What's the world coming to?
It was almost warm this morning, at 8°C.
I got buzzed by a motorist again this morning, on my least favourite part of my commute to work - imagine a section with 80km/h speed limit, uphill, and with a left-hand bend (on Maroondah Highway just east of Mitcham Rd heading west). What a lovely combination that is
. I was claiming the lane as usual, even riding slightly to the right of centre, but it didn't stop this idiot. It happens at least once daily, so I'm almost used to it. It demonstrates that no matter how assertive your road position, it's not good enough for some motorists.
My gear shifting is very smooth lately, because 2 weeks ago, for the first time, I replaced both shifter cables and did a full front and rear derailleur adjustment
. The bicycle workstand I bought recently definitely helped with that, too. This weekend I'll have to re-clamp both brake cables, as I replaced both of these about a month ago, and they've stretched a bit since.
