This was the view from Iron Cove Bridge tonight as I rode home. Very pretty. And on the other side of the bridge the light was glinting off the buildings in the distance, burnishing them with gold. All rather spectacular. (I took a picture of the buildings too, but it came out less well).

Of course, the motorists driving by in their cars missed all of this; all they can see is a monotonous concrete barrier and the lines of cars in front of them stretching through interminable traffic lights. I love the way cycling actually connects you with the city; fast enough that you can get about to different places but slow enough that you can stop and stare. Seeing a city through a windscreen is an anonymous, souless experience.
