Gary Theiss replied to Richard (Poncho)'s discussion Almost instant karma.......
"If you behave in a meek manner, bullies will always try to walk on you. Same thing you see in schools. Stand up for yourself in a manner that shows you will not be treated like dirt, and most tend to give a bit of huff & puff before backing…"

"I would say that the ute peeps are NOT locals. Like I said - the attitude of this bunch will not change, and they will behave in exactly the same manner to other cyclists, just as they have to earlier cyclists. If you want drivers to change their…"

"These people, who swerve at you & shout, would do the same thing to almost every cyclist that they come across. Regarding "Pity the next cyclist"? How about check up on the cyclist before who may not have had the skill to avoid the…"

Gary Theiss replied to Brian Trench's discussion Abuse, post Warney
"No increase in rants or deliberately dangerous driving at all. I ride from Bankstown to Blacktown (& back again) a few times a week. I get bogans in V8s giving me room on the road in Blacktown. My observations are that the more affluent people…"

Gary Theiss replied to Paul Jackson's discussion Shane Warne vents his views about cyclists on twitter
"Nobody has mentioned this yet. Allegedly, Warne deliberately, willfully, drove his vehicle to cause collision - with a person. That is common assault. This is nothing about cyclists versus cars now. The real question is road rage - criminal…"

Gary Theiss replied to Steven Lamb's discussion Closest hills to Parramatta for training
"Another alternative is to ride a false flat two or three gears higher than comfortable. Hold a steady cadence at about 75 rpm & just push until you can't. roll back the other way spinning an easy gear. turn around & repeat."

Gary Theiss replied to bykenmore's discussion Hill training for Gong ride
"Lilyfield Rd at the rowers club is a dead end.   No through traffic means less hassle. Worth a look. And easy to drive a car to in case you explode with the effort, or need to head somewhere else afterwards, or don't wish to deal with…"

Gary Theiss replied to bykenmore's discussion Hill training for Gong ride
"With only 2 weeks to go your timing is a bit short.   Try Lilyfield Rd near the Rowers club - it is quite steep from the club towards the city. Warm up very well. Then do repeat efforts. Not too easy a gear Aiming for cadence of about 60 -…"

Gary Theiss replied to Blue's discussion My Achilles heel is... My Achilles Heel
"May just be an over use style injury. If you haven't done long rides previously it would be on the cards. Try some rest & a minor exercise to let it settle down. Good on you for giving it a solid go."
