Flat as a tack


I got that flat feeling today. On the way back to the office from a meeting I turn the penultimate corner prior to my destination, and it feels all weird. Like the back wheel skidded out a little.I continue to roll along, and the weird feeling continues. It just all feels wrong, like some alien force is trying to take over the bike.

Riding from Tweed Heads to Sydney

Hi Everyone


I am after a bit of advice on riding on the Pacific Highway from Tweed Heads to Sydney. This year is 10 years since I was diagnosed with Leukemia and had a bone marrow transplant, so this year I am hoping to raise some money for a couple of foundations that supported me when I was unwell. I have been riding now for around 18 months as it has been a great way to exercise but with little impact on my joints that have been affected with all my treatment. What I want…

Amy's Ride Canberra - 2011 edition.

Hi everyone today I took part in Amy's Ride Canberra 2011. This year they had combined it with the Big Canberra Bike Ride. I took Black Magic for the ride. I packed a 2nd tube and the full puncture repair kit. I got to the park in front of old parliament house and picked up my number. I got the jersey I ordered and a free T-shirt from a previous event - probably the Parra Pedal ride, I packed all this into the jersey pockets. I got my number pinned on and was ready for the ride start at… Continue

Conquering Awaba Street?

I’ve been meaning to try this for a while; ever since it was raised nearly a year ago here. How quickly can you ride up Awaba Street, possibly the steepest street in central Sydney? I’m not much interested in how fast I go, but of course I did have another much more… Continue

Can anyone Help???

Hey... long story short. When I was in sydney I bought a brand new "Speedwell Classique 10 Spd" at a furniture auction, (I call it brand new as the bloke bought it for his wife and she never got around to riding it and it sat in the garage all it's life). Just after the floods flowed through Emerald, this bike was stolen. Now the insurance company wants to know a value for it.. Where can I find this out?? I have been to every auction site and a while ago there were a couple but are no longer… Continue

Ice ice baby...

A couple of weekends ago it was Baby Chillikebab’s first birthday, so we had a party. We baked a stupidly big cake, which Baby Chillikebab wasn’t allowed to have.

We also supplied cold drinks to the guests (well, the adult ones at least), so in the morning I set out to get ice.

It was a very hot weekend, with temperatures well over 3oC. Finding somewhere that…
