Local and or general

People like to joke about how cold it gets in Ballarat during winter, but it can positively bake in summer. There are no seaside breezes, though it can be a couple of degrees cooler by the Lake. When it gets stinking hot, the kids and I decamp to my parents in Geelong, where they can paddle at the beach, or at least have access to airconditioning.

This weekend the Open Road Cycling Championships are taking place in Ballarat and Buninyong. The criterium was held last night, with Master BG keen to join in on the action. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that no training wheels are allowed…

Meanwhile for us, our weekend will be spent visiting the Lakeside Farmers’ Market early to beat the heat and heading off to the movies. Fantastic Mr Fox is playing and I don’t know who’s more excited, Master BG or myself.

And finally safe travelling to PS who is off on a 2 week wine and cycling jaunt to South Australia. Just remember not to combine the two at the same time…
