So it's finally coming to fruition and I'd like to invite all you lug sniffers to the opening party of my bicycle workshop.
Everyone is welcome :wink:

St. Leonards is meant to be the heart of the North Sydney tech corridor with big companies like EMC and Cisco set up there. Now the bloody hipsters are moving in! At least there will be more places to get my soy milk lattes.
Is this a permanent work space, Spirito? If so, I'll have to drop by next time I'm summoned to head office in St Leonards.

There's a tech end to St Leonards? It must be the OTHER end. I'll give it a shot at coming, otherwise will say hi if I see you setting up next week.

Sadly previous engagements have ensured I will be far, far away from St Leonards that weekend. Good luck in your new venture, I'll be sure to drop by next tine I am in the big smoke.

Travel Well

My SWMBO is working this Saturday, so I'll try and cruise past. Sounds really interesting. Unlike Typhoon Ken, shall be able to talk freely. :P
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Thanks for posting the pics and the kind words Ken :) Only just realised we briefly met early on that day !!



Many thanks to all those that helped, all those that came to the party and also all those who offered kind words of support & encouragement. After 30 days working on the new space I finally opened last Saturday. What a day !!! Still pinching myself and grinning a wide smile. Now the fun begins !!!
