new wheels

My loving wife and daughters got me my best father's day gift yet. I love it. It has only been a couple of months and I already have put in +500 km on it. That's right. Finally after 7 years I am getting back into riding. My baby is a Felt F75 - carbon fork, Ultegra / 105 components, aluminum frame w/ carbon seat stay, shimano wheel set.
Melbourne is a bike crazy city. Every morning along the beach, thousands of cyclist roll-out and bike to the end of the peninsula. Cars are pretty friendly and there are plenty of bike lane.
I've stopped taking the train and am now riding the 17+ km to work. My route is great too. Most of it is along the beach. Then I cut into the scenic city.
ROUTE - 17.2 km one way

Brighton Beach

Royal Botanical Gardens
