Gold Coasting

17 August 2009

Liz and I have been here since Thursday night.
Riding, running, swimming, paddling, sleeping, eating and more riding.
The weather has been around 25 degrees each day!

However...the drivers here are the biggest rednecks. 95% of them are out to kill you, seriously, its like they make a beeline for you.  So I have become quite an aggresive rider on the roads, no wonder a lot of cyclists get killed on the roads here.

We have met some great people though, a guy Grant, who we met on the Currumbin Ck outlet, loaned us his ski and sea kayak to use for a paddling session and he did not know us from a bar of soap, nice that there are still human kinds out there!

Matt Binney has been extremely gracious and picking us up here and taking us to the airport and riding with us etc...bet we have been better for him than he is for us!

We go home tonight, so last day in the sun...for quite some time by the sounds of it.  Victoria weather has been stupid windy, rain and hail and we still have 1/2 of August to go!  BBBrrrrrrr....See you soon Normie boy, miss you and love you long time - $5!
