PSA for the users of strava

Morning all,I just thought I would drop in an inform those users of strava who also use the Apple Watch as a secondary display or HR monitor that the latest version of strava has disconnected the watch app and the phone app. This means that if you start recording with your phone, you watch will not collect HR information or display any stats, also if you start on your watch, you will not see any statistics or record information from any bluetooth bike sensors.Personally I have my phone on my…See More

A new experience

Posted on August 29, 2015 at 6:57pm 3 Comments

So, today I found out what it feels like when fingers connect with spokes while doing 50+ km/h. It wasn't a nice feeling. All in all I am very lucky as I only lost some skin - nothing broken.

Anyway, next time I adjust my front derailer I will be a bit more careful.

Just thought I would share this pic I snapped yesterday after a bit of bike shopping with my ex:

From left to right: Byron Cheater (Piece of crap), Esperia Partner (new), Avanti Sprint (my old bike - might rebuild or retire), Potenza Forza (my new bike), BSO (my slow utility…

Afternoon all,



Just thought I would take some time out to tell you all of a fateful trip that started out as a three hour tour (not quite, a 80 minute commute). I had just gotten ready and was heading out. Each morning I have to navigate a flight of tiled steps that are usually covered in dead and dying flowers. I've always thought that one day I will slip and break something. Today was *almost* that day. As I took my first step and shifted my weight onto my right foot, out it went.… Continue

How was the fog this morning. I decided to snap a couple of shots as I was approaching the city this morning.



The first is looking towards the SHB from Anzac bridge.



The second is Pyrmont bridge looking towards the city:…

I've checked the website & it is very useful. thanks for that.

I've found responses to your "I love my work" to be heartening. How about a tab on this site for workplaces/buildings that cater for bikes in Sydney. It could describe the facilities available and who to contact to use them. Just a thought.

Hi Peter,
Got your SMS re NYE ride - Thanks.
We're probably having dinner at the Indian Restaurant in Rooty Hill (in the plaza area, just near Eddie Salas Cycles) before the ride if you'd like to join us.....6.30pm (Have to confirm with Restaurant yet though).

Hi Peter, So very sorry to hear about your bike being stolen. That must have made a happy night less happy! Do you think there is any hope in looking around at second hand or cash converters' shops? I don't even remember the brand - mainly because it was dark. Let me know if there's anything we can do to help/ Best regards for a much improved 2009, Leigh

Hi Peter, I don't know whether you have been keeping abreast of development vis a vis the Tweed Run, but your name was mentioned as a potential photographer for our photoshoot ride next Sunday (29th March from 8 am in CBD). Are you available/willing/equipped to help out?
At 11:45am on March 23, 2009, Ma Dame Vélo said…
Actually, just as I was writing that to you, Susan was writing an alternative arrangement option in the Tweed Run photoshoot discussion page. Now it looks like we are having the photoshoot on 5th April with Fixit taking the photos and bringing some Pashley bikes for us to pose with. So, don't worry about this weekend, I will let you know what develops .......it is getting really hard to find times when everyone is available.....

Hi Peter, it was great to bump into you again today. Perhaps next time I meet you I my brain won't be so fuzzy from work.

I hope you had a great ride home.

Hi Peter, I thought you were one of my Sydney Cyclist "friends" when I sent out invitation to this year's NYE ride. Please feel invited and let me know whether you can join us.
