend.

Last Sunday, the only time we sat on the 200 km (other than on the bicycle saddle) was at a bakery for about 5 min.

I didn't take any photos on either the 300 km or the 200 km last weekend because we were too busy riding.

It was just a random thought.

I have a lot of random thoughts about all kinds of stuff. Sometimes they seem worthwhile to post, usually they don't.

I've been training my 11 month old dog to tolerate being in a fairly snug softshell airline carrier on the living room floor, and this AM we did a test run of towing her around the driveway by hand, with the carrier mounted on a bike trailer. She seemed a bit confused. Later today I will do a short bike ride in the neighbourhood but I don't want to stress her by doing too much, too fast.

Last weekend I cycled up to a ski hill, a 298M of elevation gain in 4.5 Km, on a gravel road that really needed some grader work... Sure felt good to have done it, at the top, and going down.
