Trouble in the pants department

I certainly do. It's all well and good for people to bang on about the joys of sit-up cycling and riding wearing normal clothes, but the fact is that doing so is destroying my already limited supply of pants I can wear in public without my balls hanging out.…

Goulburn Cycle Grand Prix

My apologies to people who have already read a similar post on a couple of other forums I contribute to but this ride was good so I thought I would mention it here. On Sunday morning I went to Goulburn for the cycle grand prix, which was held as part of NSW bike week. On offer were a choice of the 85, 50 and a community fun challenge around a park. I got to the park which was the start point for the Cycle Grand Prix and signed on and got a number and a bag with some…

Helmet laws - the debate goes on...

Very good helmet article in the Fairfax press today:

I'm happy to wear my hard hat in Australia, but in Europe I like the wind in my hair.…

The long road to Brisvegas 6

It's been a while now and to be honest progress has stalled a bit on the training. A new job, a new love and house hunting has left not much free time for the training schedule..
Weight wise I've sat at about 80kg now for some time so no great additional wins but no losses either. The next month is going to have to be pretty big or this little chicken is going to hurt for all to hear.

The training schedule kicks back off again this Sunday which will give me…

New bike racks at work

Today an email came around at work informing us that new bike racks had been installed in the basement car park, and encouraging us to use them (and more generally encouraging riding to work).

This is all very commendable; they have also recently cleaned and repainted the shower room (which previously had mildew on the walls and was filthy). There's still only one shower (well, one male, one female) for the whole building, but hey. You can have some nice chats whilst queuing… Continue

Last Sunday

We finally got round to trying out the new bike lanes last Sunday, and they were great!

Saturday night, we were returning from a 4y.o.'s birthday party, and got to check out the southern end of Bourke St by car. IMO, the main reason for the John Mahoney and David Hannan lawsuit is the speed humps restricting the car/truck traffic, not the fact that there's a green stripe down the side.

So on Sunday, we decided to go for a spur of the moment ride from the… Continue

B-double or "Hexacycle"

Anything is Possible!

This is my family plus a couple of borrowed kids to makeup the numbers on our "Hexacycle" (6 wheels). My kids started off in the baby seats on the tandem bike. Then we got the Pashley Cycles U-Plus2 so they moved to that as they got older. The old dog did learn a new trick and happily goes into the trailer when he's tired or on busy roads. (I should have got a…

MacBUG still around

Macarthur Bicycle User Group is still here. We left Bicycle NSW and went our own way but receive insurance through Pedal Power. A much smaller group these days, we bushwalk as well using our MTB for carrying camera gear into the Woronora Plateau in the fight against the destruction of Sydney's water supply. Ben Nash is our rides coordinator and vice president whilst I handle the bushwalk organisation with rides and walks overlapping at times. Some days we may ride MTB's to a location, leave… Continue

Radish gas!

I had occasion to add something else to the list of things I've carried on the Radish today. I needed a new gas bottle for the BBQ (and if you were wondering why I am barbecuing in the rain, it's because our oven has broken, and we've got a chicken that needs roasting), so rather than jumping in the car I took the Radish.

With the tie-down straps I got to transport the folder on the…

The price you pay for riding a bike

Today I cycled down Crown St instead of my usual route on Bourke St. I wanted to avoid the mess created by the construction work for the cycleway, and I figured it would be an opportunity to see why so many cyclists prefer Crown to Bourke. I'd never had good experiences on Crown - I always seem to attract road ragers there, and it happened again today.

It started when a middle-aged guy in a car… Continue
