bit of an adventure this morning...I had not long let the boys off-lead in their usual spot when a cyclist approached from a side path - he slowed down when he saw the boys...as usual, Hodge came when called while Hunter decided he would take fright and run off...in the end he ran all the way home crossing a busy street along the way...meanwhile Hodge was a good boy and stayed with me...

I headed back to see where Hunter went (not knowing at that stage where he had gone)...then Tammie rang me to see if I was back saying Hunter was out the front!...who knew he would head home and make it safely...he wasn't interested in coming back out so Hodge and I went for our walk as usual...

my ride into work was much less eventful!

street O @ Ainslie...

up early to walk the boys before busing to work...

with Tammie back at work I only had one cycling sidekick for street O...

the assembly area was at Fisher Park between the shops and the edge of Mt Ainslie...Giles L was the course setter and I was expecting to cover all edges of the suburb and I wasn't disappointed!

it was deceptively hilly...
