Had a lovely ride today, from Marrickville to Kurnell and then on to Cape Solander, a 2.7km trip through the national park just beyond the suburb of Kurnell.
The first km or so is a lovely cruise up a small hill and through some very shady groves of… Continue
Every so often you experience one of those awakenings that reminds you of why you took up the cycling habit. For me, “Ride to Work Day” as part of Bike Week in Queensland’s South-East, was one of those days. The day started at 5 AM with a tempo ride to bayside…
On Friday the 7th of March, I went to Albury for the Amy’s Ride Albury. This ride was held as part of the Multisport Albury City (MAC) event held over 2 weeks (see http://www.multisportalburycity.com.au/events/20081111191.htm for more details).

(Note: I have already removed one of the spokes so I can purchase new ones - I already have some spare spokes for the cassette side at home)
So, I'm riding down the M4 eastbound and I am about 1Km west of Homebush Bay drive when… Continue
I was riding towards Parramatta (under the M4) yesterday evening when I hear a bang and my back wheel decided to no longer turn. At first I did not know what had happened, everything looked ok except for the fact that my rear wheel was rubbing hard against the brake pad. Then I found the broken spoke. Argghhh!!! Hadn't we just been discussing this the other day? Why couldn't we have been discussing winning the lotto or something. To top that, the battery in my phone was flat. So of I start… Continue
