Track Notes

Arrived 30mis early. Gathered the clues for geocache GC3CCTK Commonwealth Play. Rode into Commonwealth Park and found GCJ377 Commonwealth Creek.

A cooler day and evening, a lull between hot periods. 2 from CBC and 2 from Eternity church turned up.

We rode the route described above. As always, so many different people differently using the area – walkers, runners, bikers, kayakers, paddle boarders, kayak hockey?, sailors, dragon boaters. Drinkers and diners. Very pleasant.
