November 2014 - Mt Wedge

Caroline, Warren, Wayne, Girwan, Bob, who else?  made this walk at the end of November.  Here are a few of the stunning photos to remind them of the walk and to inspire others of us to get there another time.

Mt Nelson, Bicentennial Walk - January 2015

Robert and I have commenced training for the Mt Amos walk at the end of March :).  Yep, this is up a mountain, and we're not ready!

Our training is starting out with (almost) daily walks of 1 hour, preferably with a climb involved.  I know, we're taking baby steps to start with! To assist with this, the walks in our Walk a Month collection are now being labelled by approximate duration.  Currently we can search for walks that are about 1 hour, and walks that are from 1.5 to 2 hours.

Today's after work walk was along the Bicentennial track on Mt Nelson, with an entrance point at the end of Acushla Court.  From here to the Signal Station and return is a nice little walk and takes just on an hour.

Bellerive Foreshore ride, November 2014

This was a first group ride with our Walk-a-Month buddies.  We gathered at Peter and Catherine's place at Bellerive, aiming for an 11am start,  and got our bikes ready.  Angie had her ebike (Ezee Street), while Di and Robert had their new non-e-bikes out for their first real ride in public.  Peter, Austin and Sophie were the other eager riders.

The weather was gorgeous as we headed off with Peter in the lead.  Here's our route:

We cut the ride shorter than originally planned, deciding to avoid the hill in Tranmere.  So the ride only took about an hour, but it was very pleasant.  And the barbecue lunch and wine at Catherine and Peter's was very tasty.
