My suburban cycling commutes into the unknown...

It’s 0500 and my alarm just woke me. It’s raining outside and I can hear a rooster croaking nearby. I start thinking to myself that it was just over a week ago that I would wake up at 0620 usually when commuting by car. I would drive in my car, banana in one hand, iphone in the other using Shazam to advise me of the songs names on the radio so I can download later off Limewire. It’s…

The long road to Brisvegas 4

Well after much work and trying like mad to not go out and eat to my heart's content with friends at every opportunity I've managed to lose 5kgs in 3 weeks and getting the cycling miles up a lot with the help of Audax :)
Two weeks ago I did a 150km ride from Hornsby out through Kurrajong, Sackville, Pitt Town and back over 6hrs. Tomorrow I'm doing a similar route hopefully in a slightly better…

Today my 1st day commuting to work by bike, train & ferry...

I work a 3 different sites, North Head, Georges Heights and Cockatoo Island.

For years I have been driving my fuel guzzling 3.8 litre Holden Commodore wagon from lidcombe to the above sites, and receiving 'account suspended' notices from the Roam e-tag company advising me that if I don't top up my account my e-tag account will be cancelled (did you know that those little notices, if you link them to you e-tag account it sometimes takes them up to 2 months to debit any…

Captain Dashboard would be proud

Earlier this year, I saw a blog post here about having an accessory bar, and I thought it was a good idea. Having about as many accessories as Captain Dashboard, I could do with some extra space.

That said, I did consider that having extra capacity might not be a good idea, as I would probably then be tempted to add even more accessories.… Continue

European Trip - The Infrastructure

My girlfriend and I recently returned from a European cycling holiday through Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Switzerland. Of course, I was very interested in the cycling infrastructure and cycling culture (in Denmark, Germany and Holland in particular) and made sure to take some photos and videos for reference.

Here are some of my favourites...

Spinning class

Went with my kid to swimming lessons on Saturday. It was raining, and there was only one bike in the racks. It wasn't mine. I don't have wet weater gear for the little one.

As I walked in, I noticed there was a group on the stationary bikes. I counted 12 people roughly. So it's spinning 12, and normal biking scored 1. Is it just me, or does it seem like a bad idea to drive, then pay someone so you can sit on a stationary bike? I know I'm preaching to the converted, and my missus… Continue

Who was the cyclist doing 60 down Parramatta Road today?

I was driving through Burwood on Parramatta Road today when I came level with a cyclist on a red and blue Orbea flat barred road bike, maybe a 29er. It was an exotic looking machine with what looked like front suspension. The rider was a slight dark complexioned fellow, possibly of Indian or Sri Lankan extraction. Anyway, he was doing close to 60 when I drew level, and sitting on about 50 on a fairly flat section of road, slowing down briefly on the rises. He kept up with me for a couple of km… Continue

The long road to Brisvegas 3

Well it's a week down and on Friday despite the bad weather keeping me on my trainer rather than the hills I managed to lose 1.5kg and in general I'm feeling a lot better on the bike.

The diet is going really well, I'm very impressed with the quality of the food from the Diet Factory though I'm keeping an eye on my weight loss each day to make sure I don't lose too much, sitting on about 0.2kg per day at the moment. As I was thinking on the way back… Continue

Following Le Tour from Rotterdam today.

In Rotterdam for Le Tour today. Holland hasn't been officially part of France since 1815, but what the hell - it will be fun!
