A neglected bike

neglected bike

My bike was in danger of becoming like this one it is so long since I was last on my bike.  I decided to remedy the situation and last week I went for a ride.  I intended to ride from Nicholson to Bumberah and back but once I reached Bumberah I realised I wasn’t too tired and continued on to Bruthen.

There have been some improvements to the Rail Trail since I was last on it.  There is now a water station which is a great idea and much appreciated by cyclists.

There is always the beautiful scenery to admire while on the ride so it was a few hours well spent.
