    Whirlwind Sydney Visit

    Posted on September 22, 2011 at 12:35am 4 Comments

    Hey all


    I just spent an all too short couple of days in Sydney for a wedding. We arrived Wednesday night and left Monday morning, I did have a bike with me but ended up too busy / tired to ride much. I did do the Waterfall ride on Sunday, more on that in a moment.


    A couple of little points of reflection.


    Cycleways and bikes!


    Oh my god, whoever thought Sydney would start leading the way ? I don't know if you guys are noticing…


    Happy Birthday Miles

    Posted on September 4, 2011 at 12:36pm 11 Comments

    Three and a bit years ago I put up a video here of my little boy, then two years old, flying down the hill on a balance bike.


    A year later and he'd transitioned onto a bike with pedals and no training wheels and was doing pretty well.


    Today he is 6. This is the first ride of his new bike, a second hand…


    My weekend of wheel building

    Posted on June 29, 2011 at 12:14am 5 Comments

    On a cold morning in June, 9 men gathered around a table in Sydney. The topic of conversation was nipples.

    No, it's not what you might be thinking. Perverts!

    I'm talking of course about the first BikeWise Wheel Building course


    When Patrick announced the course back in May I said I'd consider coming down for it, the more I considered it the…


    TDU - The Twitter Ride

    Posted on January 15, 2011 at 11:23pm 3 Comments

    "Good morning Dublin. Who wants a ride this afternoon ?"


    That was how Lance's tradition of Twitter rides started. Since then he's put together rides in several cities, not so impromptu these days, police and ambulance are involved to make sure everyone is safe and the roads are managed.




    TDU Day 1 - Cav!

    Posted on January 15, 2011 at 2:14pm 2 Comments

    We flew out of Brisbane on Thursday morning and into Adelaide, and it appeared that we'd brought our weather with us. Neil Finn would be proud!


    After buying a couple of umbrellas Miles and I set out for a walk into the city. First stop, the very excellent Bicycle Express in the Adelaide CBD to organise a loaner bike for Miles (in case a certain opportunity comes up). If you ever need a bike or any bits and pieces…

    Congrats on the site! Timing is just right for me - I need to get my bike working and start communiting.

    Yeah, I think you were riding with us the day coming back from Waterfall and we joined on the back of a large group and I saw this dork in the full Discovery Channel outfit. Getting closer, I noticed his nice Medone bike and then I realised he was the real deal. So I snuck in beside him and had a chat for about 5 mins!

    Cheers! Looks like an interesting site you've built here, I'm still trying to come to terms with all it offers.

    Since you appear to have some IT-fu, can I get this site to syndicate an externally hosted RSS feed? I can put out an RSS feed of the Cycling category on my real blog, I don't want to maintain another one here.

    Looks a cool site Damian, thanks for the Welcome.

    Maybe thru here I might meet a few folk and get out on the bike more. Since the National Ride to Work Day I have learnt a whole lot more of the Sydney bike culture and find it most inspiring & your site seems a positive step up in that direction :).
