I bought some gloves from Pedal Mafia on friday and used on Saturday and didnt feel the cold at all. They are a knitted style with bits of metal thread in the tips for touch screens. A little slippery though.

Anything specific you can recommend?


Had to source my Roeckl ones from Europe, though I do remember seeing some differing offerings through a couple of Australian outdoor clothing sites.

Well, Bunbury to be precise

... but how good was the weekend! I found myself with a day to kill in Funbury whilst BF was attending to work responsibilities, poor fella ... Could not transport my own bike down, so rented a big heavy comfy clunker through the Visitor Centre on a whim and spent the afternoon tooling around aimlessly. As a commuter I've realised lately I've kind of lost that knack for purposeless wandering, gosh it was nice ...

Pretty nice weather out today. Rode around Whiteman Park again. If there's a track somewhere I'm heading down it! Kept an eye out for snakes, but didn't see any today.

Came back into Bellevue and noodled along the tracks following the water courses to Guildford.

Heading south tomorrow.
Edit: Sun. down to Mandurah again then back along the railway/reserves. Rode along some newer tracks I hadn't been down closer to Cockburn. Great to have the fairly strong southerly when turned around.

I will say, having a super stiff sole on the new shoes is great. Feel fresher at the end, though I do tend to overdo it a bit when I come across a hardcore roadie and can't help myself riding along with them for a stretch.
