Back into riding after 25 years off!
I feel like a 10 year old on my bike and am enjoying riding to work once or twice a week.
I've lost 14kg since getting back into cycling when I bought the Muirwoods in June 2011 to ride with my daughter. Cholesterol has dropped from 7.5 to 5.0 during that time as well.
I feel healthier now than in the last 15 years.
April 2013 - Now lost 18kg!

Oh dear. According to that I'm not really cut out for knighthood.
I can't grow hair on top of my head and hate shaving!

I'll have to look around for a chainmail jersey and knicks with solid pewter chamois :-)

Joys of the family bike ride

We're staying up in the Myall Lakes NP as we do every October and this morning we went on my traditional family bike ride.

The weather was a little cooler, a little cloudy, perfect. Rain predicted for the afternoon. OK.

It all started well. A few kms down the dirt road and over the Bomba Point ferry and down the Mungo Road for a walk through the Mungo Brush rain forest.







Lovely. We made it to the rain forest just in time for a light shower. No big deal.… Continue

Great Ocean Road Otways Classic

We got down to Torquay on Friday late afternoon. It was absolutely freezing, and raining and blowing pretty hard when we went out for dinner.

I was so glad I packed everything and bought arm warmers just the week before!

It was overcast, damp and a bit breezy a the beach for the start.…
