Overcast most of the day at 24. I went to Cavendish and cycled the Homestead trail as part of the 55+ games. The trail is about 9 km and you make a guess on how long it will take you to cycled it.

This afternoon I cycled from Milton to Hunter River and back to Milton so the total for the day was 43 km. Also 8 km on EB.
