Former PM Tony Abbott is off on his annual Pollie Pedal again, leading a group of politicians on a marathon eight-day charity bike ride to benefit Carers Australia. It is the 19th Pollie Pedal, with fellow MPs Josh Frydenberg, Christian Porter and Angus Taylor all aboard.

Starting in Canberra on April 3, the route will take the pollies through regional NSW towns Yass, Cootamundra, Temora, Forbes, Orange and Goulburn, visiting schools and hosting community events along the way. On Wednesday, Abbott dropped in to Caragabal Public School, just outside of West Wyalong, to visit students and hand over a copy of his book 'Battle Lines.'

The children, it seemed, were not too excited.

Fairfax photographer Andrew Ellinghausen snapped this shot of Abbott presenting the book to the school captains, as a dozen children watch on. Check the faces. They don't seem super stoked about this.





Here's the same school captains inside the school, out of the sun.

And here they are, admitting that the book "will probably be boring."

Sorry Tony.
