Bicycles and trams - how good's that!

What a beauty this video. Watch the boy not falling into the cable gap with his rear wheel!- the whole thing looks unreal.

I am a cyclist, but at present I am full time promoting 21st century road transport. Waverail will re-create a form of roads, filled with human live, activity and interaction.

Cheers and… Continue

Totally offtopic musings on customer service and reputation

Some recent events have led me to consider issues around reputation, and more specifically online reputation.

I believe most successful proprieters of service based industries realise that some people do have bad experiences, for whatever reason, and it's how we deal with this that shapes our reputation.

I believe that every negative can be viewed as an opportunity.

I believe that most disatisfied customers can be turned into a loyal advocate with… Continue

Bikes on Dykes - a 5 day ride round Holland's green heart

Holland could be the best bike touring country in the world - flat, safe, beautiful, historical...but the weather can be a challenge! See my blog on it:

A little bit lame

hmm...I am no prude but there is something I just find annoying about this Sydney Bike Film Festival advert for their bike giveaway, which was featured in MC Cyclery's enewsletter.


I have a feeling that 'babes on bikes' is quite a big theme for this year's festival.

Colour clash - cycling Denmark's Bornholm Island

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.

Here's the link to my blog post:… Continue

Bike Restoration

Hello there,

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?

Thanks for any advice on… Continue

My take on the Gong Ride (with very average photos)

The Gong Ride is always a great event. I took the camera this time, but I wobbled the bike cam for a while, then just wanted to get to the finish line not too far behind my son!

Super bike tour in Connemara, Ireland

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:

Commuting In Sydney

This is my 3rd week in Sydney. Due to unforseen surcumstances, I find myself living in North-west of Sydney rather than the South. I find the Hills a good place to live with good cycling infrastructure....... mostly (Better than most other parts of Sydney I have seen) and some nice country roads to pootle 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:

1. how to commute to work via… Continue

Left Town

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
