Surviving the Alpine Classic Extreme (ACE250).

Posted on January 26, 2011 at 10:30am 10 Comments

Last Sunday, I rode my first Audax Alpine Classic Extreme (or the ACE 250) down in Northern Victoria. This ride was simply fantastic and the thing I love about Audax riding is the opportunity to…


The difference 6 months makes

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 6:38pm 7 Comments

On Saturday I returned to Tempe Velodrome for some club racing. By chance I was able to borrow a car and dust off my track bike that has been looking at me with disappointed eyes for so long. It was the first time I'd raced in 6 months and quite a revelation for me in terms of accessing my own fitness. Since moving over to the socalled 'wrong' side of the bridge in March, I hadn't been out on any hard sunday morning training rides with Dulwich… Continue

Everyone's a critic

Bicycles seem to be great conversation starters between strangers. Last saturday night was one such occasion. I was catching the train into the city with my fuji touring bike and there was another guy on the train who also had his bike. He then said to me "Thats's a great touring bike you've got there... [thanks]... but its no good for riding in the city". Oh??? "Why is it no good for riding in the city?" I asked. "Well, the wheels aren't strong enough"... Huh?... I didn't digress in to the… Continue

Welcome to Heffron Park

Posted on December 22, 2008 at 1:00pm 4 Comments

On Saturday was my last race at Heffron Park. I've decided to leave it for a while as it is so time consuming while I'm trying to finish my studies and maintain some semblance of a social life on weekends.

Here is some footage from the start of the race. Paul Craft (or Crafty) decided to lay into one guy when he turned up wearing a world champhionship jersey. Crafty does this any time a person wears a jersey that does not belong to them. This guy should have known better. He was… Continue

"Oh cool pics Rob, nice :) And congrats on the YRR, has been a hard year for you to be doing it since you were sort of not in the mood to ride as much! Takes dedication to get that done for sure. Also well done to Ed and all the others on Epic ride,…"

"Apologies for the delay in posting. Great pics Rob, and congrats on your YRR. I completed my first YRR on that ride too. Good you enjoyed your day Bill. The chips at the Olive Bar n Grill tasted nice after riding in that wind from along the river."

"woohoo, YRR done, pressure is off. Good to read your tyre choice worked for you. Several 200km riders had punctures, including a huge gash in a tyre that Howard helped fix with gaffer tape and a magnetic P plate as boot."

Hi Adrian
Thanks for your comment. I'm actually planning to join the DHBC 'saturday slowies' in the next few weeks. I'm generally ok with early morning starts. Quiet roads at that time of day is a great motivator for me since I'm fairly freaked out by riding in traffic at the momment.
Hope to see you there.

Maybe you could have a look at my Flickr account and let me know which images you think we should use for our postcard and poster next year? Just leave a comment on the ones you like.

Hi Adrian,
My friend Michelle French is organising the bike love parade that opens the Bicycle Film Festival on the 13th of November. We will be riding from Cheeky Transport in Georgina St Newtown at 6.30pm, along King St to Sydney Park for various festivities.
Michelle wants me to provide a gang of painted riders and I think it’s a good chance to promote SBAR. Would you and your friends like to attend? We will meet at Cheeky at 5.15 - 5.30pm. Should be finished by 7pm.
Let me know if you'd like to join us
