My first blog in Sydney

Although I currently live in the Vegas, Brisbane and hate it. Yes thats right I hate it. I love the weather and i love the bike racing up here but the people, drivers and my work are the worst I have met. You politely wave to a fellow cyclist as you pass and NO repsonse.

Happy New Year 2009 - and some odd bike designs

Firstly happy New Year to all. Started it well myself by buying a fixie on ebay. Something to do up and pounce around on.
