I didn't think that Brisbane got cold.
But I think my memory is rather poor because it is fucking freezing right here! Maybe it is also because I never rode bikes out in Samford Valley when I lived here before. Samford valley and surrounds being about 5 or so degrees colder!
I thought my legs weren't working, but persevered on my ride for 2hrs.
Coming home, I was riding up Samford rd out of the valley, when suddenly the temperature picks up a couple of degrees. By the time I have descended back into Ferny Grove, it's almost pleasant.
Tomorrow I do multiple river loops and Coot-tha's to keep warm!
Meanwhile, in my spare time I am reading The Secret River by Kate Grenville. Really, really good and thoroughly recommended.
