Beer delivery

Last week, Toddler Dan turned two years old, so we had a birthday party. it was huge amounts of fun; large numbers of sugared-up toddlers charging about, pushing each other over and then wailing, a ridiculously large cake with butter icing slowly going rancid in the twenty-eight degree heat, and a whole load of thoughtful presents that were mostly broken within the…

Sydney-Melbourne 2 Safe routes

Somewhat aghast that charity riders and others are still using the dangerous Princess highway to Melb Please consider the following two routes on generally quite back roads. Some days there was virtually no traffic. The first route covers the 1993 Bicycle Victoria ride, a camping trip, and the second route comes from Terry Threlfall’s, (Terrys Cycling adventures), accommodated trip of 2003. Miss your trips and fruit cake Terry. A line per day is shown with some intermediate points…

Have you ever considered carrying an Epirb?

I would like to know if there are any other Mountain Bike riders who carry or have considered carrying a Personal Locator Beacon? I regularly ride tracks where my smart-phone has no signal and have considered getting a PLB in case the worst happens.

The Day of the Audax Ride 2012

Those who were there (Neil, Mr O', Matt_C, EMT,...?) please excuse yourselves from these..........  Here is the first photo....…

Tired Tyres

I hardly ever get punctures. Almost never. Just don’t believe in ‘em. The last time I had a puncture was in March, and the last time before that was – well, actually I don’t remember. In fact, I stopped getting punctures when I started using Conti Sports Contact tyres. Now, I’m not big on…
