Serge's Velocino

My trike


 

Hi A few days ago, I was working at the bike charity wecycle when someone called me from outside.  It was Serge, he was keen to show me his bike, a Velocino  - simply a small bicycle.  Anyway I had a quick go and it was quite a nice bike. Mostly made from standard parts with a custom fork and front wheel. A very good fate for a Huffy mountain bike.

OzHpv Rally Day 5 Sunday

Accoutrements and luxuries  (joke props) at the Everton bus shelter, a phone and a TV remote.

Some tucker by the rail trail, ripe cherry-plums. You tend to ignore them when you're riding with others, but by yourself you have time to observe and pick and eat the fruit.

Op shop, It was a Sunday, but this was Free Stuff left outside. I missed out on visiting this op shop during opening hours but went to the other one a few times.

Myrtleford, Emma Mickle Centre

Hi

A last set of photos for the ozhpv gathering. I was riding the 50k from Myrtleford to Wangaratta Station, then taking the train back to Melbourne. This was jumping ship a little bit early, some of the other mob were riding to Lake Buffalo. 

At the Myrtleford Bakehouse we met Emma Mickle who was on a supported ride to raise money for  a Spinal Cure charity. She was doing very well. The ride was a return to normal life for Emma after recovery from a hiking accident. She had raised $28,000 via gofundme .

The ride to Wangaratta was not too bad and I used the rail trail for the first half, then the road. I was in plenty of time for the 1pm train despite a puncture. It had been a good trip, and nice to catch up with Myrtleford and a few old friends.

 

Best Wishes
