As I was driving along a very scenic route from Jingellic to Tallangatta today I was wondering what to write for my Daily Snail blog. Well, wonder no more!
I turned up in Tallangatta today and discover there’s 3000 Lycra clad bicycle riders due in town today as part of the Great Victorian Bike Ride. I think the word for that is synchronicity……..
(Synchronicity is a concept which holds that events are “meaningful coincidences” if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related)
The town has created a festival around this influx of people with loads of activities for both locals and visitors.
I’m out of here! The bike riders are coming into town as I am leaving – glad I’m not stuck behind them like these cars!
I leave you with my poem, On Ya Bike, about this Lycra clad hazard, written after being stuck behind a mob of them on the winding Pyrenees Highway in Victoria some years ago.
And here’s my brief, cheeky rejoinder called The Drivers Revenge
