It’s a funny kind of summer in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, real “four seasons in a day” weather. That’s good for bike riding in the mornings and bikespotting in general, and a blessing after many years of hot dry summers.
Swansea-Blacksmiths-Pelican is like our local Amsterdam, but only vaguely, because it is flat, sea-level, and great for cycling …
I never tire of doing the scenic loop around the lake and along the channel here.
