Cycling 1:00:00  21.0 km (2:51 / km)
I haven't slept well the last couple of nights; the prospect of continuing more or less in our current mode until December (not being publicly countenanced by anyone official, but probably what it would take for a realistic chance of getting down to zero) is unsettling. Weekends are probably worst for that sort of unsettlement; there's more time to think, and none of the (virtual) interaction that happens during a working week.
Given that, I didn't have high expectations for the ride, but it worked out reasonably well - taking the Ivanhoe option and then out west into the middle of Thornbury. Used all but 15 seconds of my allocation so judged that part of it pretty well.
Questionable real estate marketing claim of the day goes to the sign outside the tower at the top of Burgundy Street (which made some serious money for the person - a local doctor, I think - who spent something like $200,000 to buy an apparently useless block left orphaned by the diversion of Bell Street in the early 1990s), saying that if you wanted a similar apartment, there were some on offer in "leafy Alphington". There are certainly leafy parts of Alphington, but the part of it where the apartments in question are being built (the old paper mill site) is definitely not one of them.
