Steve,

 

I might take you up on your very kind offer to try and set my new clipless shoes up properly.  Are you around on the weekend?  I am happy to ride to your place, of course. Or, if you prefer, you can come to mine in Newmarket.  Please let me know!

Thanks, Super Steve :)  Had a quick ride this morning - last for a week unless I can work a miracle!  It was dark-ish when I left and my new sunglasses performed nicely as it got lighter.  Love having good gear!

G'day Steve, long time no see.  The flying's taken a dive so to speak?

We must catch up....

Hi Steve!

 

Just wanted to say thanks again for showing me the way this morning!

 

I've had another look at the map and it's all seeming a bit more familiar now.

 

Let me know what you find out about the lights.

 

Nice to meet you as well :) :) see you later in the week.

Good onya, Big Steve. The CBDBUG is working hard on the difficulties of commuters from the inner north. If you're inner inner you might be one of the few lucky ones inside the chaos of the airport link construction etc. If you aren't on the BUG email list yet, send one off to convenors@CBDBUG.org.au
