The road back - second stage

Posted on September 13, 2014 at 6:44pm 0 Comments

I have begun the second stage of the road back. I decided to take myself shopping the other day and decided to check out the pricing on helmets. Given the last one prevented the prang from being worse than it was, I decided to get one from the LBS rather than go online. I got the feeling that the online price war has had it's effect on the local bike shops given one only stocked RJays and the others likewise had limited stock. Eventually I found a Scott MTB helmet on special which fitted…


On the road back!

Anyone who read this will know I had a prang not so long ago and copped at least 4 broken ribs and wrote off a helmet. Well I have gone back to work - they were snowed under while I was away. I am getting back into the swing of things and hopefully will get on top of things by the end of the week. 

I was told I would have at least 6…


A long way for a pie?

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…

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.
