"Lucky there was no flying sheet iron. Best not to ride through a storm IMHO, and after 30 years of issuing Severe Thunderstorm Warnings at the Bureau. Another lot of storms coming through now."

Hordes of Cyclists

Posted on April 5, 2011 at 1:40am 7 Comments

The Herald article on injuries to MAM started off with "hordes of middle aged men have taken up cycling..." so I thought it appropriate to mention the Horde of MAM (quite a few MAW too) I saw in Annandale on Sunday. I was just returning from a ride  with LBUG via some of Clover's new cycleways. We started with 10 riders, which is about an average turnout for LBUG. Sometimes we get 15 or even 20, and sometimes only a  few gnarly old regulars turn up, but it doesn't matter, we go…

John Howard's Oak vandalised.

Posted on November 23, 2010 at 10:00pm 1 Comment

Eight LBUG riders rode up to Katoomba on Saturday and down on Sunday. No deaths, had a great weekend.



Can report that John Howard's oak tree at Faulconbridge in the Avenue of Prime Minister's Oaks was vandalised sometime between when we passed by on the up trip and when we went past on the down trip. Not by us!



We rode up from Emu Plains via the Knapsack Bridge cycle path (used to be the highway once) and along a path alongside the motorway to the Lapstone underpass, along… Continue

Who was the cyclist doing 60 down Parramatta Road today?

Posted on July 12, 2010 at 10:09pm 2 Comments

I was driving through Burwood on Parramatta Road today when I came level with a cyclist on a red and blue Orbea flat barred road bike, maybe a 29er. It was an exotic looking machine with what looked like front suspension. The rider was a slight dark complexioned fellow, possibly of Indian or Sri Lankan extraction. Anyway, he was doing close to 60 when I drew level, and sitting on about 50 on a fairly flat section of road, slowing down briefly on the rises. He kept up with me for a couple of km… Continue

Randwick's got a good one

Posted on February 10, 2010 at 10:55pm 4 Comments

I ride to La Perouse via Randwick and Maroubra Beach regularly with LBUG and others, coming back via Denison and Banks Sts and always enjoy the run but there are a few places that bug me along the way, so I decided to email Randwick Council with a photo of the offending places. I figure you might as well point out problems and hazards you observe to Councils because, you never know, they might fix them and make your next ride better, or some other cyclists will benefit. And it helps to get it… Continue

Road to Byng

Posted on April 30, 2009 at 12:12am 3 Comments

The country between Bathurst and Orange north of the Mitchell Highway is very pretty but rugged. On the map there is a place named Byng about half way, which looked like it was just a "locality", no facilities. Our touring group (LBUG Tourers) planned to ride from Newbridge to Orange, via Blayney and Byng and the Icely Road on the Saturday of the Anzac weekend and return via Milthorpe on Monday, with a day ride from Orange on… Continue

Hey there Bob, welcome to the site from a fellow Leichhardtian

Hey Bob
Thanks for the message. The forum topics drop off the front page, and even the forums home page, but they are still there. You can search for them - http://www.sydneycyclist.com/forum/topic/search?q=epping

I also think my Leichhardt stint is coming to an end, the owners of this house are moving back in and I have to find somewhere else to live, I think it's time to buy, and I think it won't be Leichhardt.

Sure, Bob. I am happy for you to add my photos to your gallery. Can you download them from this site or do I need to send them?
At 2:14pm on August 12, 2008, Neil Alexander said…
Nice selection of pics there Bob. Pole-ishness seems rife on cycleways everywhere. I'll try to get around to uploading some other pics -- I have quite a nice one of a cycleway in Brewarrina. No pole in the middle, though.

BTW, in your caption to my pic it might be worth adding a comment on the unusual garden aspect. It could well be the only pole in the middle of a cycleway anywhere which has a garden bed across the path to it. I'd be keen to see/hear of another example, anyway.

Havent been for a ride this week, hip has been sore. Some sort of tendonitis in the glutes. Pain in the arse you might say. Physio recommends strengthening exercises and stretches. Anyway, have had almost two weeks off the bike but hope to go on the WWW ride this weekend. This is an annual LBUG two day ride, Windsor to Wyong or Wyong to Windsor, staying at Wisemans'Ferry on Saturday night. About 160 km all up. Bumble Hill up from Yarramalong is steep and a classic climb but this year we are going down Bumble Hill. A few years ago the last few coming down got hit by a hail storm to add to the excitement.

G'day Bob,

For your a future WWW ride, you might like to try a bit of a variation that includes some of my Hunter to Hawkesbury ride. Train to Hornsby - ride the old Pacific Highway to Greenmans Caravan Park near Marlow - arrange a week or 2 in advance for them to ferry you all to Spencer, then ride to Wisemans Ferry for the night. Off to Windsor the next day. The ferry trip is worthwhile, and the old Pacific Highway is worth the effort.

Hi Bob, I saw your message about Leichhardt Council. Do you know whether they are going to increase the bike parking at the Aquatic Centre? I regularly use that facility and, particularly in the afternoons and weekends, it is packed with bikes.

Bob, you haven't commented on my query about Cardrona and the climb to it in the Cycle tour of NZ discussion. I'm keen to know!
At 9:43pm on March 6, 2009, Neil Alexander said…
Oh, yes you have! But what was the condition of the road -- it has been sealed, has it not? They were talking about doing it in '99 when I was there -- Neil
