I tried, but MHL wins..

I give up, they win....I had a letter for the majority of 2013, it was so nice to be able to ride.  Yea, i got pulled over so much i threatened an injunction against them. I was never pulled again till after December when my letter expired.  It wasn't fun anymore. Ticket time...      I tried for 3 years in vain to get another letter,  but the contact i had ignored me.   Every single doctor i went to locally told me to wear the damn thing.   so after 3 long years of trying, I finally gave up and…See More

MS Moonlight Walk at Davies Park

November 1, 2019 from 4:30pm to 9pm
Thousands of people will join the fight against MS and help celebrate 21 years of the MS Moonlight Walk. Choose between a leisurely and safe 3km, 5km or 10km – with both the 3km and 5km courses wheelchair accessible.  Walkers on all courses will be supported by course marshals, volunteers and refreshment stations. Each walker receives their very own lantern to illuminate our belief that no one should face MS alone.  It’s a spectacular sight to witness the sea of lanterns as the 10km walkers…See More

New convert to folding bikes

Posted by Dunsobarky on August 25, 2017 at 7:42pm 4 Comments

Moved into a new but smaller apartment with no garage space. No place for the big bikes so sold them, including my pride and joy, the ebike and bought a folder. It's a Giant Expressway 1 selected after much deliberation and assessments. Would love a Brompton but couldn't justify the cost differential. It's great fun on a folder, loving my daily commute.

Took a few k's to get used to the ride but now its second nature and such great fun. It's not fast but it zips along nicely. There's…

Commuter Advice = Redcliffe to the Valley

Posted by Angel Maher on February 24, 2017 at 4:57pm 3 Comments

Hi All!!

I'm moving to Redcliffe soon and would like to explore the notion of riding to the Valley from Redcliffe 

I commute only to work - not a road rider on weekend etc

Is anyone able to advise how long it might take and if it's safe to ride along the wetlands etc early in the mornings or when it gets dark in the winter...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
