I had some errands to run today, so I took the Fernleigh Track from Belmont to Burwood Road at Kahibah, then Kahibah road to Charlestown and to Kotara via the pleasant Raspberry Gully and Kullaiba Reserves, returning via the Track. There wasn’t much time for photos as the day was becoming unpleasantly hot, but I did click off a “lo-lite” sequence in the tunnel to see how the restored Malvern Star would look :
Perhaps a little indulgent, but fun to do ! The Sony Bloggie is the older model with the swivelling lens.
I am rediscovering the magic of single speed riding and though I do love my gears, I only had to push up a few hills today and didn’t think the ride was any slower than on my geared bikes. There is a certain joy in responding to undulating terrain with varying cadence and effort. Fernleigh Track in particular is gradual, and doesn’t really need low gears at all to be enjoyed.
