I had a two hour ride to do today and decided that I would head straight up from my home along Plenty Road towards Whittlesea. I figured that the road was wide enough (with 3 lanes) through the built up areas that it would be okay to ride the trike. It was great because once I got to Bundoora there was a great bike lane that started from there. So I decided that I would just ride for an hour then turn around and head back. What I didn’t expect was that it would be so windy!
Today the expected temperature was to be 32 degrees so for me the best thing is get out early so that I am finished before it gets too hot. My MS doesn’t really like the heat as I tend to lose the feeling in my hands and the pins and needles that I live with tend to spread! So I was on the road at 7am and the best thing was that there wasn’t much traffic to contend with. But I also didn’t realise that heading north to Whittlesea would be very hilly as well. Actually mostly uphill with the odd little dip!
