Did a 42k ride on saturday morning. Nearly ran over a blue-tongue lizard on the Centenary Motorway bike path, but it stopped short of running under my wheel and stared at me with its tongue out.
It was a pretty surreal interaction at 30kph let me tell you, like a riding through a pop-up museum exhibit. It kinda went like "what the fuck is that, oh shit im going to hit it, oh its a lizard, oh its got its tongue out, its blue, thats a blue tongue lizard, they're only in Australia right? I don't think I've ever seen one, oh look now i'm home and that lizard is miles behind me".
I hit up ebay for some of that superfly secondhand cyclist apparel. The shit arrived and it looks suitably outrageous but Japanese sizing strikes again and its too small for me.
This loss has taught me nothing at all and I will continue to shop for idiot cycling gear from other countries.
Anyway, back to abusing my self-granted Unlimited Food license as I have been all weekend.
