This adds nothing but I'm going to post it anyway
Work recently changed its policy on camera's in the office so I'm once again able to carry a camera phone around, guess I was just after an excuse to actually use it. Besides any excuse will do to mix up the commute a bit. So yeah I did go this way just to take a pictures, and no; I did not realistically expect to beat baudman putting up a pic of the same thing
Along this section I took the lane, but it was late enough that no cars had to worry about passing. Most of the other cyclists went between the scaffolding and the bollards. Personally I've see too much stuff fall off them/ buildings collapse/ scaffolding collapse, reckon you'd be safer riding up the road, guess that's why the area is cordoned off.
Cut down Johnston st after Swanston, not such a bad ride, maybe a little too congested.
