Some of my photos while riding my Jells Park loop in 2014.
I usually met up with Matty (my former workmate) at North Rd, Brighton around 7;15am and continue upto Spuntino at Station Pier for brekky (Egg and Bacon
sanga washed down with a coffee). After brekky, Matty peels off to work at Queensbridge St just near the Crown Casino, while I continue onto the Gardiners
Creek trail(GCT). I cross over the Monash Freeway at the East Malvern station. I continue along the GCT to Warrigal Rd and ride over the overpass to join
the Scotchmans Creek Trail(SCT). Continuing along the SCT and turning right at Forster Rd and head along the bike path near Legana St, making my way to
Whites Lane. From Whites Lane to Jells Park there are some bloody awful hills. My body is definitely not built for hills. At Jells Park, I usually stop
for a banana and drink. I then follow the shared paths and turn onto the Dandy Creek trail and head through Dandenong. Crossing over the Princes Hwy in Dandy
then continue along the Dandenong Creek Trail the whole way to the mouth of the Patterson River in Carrum, where I stop and eat another banana, then rode
along the shared path (Long Beach Trail) that runs along behind the houses all the way back to home.
My ride is just over 103kms.
A beautiful morning at Elwood.
The Yarra river ducklings are now nearly fully grown.
Crossing the freeway near MacRobbo bridge.
My old school(St Kevins). Back in the distant past (1971)
I had my cadet passing out parade on that oval.
As I rode over the East Malvern station overpass,
the golfers were out in force.

Am I back on the Gold Coast? I don't think so.
It was good to see that George came to say "Hi".
He appears to be a tad smaller than his Gold Coast brothers.
