I know - if you've only got a short holiday in Europe you probably wouldn't have Denmark on your 'must do' list. But if you have more time - this cycle tour is well worth doing. As easy or hard as you want to make it, super safe, and plenty to see along the way. The Danes are almost as cycle mad as the Dutch, and the cycling infrastructure around the country and in towns is brilliant.
I was wondering if anybody had information on Road bike restoration courses/classes. I have a retro, Malvern Star racer I bought for $120 off ebay and the chain completely stuffed up. The brakes are a bit "how's your father" as well. And the gears.. well don't get me started. I want to restore it, but am completely ignorant of how to do it. Is it worth it? Anyway to restore an old bike on a budget and make it worthwhile?
This is a fabulous supported or independent bike tour, if you can afford it. Not cheap, but great countryside, quiet roads, brilliant accommodation and craic in the pubs every night. Read more of what I wrote about it on:

The drivers also seem to be more tolerent in that area.
Two of the major points that were considered when looking for a place to live were:

I was on a bike a had just set up and it was a no brakes fixie. I was riding along and I was doing less than 20 km/hour. I was riding on the white line as I was riding a little bit faster than some beginners and I noticed up ahead a guy on either a Linskey… Continue
So it has happened - Friday just passed was my last day at work, I am now living in Yass (55kms n/w of Canberra). Cool climate wines down the road, not a bicycle user group in site and a very sub average bike plan doc done by council 5plus years ago.
So I will still be involved in BikeSydney for the next few months - not sure when I will be in Sydney next. Contact details are
