The Circularity of Canberra

As dalekboy  has just discovered, the circular layout of Canberra's roads can be confusing. 

It still catches me on occasion.

I needed to get to a post office yesterday to mail off my registration form for the NZ tour so I left work early and rode off intending to go to the Kingston Post Office which appeared to be the closest to work. 

Of course I didn't get anywhere near it because you have to cross the curves to get there and its just so easy to miss the turn offs. Naturally, I ended up at the Manuka Post Office which was only marginally further away but easier to get to...if you just relax and go with the curves.

Even if I didn't get to where I wanted, I still got to a post office in time so its all good really.

    I actually got up early enough today to ride with the Canberra Mob. A nice ride in company around the east basin of Lake Burley Griffin. Felt good.
