Cycling 50:00  18.0 km (2:47 / km)
Shortish ride up the Maribyrnong from Footscray on my way to pick the street-O controls up from Margi and Ted's place. Once I'd picked my way through the non-obvious detours around a couple of building sites, got onto the river path, which seemed OK in theory but is rather narrow and attracts a fair bit of pedestrian traffic on a sunny Sunday morning (some of it on four legs and, predictably, illegally off-leash). Never really felt as if I could relax and settle into a rhythm.
Did manage to get a few things done today - met with Aston and Max to do the on-paper checking of the courses for the Vic Relays (they're setting, I'm controlling), then went on to check control sites for Wednesday night's event. Also managed to fit a few hours work in between that (wondering in the process what's happening at Festival Hall which led to a steadily growing queue building there throughout the day).
And, just to prove that more than one government can do ridiculous things, the Russian parliament has voted to decriminalise domestic violence (unless it's done more than once a year).
