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!
Brilliant story John
Thanks Cogs. Well worth it.
Re your post on the traffic backup this morning -
A ride from Mosman to RNSH is a very pleasant trip, all on back streets - no traffic, no footpaths!
Looking great John - congrats on a superb lifestyle change. I cant believe we are still yet to meet, having met a fair few of the Sydney Cyclists and having spoken to you on the phone too!
Have fun in Bright - thats real God's country in my opinion, the best place I've ever been riding (ok i am not the most experianced admittedly!)
Top effort John. Enjoy your riding
You too Andrew!
