Wanted to update this last night, but things just didn't pan out with time and all. Yesterday turned out to be quite interesting in the evening, it's coming to that time of year where the ocean spray tends to be just that little bit thicker near the beach, noting that the onset of summer isn't far away. It was in that little bit of distance in the mist, that I saw a familiar figure, but one I haven't seen for a while.

A woman who I met riding home from work one evening last year, and shared a couple of rides with along the way. Thought she'd disappeared from the face of the Earth, as I haven't seen her since schoolies' week last year (I wouldn't be surprised if she gave it all up after that, females on bikes tend not to be treated very favourably at that time of year). I'd actually been a little worried about her, I guess I get those protective male instincts with regard to females on bikes.

Still, it was good to renew acquaintences again (I'm surprised she even remembered me). Apparently she's changed her working hours a little, which might explain why we've not met since then. Seems she's been passing on some of my tips about how to ride in traffic safely (particularly among the morons around here). I'm glad someone appreciates my efforts. Sadly, not everyone does -- even those who should be the true believers.

Last night I went to the Bicycle Gold Coast meeting that was called about two days prior (nice bit of notice there). The usual guff really, I kind of think Linda has her own agenda with regard to where the club is going -- and that seems to be the way they do things. Linda has some good ideas, and puts a lot of time in, so I'm not criticising her particularly, but it would be nice if a few other ideas got a look in occasionally.

They all still seem a little too focussed on the bike path agenda -- even in situations where this is clearly not the solution. It's almost as if some people have read too many text books. Still, it wasn't all bad, the temperature on the late ride home was a near perfect 15 degrees C, and I did get a contact in Melbourne for when I head for Victoria later in the year.

Still waiting for some news on this camera. I called them this afternoon, but they still can't tell me anything yet. Looks like I'll have to dig out the old 35mm Nikon for the tour in three days (need to get some film for that one). Just as well I took my grandmother's advice and held on to it. However, they way Kodak were talking gives me the impression that they might just honour the warranty on the digital. Might.
