I haven’t ridden with my mum in a while so was pleased this morning that we both had time to go for a spin.
We started out at 6:30am. The late start was fantastic for allowing us to sleep in. It did mean there was a lot of traffic on the road for much of our ride because today is the first day of the school year. After enjoying school holiday traffic for a couple of months, the extra traffic was a bit of a shock. But the roads we rode are wide, so we were still able to enjoy the experience.
We rode down to the Raby Bay beaches at Cleveland. It’s difficult to believe that just a few days ago the sea was so wild that boats broke their moorings up here and were found washed up on rocks kilometres south. Today, the bay is so inviting that I would love to head out in a kayak for a paddle.
I enjoyed the ride with Mum. She’s my favourite riding partner. We cruise along together talking. It’s a good way to spend time together.
Total: 51.7km road cycle
