A long way for a pie?

Posted on October 8, 2013 at 11:12pm 3 Comments

Well I rode 150 Km yesterday and ticked off one of the rides I have wanted to do since I arrived here in Canberra. I have been planning to ride to a number of the towns around the ACT. I have rode to Goulburn 4 times and Bungendore once. I had planned to visit Yass earlier in the year when my wife was in Sydney for her high school reunion but wound up having to cancel that when the reunion was cancelled. For the past week she has been in Brisbane visiting a cousin who is suffering cancer and…

Jonathon's bogus adventure no 1

Posted on June 10, 2012 at 3:33pm 3 Comments

I have been catching up with friends and family by riding from Canberra to Goulburn catching the train to either Springwood or Lithgow. I usually take the Federal Highway to Gollector then ride to Breadlebane and take the Hume Highway shoulder to Goulburn. The thing is touring is pretty much like commuting riding the same route gets boring. There are some quite interesting towns and villages in the Southern Tablelands that would make a good alternative to the regular route and yesterday I…

Resurecting Iggy the story so far

Posted on May 14, 2011 at 5:04pm 0 Comments

A while ago I asked if I should restore Iggy and the vibe seemed to be that the project should go ahead. I have begun with the purchase of an A-head converter & a handlebar stem from a local bike shop. I attempted to remove the old handlebar stem and basically suceeded in removing the bolt that held it in but not the actual stem itself.

I was able to remove the handlebars and put them on the new stem but the old stem remained stuck. I tried everything from twisting and turning and…

Amy's Ride Canberra - 2011 edition.

Posted on March 14, 2011 at 7:01pm 5 Comments

Hi everyone today I took part in Amy's Ride Canberra 2011. This year they had combined it with the Big Canberra Bike Ride. I took Black Magic for the ride. I packed a 2nd tube and the full puncture repair kit. I got to the park in front of old parliament house and picked up my number. I got the jersey I ordered and a free T-shirt from a previous event - probably the Parra Pedal ride, I packed all this into the jersey pockets. I got my number pinned on and was ready for the ride start at… Continue

Goulburn Cycle Grand Prix

Posted on September 20, 2010 at 6:55pm 1 Comment

My apologies to people who have already read a similar post on a couple of other forums I contribute to but this ride was good so I thought I would mention it here. On Sunday morning I went to Goulburn for the cycle grand prix, which was held as part of NSW bike week. On offer were a choice of the 85, 50 and a community fun challenge around a park. I got to the park which was the start point for the Cycle Grand Prix and signed on and got a number and a bag with some…

Hi Jonathon, sorry I should have done this sooner. I have been extremely busy with family matters lately. I will contact Kevin Young (CEO of Cycling NSW) about Amy's Ride in Sydney and get back to you when I hear what he has to say.

And dealing with anything that requires balls for that matter. They are a complete waste of space, IMHO.
