My commute home was... awwwwesome Made up for this morning's headwind! despite the ridiculously weighted backpack, had a good run at the Boulie, which was surprisingly quiet this evening. Going to miss my long commute to Oakleigh. But ready for a shake up to the commute routes in general...
Ah Oakleigh, where I'm never sure what I'll find next.
Yesterday it was a massive pile of ashes and soot where some bored kiddy has finally got around to torching the large dry hedge that was growing on the fence between the Centro mall and the railway line.
Today it's a chain that some miscreant has thought it'd be funny to bolt across the bike path. At least it's reasonably visible, I'm guessing that earlier cyclists than I have wrapped it in the readily available garbage as flags. Slack enough to lift over the bars and seat and get bike and trailer under too. Tried my hardest to unbolt the shackles but they've been mangled into place with a pair of pliers. I've emailed Monash council and prodded them via twitter, here's hoping they attend to it faster than they do for reports of trees down (up to 2 weeks) or smashed TVs on bike path (3 years and counting and it's the job of Connex, Metro, VicRoads, VicTrack, the tooth fairy or whoever else they want to point the finger at today)
