Set myself the challenge of cycling 500km over the week of Christmas whilst staying in Sydney after becoming inspired by the Rapha Festive 500 Cycle Challenge, and feeling the need to get some miles in as preparation for the Étape of the Tour de France I entered into.
I wonder how many photos were taken in Australia last week? Definitely a lot, that dust storm was some crazy weather.
The worst dust storm in decades hit Australia on Wednesday, blanketing Sydney in red dust, and snarling up the transport system as earthquakes, giant hailstones and even a tornado swept the east of the country.
Gale-force winds dumped thousands of tonnes of red desert dust on Australia’s biggest city, shrouding it in an eerie orange haze and coating the iconic Sydney Opera House in a fine layer of powder.
