The Review Of The Vilano Tempest 20″

I've been an avid fan of cycling my entire life. Be that as it may, what I even love more than cycling is circumventing the nation with my RV. Hauling around my huge mountain bicycle all over the nation was getting the opportunity to be a pain to I selected to get a Folding bicycle. After much consideration I chose the Vilano Tempest 20″ Folding bicycle.…

Ouch

I like riding in wet weather. It’s fun, like being a kid again. Of course, you do have to take a bit more care. Wet roads can be slippery. Especially when cornering. Especially when cornering over a whole load of white paint and metal manhole covers. Wet metal is very very…

Another Christmas Day FAIL by Sydney cyclists

I'm over this, Sydney Cyclists. Every year I tell you what a great morning it is for cycling on Christmas Day and every year you all ignore me. Why should I tell you again? 

I'll just give you the stats: 73 cyclists in 76 km between 0615 and 0915 on an out-and-back run to scenic West Head. Hardly any car traffic and all of what there was failed to try to kill me.

Flat Tyres and Flat Caps

Flat tyre

I got my bike out of the shed the other day, and the tyre was flat. Flat as a proverbial pancake. This was a great shock, as I never get punctures. People always look at me incredulously when I say that, but it’s true. Punctures are such unusual events that I write about them on this blog every time I get one, and a quick search reveals the last one was in…

NRCA calls for bike rego

PRESS RELEASE February 8, 2008

Following the call for a levy on bicycles by Pat Farmer, Alan Odds, the President of the National Roads and Cyclists Association, today endorsed the call for cyclists to contribute to the cost of maintaining the road network.

"Let's face it. The situation is untenable. Motorists are constantly calling me a tax cheat. I hear 'Get off the road! Pay your taxes!' all too often on my daily commute to my consulting contract in the CBD.

Tax cheat?…

I will never run again. Ever.

It was sports carnival day at daughter #2's preschool yesterday, so I took the morning off work to go along.

I rode down there with daughter #1 on the bike, and we watched all the fun of the running and obstacle races.

Then it was time for the big event - the Mums and Dads race. I took my place in the line, heart beating nervously. The stakes were high. This was for prestige and bragging rights. I wanted my daughter to be able to say 'my dad's faster than your dad' to the other…

Cycling Clubs - Eastern Sydney

I would like peoples advice and feedback.

I am really keen on joining a cycling club in Sydney, however I am concerned that my road bike does not meet the standard expected compared to other members.

What is the standard that is expected? I have a Specialized Roubaix SL4 Sport with 105 group set.

I do not want to ride competitively but looking to push my fitness and be more involved in the sport.

I would appreciate…

A new experience

So, today I found out what it feels like when fingers connect with spokes while doing 50+ km/h. It wasn't a nice feeling. All in all I am very lucky as I only lost some skin - nothing broken.

Anyway, next time I adjust my front derailer I will be a bit more careful.

Barangaroo Headland Park

With great fanfare, the Barangaroo Headland Park was today opened by premier Baird in company with Paul Keating, former PM and prime mover for the restoration of the natural attributes of the area, and Malcolm Turnbull who tweeted that he came by Route 333 bus with his grandson (subtext: Not by helicopter, so not costing taxpayers very much).…

College St Cycleway – RIP

I don’t normally have reason to ride through the eastern part of the CBD, but the other day I did need to, to get out to an exhibition in Moore Park. I sort of followed my nose, and by happy chance found myself on the College Street Cycleway.

I bowled along merrily, enjoying the respite from the city traffic. My otherwise happy mood was somewhat darkened by my…

Camera! Action! Police!

Almost a year to the day since this incident, I today experienced another rather unpleasant situation on the roads. I wasn’t hit, but was somewhat spooked. I was riding up Burns Bay Road this morning – traffic was moderate, although had bunched up a bit around me because of a red traffic light half-way up the hill.…
