Commute Pictures.

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.

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

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

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

I Live in Goldsbrough and watched them get unloaded from a ship via a crane.

2 are going to Vic, 2 in NSW and 1 to QLD I was told by a firey from Pyrmont

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 :)

Just a quick note to visitors, there is a bike path and roadway along the foreshore for the entire length of these photos which makes my mornings absolutely fantastic on mornings like today.
