Coffee ride to Essendon

Today was again a winter’s day when the sun was out but there was a chill in the air.  Also there had been rain overnight so the roads were wet and potentially slippery so I was overly slow and cautious particularly on the rough paths and footpaths that had tree debris on them.   Heading out of Keilor towards Essendon requires riding up some significant hills. There is no way around it.  Once past these there was a new short path near the cemetery.  Interestingly seemed to be a funeral in progress on a Saturday.  We then travelled on some backroads and bike paths ending up near Strathmore and then heading to a known café for coffee and treats.  Near the café was a park pictures below.

It was amusing to see this cockatoo looking very dirty and ruffled but still having a drink and wash in the puddle

The ride home was more or less retracing our steps from before.  Always interesting to note how the traffic gets heavier and angrier around lunchtime on a Saturday.  STRAVA result
