Bit of a hefty post today as it's my last for ten days... gives you time to read it :) Was up early on Sunday morning to take some shots of the Freeway Bike Hike for Asthma which, depending on your level of fitness and enthusiasm, could be 1, 10, 30 or the full course 60km, would love to be that fit! Couldn't bring myself to use the longs lens, I mean... all those bike helmets coming straight at me :) At the same time as I was taking shots of the bike riders raising money a steady stream of walkers were crossing the bridge calling out encouragement to the riders, they themselves, including the Angels above were part of an amazing group of walkers taking part in a two day Weekend to End Women's Cancers walk, have a look at video here.. seriously Perthites you are fabulous!
The long distance riders set off at 6am from Elizabeth Quay in the city and rode north up the freeway turning at Warwick Rd and South as far as Roe Highway.. the fittest riders below on their way back from the northern side, my side of the river.
Back towards the city... so many long shadows at that time of the morning!
Was strange to see the normally busy freeway below minus vehicles on one side, you can just imagine how busy the alternative to the freeway roads were during that seven hour period... all in a good cause :) Only one more sleep until I face my biggest fear, flying! I'm off on my annual trip to see my Sydney famille, can you believe my gorgeous granddaughter will be two this week... I know right, where does the time go! Even more exciting she will have a baby brother in two months time, double celebrations! No social media for me while I'm away, too much quality family time to catch up on... so until I, hopefully :) return, take care and please stay safe.. p.s. maybe next time I should go by train :)
