Might be a long shot, but I'll ask anyway- can anyone suggest any CBD (or close to) companies that have a positive attitude and encourage staff to commute by bike? Also have good bike lock up facilities, showers etc.Thanks in advanceKristianContinue
Jens Voigt goes out with a bang tonight as he takes on the hour record set by Ondrej Sosenka in 2005. He has to ride faster than 49.700km to do it.Personally, I'm not so sure he'll get there but but it does pave the way for others like Cancellara to…Continue
A few months ago I moved to Adelaide from Sydney and have been enjoying this fine city. On the whole Adelaide motorists are less aggro that Sydney drivers, which is a nice change. On the whole I some see safer cycling (e.g less red light running),…Continue
It's been three years or so since the last time I changed any major design elements of this website. I resist all the time to fiddle and tweak, today I finally get to roll out a design that has actually been a long time in the making (in a…Continue
Almost year in to my new found cycling obsession and with reasonable fitness, I'm psyched to start commuting from Crafers to Norwood (Magill rd). I'm very familiar with the section between Crafers and the Tollgate, but nervous about peak hour…Continue

Well, the 11th of August slipped by without me noticing, that is the day in 2011 that I rode a bike for the first time as an adult. Since then I have cycled, on average, just short of 1,000 km's each month to clock up 35,385 km's to date.
My blog posts, this year, have dropped of a lot as I lost some enthusiasm for posting when I lost my earlier posts due to hardware failure and lack of foresight, read insufficient backup! Besides that, I feel I have little to offer new riders anymore as it was all about the journey of a new rider. I am now in inbetweenland, not a new rider but not a seasoned rider either!
So, what do I have to blog about that is of interest to others, not much that I can think of really!
Several things have happened in my third year. Overall, I have ridden far less, I have ridden my longest ride, I have slept much more and have ridden far more with my dear wife, Lynn, who took my first bike from me 2 years ago and last but not least I have…Continue
Her transformation of New York from gridlock to a walkable and cycle-able city is legendary. Velo-City guest speaker Jannette Sadik-Kahn was New York City’s Commissioner of Transportation and oversaw its dramatic transformation to a cycling and pedestrian mecca, and her presentation impressed Bicycle Institute's Gus Kingston.
So, last week I ended up in Hawaii.
I had known I would be there a few months prior so a few repeats of Norton Summit and Greenhill Road had been included into my routine. I had also tried to extend my regular rides slightly as I knew I'd be in the saddle (an unfamiliar one at that) for an extended time.
I had done my research on where Mt Haleakala was, where "the" ride starts from, where to stay, where to borrow a bike. Firstly, I organised to book the bike from Maui Cyclery - http://www.gocyclingmaui.com/, accommodation was to be at The Paia Inn - http://paiainn.com/. The rental shop and accommodation were both within 100metres of the start of the climb. Nice!
After flying to Honolulu and then onto Maui, we checked into our room. Very nice, comfortable and recommended with direct beach access which was utilized straight away. After a swim and a lie…Continue
Adelaide's Stephen Cunningham crossed the line first in the 2013 3 Peaks Challenge and returned in last month to do it again. The former European based pro, now training coach and European tour guide, who divides his time between the Adelaide Hills and France, wrote this exclusive post about what it takes to successfully ride arguably one of the toughest sportifs in the world and, despite his critics, do it back to back.
Well it's been a few weeks since participating in the …Continue
