Morning all, I was riding to work this morning via an extended ride (My standard commute is to short) and got curious about what others see on the way to work.

Here are 2 pics from on off my routes. Depending on the wind this road is my favourite.

Image

This was taken on my outward ride, I some time go up to 20k's before I turn for home.

Image

Taken from the same spot on the way back.

How about some others?

That's cheating :lol: good idea though I can go along for a ride as well.
There's no street view out my way, only around town. :)

I was riding on ANZAC Bridge this afternoon and heard this incredibly loud aircraft engine noise and thought that I was about to get caught in a 9-11 styled attack on Sydney. Fortunately it was just those 5 big fire fighting helicopters warming their engines on the dock. No ideas how they got there though.

Looks like the bush fire season is upon us.

Image

PS. Pretty good to have a 38km bike loop interrupted by something interesting.

This is peak hour in David Street Albury :P

This is 200m from the CBD.. Sometimes I even have to open my eyes when I'm ridding :P

Image
This is now Peak hour at home time. :P Again.. have to be careful to avoid traffic :P

Image
Come winter time I dress up before attacking the 2degrees outside on the way home. Well.. I put a jacket and a set of gloves on. :P

Who's the Fonz.. :P :P

I think you are right. I was blown away by the clear water of Indian Ocean when I visited there the first time.

Having a computer that stops recording when I stop riding helps :)
