Cycling in Sydney Australia
I've been riding my, rather heavy, trike for the last few years and am always amazed how much I get to see on routes I have travelled along prior.
Yesterday I rode from Sutherland to Wollongong and it was very enjoyable. Average speed? 11 km/h and I enjoyed all 5 hours of it:
There's a blog on crazy guy on a bike by someone who rode all the way from Adelaide to Perth via the NT and the Kimberleys over a period of 18 months. His slogan is '20km is a good day at the office'
Brooza, slow is great when cycling. And safer. Anyway, regardless of the weight of your bike, the fitter you get, the faster you go. One of the best things about cycling is that regardless of traffic you get to you work at more or less the same time every time. Which makes it easy to plan your departure time accordingly and then sit back and enjoy the ride. And the satisfaction of getting up those hills. I'm a big fan of 'going at your own pace'.
