Looking for some friends Sunday morning, it'll be my only chance for a decent ride.

In Adelaide with the kids and staying at the olds just south of Brighton. I'll have my ute so quite happy to travel for a ride.

just popping in to check up on y'all - I haven't had much time to trawl the forums but there is some great work going on in here! :) Not sure where I am going tomorrow but will probably be aiming at a metric tonne. Haven't done an old-school century yet but would like to knock one out by the end of the year. :D Pref before it starts getting so hot that my water bottle gives me third degree burns. Ah Perth weather ;D

Yeah its awesome. The owner must be a fabricator or has deep pockets, theres a bit of work in that thing.

My old man would have taken me to look at something like that as a kid. He wouldn't say anything, just be driving somewhere and he would pull up and make it a surprise.

Which one did you like the best?

No rides for me this weekend. BB is rooted. Not a happy camper. Off to the LBS tomorrow. Will get the bike sorted for the big ride next week.

That's not good Norbs. What's wrong with it? Hope you can get it fixed and ready for the big ride.

I had a busy weekend but slipped out for 50km yesterday. It was perfect riding weather up here and I really enjoyed it.

There is another Norbticle on page 82. You have to wade past all the Lord Wiggo stuff.

Great work Todd.

Haven't been here for for a while- and the red arrow shows why.
But can you guess where this is? Shane won't know because it is completely flat. All the Felts were on the road whizzing by but the bike tracks and beach were good enough for this Giant.

Left Bowral when the winds were stronger than 70km/hr but have come back from Port Douglas to perfect cycling weather. Now to catch that red arrow....

Hey Graham, we are off to Port Douglas on Friday. I wanted to take my bike for some early morning rides but decided not too. Might hire one of those things - must take the Garmin. 8)
