Hi Guys,I got one of these earlier in the year for some of our wildlife trips overseas.What settings are useful for using it as a road bike recording camera? Specifically want it as a safety device.…Continue
Hi Guys,I am looking for a helmet mounted light with a remote switch thats not an absolute monster cost. Purpose is for:1. Descending in the dark.2. Surveying sides on very, very country roads for…Continue
"Yes, heard about Simon. Pretty sad state for him, he collided with Nick Fisk as well who got up without major issues and completed the ride. It absolutely bucketed down the previous day - I got soaked going into the bike check as did most of the…"
"Bad news on Hugh, didnt realise he was the rider who had the crash early on. Thought it was a rider from another state, what bad luck! Dr J unfortunately did not feel good on day 2 and pulled out, I think on the way back from Brest. I saw him during…"
"Congradulations Chris, Dil and I were watching you as well! We were getting very worried for you and Howard as well, as he lagged a lot and we knew he must be having issues as well. Sounds a miracle finish given the issues you faced. Very well done…"
"Also wanted to thank everyones support, information, encouragement and goodwill on here. Has helped a lot in my planning, coordinating and training as well as knowing I'm never really alone out there. "
"I thought a lot more were in front! I just realise I hadnt posted on here, which is terrible. I had an amazing time, was feeling good and rode with different crowds through the ride, though Day 1 I was mostly with Ian and Katherine as we joined and…"
"Wow, truly amazing of them both. I just realised I could use the aus tracking app to see if i can find some wheels to suck during the ride maybe. Hmm.
Is Claus the oldest, I heard there's an 81 year old? Would be great to take a photo…"
This is my tracking in case you want to see what I have been doing. Dil says when I am on a ride it shows how many kmph i have been doing, how long i took to do that last 10min stretch and stuff. Might be interesting to you, since your the…"
"Thanks for the tips Michael, Howard introduced me to a little headlamp thingy, like we use for our travels which I will incorporate as a little helmet light.
I must say I am excited now, all the tough training is done and now its a matter of…"
"Awesome Bill, thanks, I will set it up on the Garmin and check it out. Yes I will follow signs, but having a route is nice also to keep track of how much to go next checkpoint or end of day etc.
I am not planning on riding with anyone…"
"Thanks so much Bill, I downloaded a couple of maps. One for NSW for testing and one for PBP. So basically I rename it as the same name as the current map file isnt it?
Thanks for so much for going over the details via messenger too :)"
"Bill, I know you posted some info about an alternative site to download a map for the 520. I cant find it.
I want to get a map of france for the PBP route - though really the tracking might be enough via breadcrumb trail i suppose. But why…"
"An audacious plan Rob, something similar I considered way back but I think I will do a 100 the next day instead.
I dont think I will be chasing the fast climbers all day again, I feel I need a slightly more relaxed big rides this week and next to…"
"Big effort Chris, the conditions were far from ideal. But well done for trying and I admire your audacious attitude. Glad you finished safely, all that rain would have made that ride dangerous, especially in the night. Nice to have a chat to you…"
