Cycling in Sydney Australia
Thought I'd start a positive post for all the new members....
Today, I cycled to two meetings in the city. It was awesome because:
Why is cycling awesome for you?
Love your work Kimberley!
Cycling is awesome because...
+1 for each of Damien's and for each of Kimberley's.
30kgs. WOW. Just wow.
Yeah, what he said. Except ~24kgs and my kid(s) will love it.
I'm sorry, by repeats you mean going up and down Black Mountain THREE TIMES?
I am totes impressed. Was there a couple of weekends ago and drove up the mountain thinking the whole time how I don't think I'd ever be able to do the cycle up. I really admire people who can.
And that's the other thing - the improvements you continually see in yourself.
And the worst of it is that, once you've caned yourself getting to the top, you hafta go back down to start over again, right? :-)
" whilst I munch on my 2nd round of lunch...so freakin' hungry after a big session this morning!!"
Know that feeling, I did an interval session at 5:30 morning. Had an omelette for brekky at about 7. By 9 I was starving and needed second breakfast :)
Because I get to explore and see parts of Sydney I would otherwise never have known to exist.
Because, on my heavy Dutch bike with panniers (between me and all my Stuff, I can be pushing 100kgs up a hill - and I am *not* some kind of Cadel-in-training!), I still keep pace with traffic on Victoria Rd in peak hour, enjoy the morning sunshine, smile at people's dogs, arrive at work in half the time it'd take me on the bus AND then don't have to go to the gym (and if you like gyms, that's fine, but they make me want to lose the will to live - and over a certain age one must Do Something to try and avoid becoming a non-communicable disease statistic).
Oh, and I met my boyf cycling. 'Nuff said. :-)
