Springtime on the Gold Coast

Ahhh, Spring has arrived on the Gold Coast. The weather has warmed up – but not too hot, gusty breezes turn long rides into hard rides, and bike lights are no longer required for 5:30am rides.

HAH! Who am I kidding? There’s only one thing that an Australian cyclist associates with Springtime: Magpies! And this morning, I got my first swoop!

Nothing too serious, just a pleasant little “Hello”, “Good to see you”, “May I take a wee sample of your ear for my collection?”

So, for the next two months, Australian cyclists have got a choice: don the Spider-Helmet, sit on the couch, or suck it up!

This Spring, I’m going to suck it up!
