I have an 80s steel frame that's been re-sprayed and re-worked, and it's now my commuter. Still breaking in that Brookes saddle!
Also have a white Masi. Sittin pretty!
And the kickaround bike. It's a beastly entry level step through trek. It's been re-srayed and re-worked, and makes a great pub bike. I *want* to say it's unstealable, except that it WAS stolen once. About 3 weeks later I ran into a guy riding it, so my friend and I stole it back! Brilliant!
Met up with Adam, went down to the Lord Nelson, enjoyed a beer and a chat, went to the Fish markets for lunch (fish and beer) then eventually made our way closer to Victoria Park (near Sydney Uni). We had to part ways at Redfern Station - Adam had to go to band practice, and I cycled back towards Central. Would have gone all the way to Hyde Park, but I had commitments at 5:30pm, so catching a train home and ensuring I got there on time was important. Worked out quite well.
I plan to try some other get-togethers. I am looking at places around Sydney to ride, using bikely and some books which recommend certain routes. Hope to do another one in a few weeks. I was occupied over this weekend with an on-campus session for my correspondence subject at university.
Keep in touch, and I'll try to be better at organising these events. Oh, and I am very open to suggestions and ideas and generally hearing what sort of places you are interested in going, places you would like to eat, etc. I often just like to ride for the sake of riding and enjoying what-ever views I see, but I try to organise something that everyone can enjoy.
I hope you're still interested (and registered) to do the Spring Cycle?? If you are, I suggested we meet at St Mary's Church steps on the corner of Miller and Ridge St, at 6.45am on Sunday for Spring Cycle, does that work for you?
