My Giant TCR for when I'm doing the roadie thing.

Product Mini Review - Schwalbe One Tyre

Posted on February 26, 2014 at 10:51pm 3 Comments

I never thought I'd feel hatred for a tyre. But the Schwalbe One brought out this out in me.

 

I've used a lot of tyres and they all have their pros and cons.

I didn't much like the tyres that came with a set of Mavic Aksiums I bought a few years ago. They got a lot of punctures and with…

This roadie goes bush!

Posted on May 12, 2013 at 2:40pm 8 Comments

So while I ride different bikes for different reasons, when it comes to the type of riding I enjoy the most, I'm unashamedly a roadie.

 

I've had lots of friends over the years who were mad mountain bike riders and while I knew they enjoyed it I never felt compelled to do it. 

 

Why would I want to drive to a bike ride ? I'd ask.

 

I've managed to bring a lot of them to the road but it's never been the other way around. 

 

Until…

Bowl-o-Cross

Posted on May 7, 2013 at 9:30pm 5 Comments

This past Sunday was Bowl-o-Cross.
 
For those who don't know, Bowl-o-Cross was a cyclocross event put on by Gavin Bannerman (of Pushies Galore fame), Brad Norman and others. What differed Bowl-o-Cross from most other cross events is that it was held, as the name suggests, at a lawn bowls…

DEE ENN EFF

I hate pulling out of races, it can seem like such a good option during the race some days but the second I roll off the track and on to the grass I regret it.

Yesterday was one of those days, making it two DNFs in a row. It’s better than a DNS I guess but still frustrating.

The excuse was rain. The weather was a little ominous when we started but the rain set in a few laps into the race. I really don’t mind riding in the rain. Don’t really like…

Hi Damian,

No trips planned for Qld so currently concentrating on my local Adelaide Cyclists. You are the administrator for Brisbane Cyclist, which is not immune from awful trolling, e.g. "Hello baby". Will provide more detail if you can block this trolling, which Adelaide Cyclists did.

Cheers, Heather
