Dress rehearsal at home

Its come around to Fringe Furniture time again, and this coronavirus year, the festival has gone online. We were given the option to opt out once it was cancelled but I have hung in there. And today was bump-in, bump-out day, (or just plain filming) day, and it was pretty easy for me compared to last year.

So I was able to pack up my exhibit in a milk crate, and then plonk it on my Avanti Illusion crate bike, then meander in at the right time to offload. A few hours later I headed back in on the recumbent, photography having been done.  Will post when the online exhibition is on, I think it begins on the 12th of November, here is the link.

Thanks Brigit for all the wrangling!

Coming out of lockdown

came in the same batch as this one, a


The top bars are not part of the bikes, they are used to mount the bike to a car towbar.

Melbourne is slowly coming out of lockdown now and soon (weehoo) we will be able to travel more than 25k from home. Meanwhile against a background of 0 coronavirus cases nationally in the last 24 hours and 0 deaths, things are already opening up. Shops are open including volunteer run groups such as op shops and our Wecycle bike recycling shed. 

First day back was Saturday, a few pics from the day are above courtesy Simon Batterbury.

And until a week or so ago, the limit on travel from home was 5k. This didn't worry me much as we have some good riding and shops within that distance.  But today, I saw an "out of towner" on the boulie, my friend Peter who I've ridden with in Audax.  He had limited himself to rides around Box Hill during lockdown and got to know the regular riders on his local bike tracks.
