Hey SSS,
Your pretty local to me, fancy hooking up for a ride? Sundays only, due to work :(

Nice 115km ride on quiet country roads this morning. 1090m climbed and average of 26.1km/h. It was 12C and cold on the way out and 30C on the way home - odd.

Nice one DaveOZ. Those photos make me want to go riding.
Looks like a very nice place to clock up a few km's....

I'm on the board for the year! Still on holiday so only 16 km to get a coffee, but I did manage to grab a KOM on the way :). Still, I will need to build up fitness again after a couple of lazy weeks.

That shot of the Tallong Bridge should get Mr Black up here again.

Nice ride Dave. I haven't been on the bike all year. Had an early ride planned this morning, but after only 4 hours sleep, thank you neighbours, I bailed. Instead I spent the day with the bride and a mate's family at Bosom Beach swimming and eating. Best part of 3 hours in the water and I am stuffed.

My next ride up your way will probably be Grant's Tallowa Dam ride on the 12th Graham. Should be some roads in that one that you ride regularly.

Yes Tallowa Dam - ride of the damned - on the 12th, PM me if you're interested. Then the Tallong Bridge ride is scheduled in a couple of months too so plenty of Highlands scenic beauty to enjoy.

Today was my first day off the bike since the 23rd December and I've been restless and fidgety all day. Good thing I'm going out tomorrow morning to smash myself against the Gun Club hill repeatedly so I can start feeling normal again :) .

I think that is a sign of addiction, when you're dreading the thought of missing out on something for 3 days :)

I'll have a go again. I only managed 3,000km last year because I fell off the wagon a bit through winter. I've been riding a fair bit the past 3 months though, so will try to keep it going.

It really sucks!

I have the kit in wash so I can have another go tonight assuming I receive my 5 pack of inner tubes in the mail.

I didn't have any left hence why I had none packed it seems!

Looks like the Bike Journal signature is no longer working. I'll have to start a Strava account I suppose.

My KMs will only really start on 21 Jan when I go back to work so you can all get a lead on me and I'll see who I can reel in.

I'm in. I have registered on Strava and will start shwoing my good start tothe year as soon as I work out how to manually log my rides.

Any tips on how I manually load a ride? The target distance, account name and my email address all went through fine. But all I have from it is a Settings tab and Home tab with no boxes for entering data afais.

Strava's online advice is "Add an activity manually : If you want to record an activity on Strava without a GPS device, you can create a manual upload. Simply input all the information manually, like distance, time, activity type, etc" but I can't find a way to do that. ( https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/2095 ... va-website )

Colin there should be an Upload Activity at the top right. Adding it manually is one of the options when you click on it.

Not seeing it. Just a welcome message there and a link to logout.

I am in the Home tab. I am talking only of desktop web-client, not a smartphone app.

I just made a Strava account and managed to manually upload a 1km ride, it can be done, you follow the link on the top right from memory and then you get the option of loading it manually.

I might try the app for my android phone and see if it agrees with the speedo on my bike, if not, it will be manual uploads for me. I will continue to use Bike Journal too but not Endomondo, 3 ways of logging rides is too many.

I'd just stick to Strava. It's easier.

Colin - sounds like you are in the Cycling Target Thingy account where you can grab your signature block? http://statmonkey.is-a-geek.net/cycling/

You need to log in to Strava itself to add your rides.

From a later post where you mention there is only a welcome message and log out button in top right hand corner, it definitely sounds like it's just the target thingy site -see screen shot below showing Home and Settings tabs that you describe.

Image

Have you created a Strava account as well? If not, you will need to do that first at http://www.strava.com . Then you can follow the earlier instructions to select the 'Upload Activity' button in top right hand corner. What you should see up the top once you login to Strava can be seen in the screen shot below.

Image

Hope that helps.
