Musical cows

As in a lot of Europe the farms around The Austrian lakes rarely have permanent fences. Instead temporary yards are set up, sometimes with a few posts and wire and often these days with an electric fence. Many animals roam free and cows often wear these bells to help with identification- each cow ringing a different tone. The effect is rather gorgeous and when you are cycling silently along you can hear the bells from hundreds of meters away.

    I loved the cow bells at the UCI events. People ringing them really added to the atmosphere. I did think I would buy some, but didn’t! I saw Lynette at Queens Park on the Sunday .. hardly recognised her – green & gold wig, flag draped over shoulders, cow bells dangling from waist! What a supporter – YEH!!! Go Aussies!!! My brush with fame was on the Friday night after the under 23 road race. I got Michael Matthews’ autograph. I was drinking at The Edge with him – Well, I was drinking and he was drinking … and we happened to speak at some stage! He is such a young boy, but a world champion! Enjoy your adventures Jan & Ian.
