Morning ride on the La Trobe loop. Not especially energetic for the start but got going a bit later on. Don't think I've done this one in the morning before; 17 years of being on Heidelberg Road at this time of day in the reverse direction had taught me to expect that cars going the other way would be banked back to the Tower Hotel (on a good day) or the top of the hill (on a bad day), but nothing like that today. I suspect this has more to do with the new Chandler Highway bridge (removing a notorious bottleneck) than it does with the pandemic.
(I noticed yesterday that peak hour traffic was very light in the central city, but got progressively closer to normal the further you got out into the suburbs).
At the end I spotted a notice on the fence of the house at the end of our street, which on further examination turned out to be one of these
. I've normally associated such signs with the back blocks of rural Queensland and people wanting coal seam gas explorers to go away (or words to that effect); I could imagine them also being the territory of sovereign citizen types, although the inner north of Melbourne is not exactly their natural habitat.
