Caution Cyclists Steep Decent

So reads the large, official sign, just before Coppins Crossing, which I read on Sunday morning as I drove down the decent hill before the crossing. It has been decently steep for decades, and it about time a sign appeared, but they could have spelt it write.

Monday training at Parliament House was another warm, still, dry evening with a good turn-out. Alan, Bronwyn, Ewen, Helen, Margaret, MickC, Miranda, Neil, Rachelle, Ruth, Tim & Yelena took advantage of the last Monday of daylight saving by running three "1k" loops fast, with another loop recovery where the recovery included exercises of their choice at the stations; pushups, dips, chinups, situps. The "1k" is about 930m with a few little twists and turns, and for this week only, running into the sun at one stage.

Neil will be able to get into some serious training now that the track season is drawing to a close. He has been so busy!

I am going to use a yellow highlight for speedygeese from today on, instead of red text, because this new format uses red text for links.

Song of the week. Evermore - Hey Boys and Girls (Truth of the World pt 2)

This song has taken off and the album is seriously brilliant.


  1. It should have said:
    Caution Cyclists' Descent Decent Ahead!

  2. All sounds a bit 'indecent' to me!

  3. "Decent" sounds like "indecent?" Hmmm. Yes I see. Like "tidy" sounds like "untidy"? That could explain teenagers. You're a worry, Strewth. But thank you for reading.
