Riding in Olympic Park

I got out for a lunchtime ride today and chose Olympic Park as my destination. I like riding out there, it has a little bit of something for everyone. If you want to have a nice easy ride, especially with kids, there is a great network of paths, and they do bike hire and supply maps. Things get a little crowded on weekends and you see a few wobbly riders, but if you go through the week the place is…

Here comes train!

A great thing about riding a bike around inner city areas is the bike gives me a great way to get close to the action, much easier than having to find a place to park a car and walk.

Playing with Ning

So I've had an idea to build a Sydney centric cycling site (how's that for an alliteration) for a while. Phil was playing with Ning a while back, and I had a quick look and didn't think much about it at the time. The other day I was riding and it popped back into my head, and tonight it did that again and I thought I'd have a look at the possibility of building what I wanted.
