Sunday morning CityCycle

Our friend Aaron is attempting to raise $10,000 for his Ride to Conquor Cancer. As a fundraiser, and somewhat of a publicity stunt, he organised a 10km ride around Brisbane’s city cycle paths – and all on citycycles – this morning, so we trolleyed along for support.

(Note: this is Aaron’s brother, Dan. Don’t get confused – especially you, Julian.)

It was fantastic! We were blessed with perfect weather – not a cloud in the sky, and a slight chill in the air. I’ve never utilised the cycle paths in the city – neither have I ever used one of the city cycles – so there was lots of new experiences in there. Here’s the view we were rewarded with as we crossed the Story Bridge:

Our time of 50 minutes for 11.37km certainly isn’t going to win us any awards for pace, but lets be honest – this was a ride that was all about the scenery! In fact, I thought it did such a good job of showcasing just how beautiful the city is, that we’ll be adding it to our bag of tricks for the next time that we have visitors from abroad.

A big thanks to Aaron for organising, and for the brilliant BBQ breakfast afterwards!

If you have some spare cash lying around, go ahead and donate it to Aaron’s ride, and support this worthy cause!
