Cycling in Sydney Australia
Thank you Sydney Cyclist and all Sydney Cyclist inhabitants!
I think I became a member here around July - August 2011. On doctors orders, I had to get a healthier lifestyle - my weight was slowly ballooning and with two young children, I wanted to still be around as they grew up.
I bought a bike and started riding again, after around 25 - 30 year off.
Having forgotten almost everything I ever knew about bikes and riding, Sydney Cyclist has been an amazing and invaluable resource!
Last night I weighed myself and I have reached a milestone, or discarded a millstone perhaps -
105kg in 2011.
I'm feeling better then I've felt in 20 or 30 years.
And on Friday morning, I'm heading down to Bright for a few days of mountain climbing! Never thought I'd be enjoying that :-)
Old me smiling, sitting on my arse .................................... New me grinning as I climb Tawonga Gap!
Thanks again everybody.
Thank you Damian - keep up the good work!
A very worthy forum topic too, have fun with those hills, someone has to do it (so that I don't)
Now we know why someone would do hill repeats !
You can have my empty 7 Peaks Passport, I don't think I will be needing it before the snows come, got it last year in a burst of unrealistic optimism
Well done, John! Keep up the good work.
Thanks Adam,will do.
Not even Duncan Gay will stop me!
Earl morning and light misty rain would be nice!
I can't imagine chugging up on a loaded tourer.
I need to give it a try at some stage. Maybe next year!
