The Sunny Countryside

Despite the trials - last minute crisis of sick children and morning thunder and showers, we rode across the sunny countryside.

Day 2: Birdwood to Tanunda (take II)

Due to the uncertainty of whether we would be riding or not (sick child), we set off a little late. Despite thoughts to the otherwise, today's ride was easier than the last one and we achieved a faster average speed. Lots of sunny moments amid the warm humid day, interspersed with some cool winds. We cut the end of the ride 10km short, opting instead to ride 5km back along the main bitumen road into Tanunda.

You might remember from my last post my fat tyre, bulging and somewhat hard to ride. I replaced the tyre some time ago, and discovered that the wire inside the tyre has failed.
