Hi Guys,I got one of these earlier in the year for some of our wildlife trips overseas.What settings are useful for using it as a road bike recording camera? Specifically want it as a safety device.…Continue
Hi Guys,I am looking for a helmet mounted light with a remote switch thats not an absolute monster cost. Purpose is for:1. Descending in the dark.2. Surveying sides on very, very country roads for…Continue
"Wow, truly amazing of them both. I just realised I could use the aus tracking app to see if i can find some wheels to suck during the ride maybe. Hmm.
Is Claus the oldest, I heard there's an 81 year old? Would be great to take a photo…"
This is my tracking in case you want to see what I have been doing. Dil says when I am on a ride it shows how many kmph i have been doing, how long i took to do that last 10min stretch and stuff. Might be interesting to you, since your the…"
"Thanks for the tips Michael, Howard introduced me to a little headlamp thingy, like we use for our travels which I will incorporate as a little helmet light.
I must say I am excited now, all the tough training is done and now its a matter of…"
"Awesome Bill, thanks, I will set it up on the Garmin and check it out. Yes I will follow signs, but having a route is nice also to keep track of how much to go next checkpoint or end of day etc.
I am not planning on riding with anyone…"
"Thanks so much Bill, I downloaded a couple of maps. One for NSW for testing and one for PBP. So basically I rename it as the same name as the current map file isnt it?
Thanks for so much for going over the details via messenger too :)"
"Bill, I know you posted some info about an alternative site to download a map for the 520. I cant find it.
I want to get a map of france for the PBP route - though really the tracking might be enough via breadcrumb trail i suppose. But why…"
"An audacious plan Rob, something similar I considered way back but I think I will do a 100 the next day instead.
I dont think I will be chasing the fast climbers all day again, I feel I need a slightly more relaxed big rides this week and next to…"
"Big effort Chris, the conditions were far from ideal. But well done for trying and I admire your audacious attitude. Glad you finished safely, all that rain would have made that ride dangerous, especially in the night. Nice to have a chat to you…"
"Best of luck, Chris and Andrew! I havent done any gravel rides this year and doing a 600 or 400 with that much gravel near PBP is not a great idea for me.
I think I will try one of the two next year, if I am around.
Very brave Chris, hope all…"
"Oh my God Andrew, you have signed up for the impossible ride!
Question - how much gravel riding is there in the night in this? Also the gravel climbs and descents, are they difficult ones for a climbing amature?"
"And Garmin announces the Edge 530 which DCRainMaker says "it might be the best bike computer Garmin’s ever made", also a 830 which is much the same as 530 but with a touch screen, no Oz prices or availability yet but expect to be…"
"Congrats Andrew, very well done to on the Wahine!!! Good you and Francis stuck together too, makes it a lot more enjoyable/tolerable.
Super efforts jumping from the 600 to 1200 too, i had to a do 1k first ;)"
"Main thing you enjoyed the rides Bill. Shame about the saddle issues :(
Someone gave me a tip to use Body Mechanic too. Michael Wong used Steve Hogg, supposedly is excellent for Audax. Others rate him very highly I know. He becomes a lifelong…"
"Oh super, I must wish Francis good luck. I am sure it will be a super adventure for both of you!
Also means you will be both eligible for the ACP Randonneur 5000 after doing PBP!
I am sure you will do fine on it, I assume its the Wahine?"
