Ah, very nice, I knew there had to be a better name than criss cross fade. Cheers!

Not for me. My advantage is that I am easily spotted and my name and forum-handle are fairly well known.

My DIS-advantage is that if you do shout out "good morning Colin", I have no idea if I should feel bad about not recognising you. :( Apologies to many.

I'm on a white giant, what do you ride?

But he did give me a compliment after a particularly hard ride, so if you're on here, thanks!).



Aj, was that you i saw this morning??

about 6.30, at the mirrabooka/reid hwy lights? White defy with red/black jacket? we said gday and you asked if i had far to go? I was on the black roadie SS, rapha kit/PI arm warmers/White shoes/brown crumpler messeneger bag. We then parted ways at when i went down flinders

If so, sorry i couldnt have chat, timing of the lights and traffic meant riding two abreast wouldnt be the best of ideas i think!

Yep that was me! Where do you join mirabooka ave in the mornings? I jump on from Hepburn.

I saw someone crossing from the west side of mirabooka to the east side up near Hepburn, but I thought it was someone on a flat bar bike, but having said that it was dark.

I'm secretly hoping it was no one here...my kit didn't match my bike today!! :oops:

Gave you a wave and "Good morning Colin!" this morning as I headed south near the old Pagoda in South Perth. We have met and chatted about 18 months ago on the train heading to Mandurah.

So in Bicton exiting Angove Lane coming into Jerrat drive I spot a fellow member wearing a BNA jersey. Yell out BNA and he continues on his merry way. I was kitted out in my Audax LS jersey with dynamo light running.

Iv been seeing the same couple of cyclists from time to time, on my way in from Dianella.

An older gent with an Avanti Roadie. Wears a fluro yellow jacket and some Blue DHB knicks (either longs or with warmers on underneath). Comes up Walter Rd & North St.

Also see a younger guy - Mid to late 20's I guess. Rides a nice Colnago and was wearing a 'Brooklyn' cycling cap under his helmet. Not a bad rider... certainly moves along quick enough.

Anyone from here?
