Until this evening ... with climbs at times up to 18%, no 20% and then 22%. Let's not call Monte Zoncolan the hardest climb in the Giro ... let's call Zoncolan the hardest climb in Europe.At last, a…Continue
"Dabba, thanks. Snakes probably won't be a problem for you at this time of year! That's no good, I was really looking forward to getting.square.
I'm just waiting for the East Coast Low to wind down and for the rain to stop around the…"
"Camps as rough as mine?
Dabba, I rough at nothing, absolutely ... I ride with a mobile kitchen.
I'm heading off tomorrow to ride along the BNT's Main Trail to New England and then back to my home in Canberra. There's enough…"
"... and find a place to rough camp ...
There are several TSRs just off and beside the Hume Hwy? Like Lambs TSR on Wargeila Road and Bowning Railway TSR below the impressive Mount Bowning. If you're coming from Gunning on the Coolalie Road, at…"
"Dabba, G'day. That track is for Emergency Services vehicles, supposedly. The use of it isn't encouraged (wink), although it is on a Crown Easement. Crown Easements are public land.
My best wishes.
""I think it is an entirely misunderstood perception that the entire group is acting against an individual. Most of the group behind the lead riders would not even notice."
Absolutely. The Lycra clad wannabees are too busy looking around to…"
"Peter, G'day. The intersection is on the inside of a curve and the visibility is almost nil. When I'm driving my car, I wind the window down so I can here if there is traffic coming ... because I cant see it coming with more than 1-2…"
"Absolutely, I couldn't agree more with your comment.
I live on corner with the exact road markings. We were told that there had to be two road deaths before a road cushion was installed to CALM the traffic ... one person last month made…"
My leg isn't looking too bad now. Only two weeks ago a doctor was questioning whether I should still have the bite location cut out. I'd rather sit it out and wait for the skin to repair in its own good time.
When I was bitten…"
"How were you able to get help/medical attention?"
I phoned 000 and 000 then stayed on the line until the ambulance arrived.
" ...and how long did it take to get to you?"
So long that the doctors (about 10 of…"
"The story is, the Eastern foreshores of Googong Dam are very snakey places.
How is the snake? ... it felt soft and squishy under my foot.
... why was it anti-cyclist? Eastern Brown Snakes are anti-everything when they're trodden on,…"
"Nightmare puncture gallery? ... I often joked about pinch flats being called snake bites.
Then I got a puncture on the Queanbeyan River Fire Trail, about 20 weeks ago. One fang punctured my leg and the other fang scratched the skin. It took 15 weeks…"
"We have had Al Jazeera on Transact cable, for almost 10 years. We originally purchased the news service as an add-on, then as it became more popular here, it has become a free news service placed in general packagers.
"Omar, at last the silly season is over.
I'll make a few phone calls firstly. To locate the main people who were the organisers and pick their brains, and see if they're able to chat.
Please expect an email from me in a couple of days…"
Hi Warren, yes got your reply. Thanks. Blue waterholes is a magical place. I walked through there and on another occasion drove there for a picnic with wife and, then baby, daughter in the late 80's. It hadn't occurred to me since I've started cycling that it would probably be an sensational destination for a multi-day ride. I'll have to do a bit of research into the logistics. Thanks for the inspiration.
