Morning ride on the La Trobe loop. Hard work early on - not really warmed up and a steady headwind - but took advantage of that in the second half. Oriel Road really is a nice way to come down on a bike, and particularly when there's a tail wind (perhaps I should have found this out at some point in the 17 years when it might have been part of a plausible commute route). Still nothing resembling a morning peak hour, although I would have been going against it anyway.
With everything else that's going on the world, the attempted mercenary invasion
of Venezuela didn't get a great deal of media attention. I'm not sure why they thought that an invasion force of 60 was going to be able to defeat an army of 300,000 (maybe they got ideas from the Venezuelan navy losing to a cruise ship a few weeks back?), but perhaps the most bizarre thing was that they (or their backers) tweeted the raid while it was in progress.
