It would have been so easy to sleep in this morning. I want to press snooze on my phone to delay the alarm but, instead, I get up. I enjoyed the Moonlight Wander on Saturday night and want to be able to do more of them. The best place to start is by getting up to take a morning ride. It’s also probably the best thing to stop my muscles from stiffening up after Saturday night.
I ride an easy route to Loganholme and then down the V1, which runs along the highway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The V1 is not an inspiring route but it serves a purpose: to provide a relatively safe cycling route. The route is relatively flat and has some pretty moments, like where it crosses the Albert River.
This morning the sun is rising out of the fields across the river. That’s why I ride: for moments like these.
Total: 57.5km road cycle
