Edwins Bicycle Tour Downunder
Tuesday, 16 January 2007
Monday 15 January. Rest Day.Melbourne.

Today we started with unwrapping the bikes. Peter T found he had the first puncture of the trip caused possibly by impact on the tyre during baggage handling

We walked into town and stopped at one of many cafes for coffee. Then down to the River Yarra Promenade lined with the skyscrapers of the City

Then on to the Rialto Tower an 820ft office tower with an observation deck where we had great views of the City centre and had lunch in the Caf? at the top.

In the afternoon we got on the free city circle Trams reminding us of San Francisco and got of for a walk in the Carlton Gardens and a snooze in the grass in the warm afternoon sunshine. Temperatures were up to 25c.

In the evening we returned to the Yarra Promenade for a meal where Martin and Peter T had Kangaroo steaks. I decided not to offend the local wildlife and had Chicken.
