So I do my first CountryLink trip from Sydney to Canberra with the bike.
Travellers with bikes are required to book for the extra baggage, pay an additional $12, and fit the bike in the box provided (front wheel and pedals removed).
Arriving in Canberra I used my Android Google Maps to navigate to E's house. I figured I should try the bike trail setting.
I got a little surprise. The all knowing super computer tried to take me through a scenic route, via Red Hill Nature Park. This would have been fine had I been on a mountain bike, but alas I was on a single speed road bike. After about 30 minutes of my episodic Tourette syndrome, schlepping, getting too far to quit, I figured it was a photo opportunity.
