Coming and going - self inflicted pressure


The thunder-storm was building up to the west of her, the temperature about 23C, and my guess is the air was moist and very heavy, maybe 90% humidity. It was early afternoon and Centennial Park was crowded with teenagers from nearby Sydney Girls' High who take cycling for sports afternoon.

There were no pelatons pelotons on Grand Drive at that time. I will have to go in the early morning.

I thought a bicycle would be the perfect thing for me, when we bought our little house in a small town, but it turned out the old saying "you never forget how, it's like riding a bicycle" isn't completely accurate. I know how, but my sense of balance is so bad I couldn't ride.

I had to look up "pelaton" which seems to be spelled "peloton" and means the large main group of riders in a bicycle race. Learn something new every day, but I didn't expect to learn it before breakfast. Guess I'd better eat first in case I have to learn anything else today. Thanks, Julie.

... and tyres to match the jumper too, very swish!

Trust you to notice first! Very eastern suburbs isn't she ... ut at least she is putting in the hard yards!

Interesting subject in Centennial Park.

It was certainly a gradual big up to the big storm we got yesterday. Colour coordinated? I didn't notice.

Great color coordination and fancy riding duds. I love a bike ride but do not have "racer" like that. Glad that she is wearing a helmet, too!

It doesn't look like fun, but I'm inspired to say, "You go girl!"

Great capture.

Poor woman looks as if she's about to collapse, but kudos to her for getting out there and doing it.

She looks a bit 'overheated'. Humidity is long gone around here til maybe May.

I like the idea of riding a bike but there is nothing but hills around here.
