"The weight of my bike (including accessories and luggage) is close to half my body weight. That's not a problem when I'm actually riding the bike. The hard part is carrying it up stairs or pushing it across sand."

Plugging the Western Sydney Cycling Network Community Ride on Sunday 2nd March starting at the Bike Shed at Fairfield City Showgrounds (Entrance off Moonshine Rd). Please be there at 9am for a 9:30am departure. We will be doing the Prospect Reservoir Loop, ending back at the bike shed for a free sausage sizzle. It is a community ride, so will be at a relatively slow/easy pace.
