2015 Ride 4 Pain Adelaide cycle

Posted by Ride for Pain on September 4, 2015 at 14:30 0 Comments

Hi Adelaide Cyclists,

Looking for a cycle challenge that is different to all the others? Want to test your climbing ability on some of Adelaide’s most beautiful yet toughest climbs? Then the Ride 4 Pain Adelaide cycle challenge on 15 November 2015 is one cycling event you don’t want to miss.

A Pain Adelaide initiative, the course is purposely designed to challenge riders’ limits and thresholds in order to get an insight into what it’s like to deal with chronic pain and what it takes to recover. 

Don’t worry, there are three Ride 4 Pain courses (2, 4 or 6 hours) to cater for the serious climbers amongst you and those that maybe not as serious but still want a challenge.

As a bit of an insight into the initiative, Pain Adelaide is a comprised of a collection of researchers and clinicians who are dedicated to tackling this health issue. Being the most…

First Fixie Build

Posted by mitch jones on August 14, 2015 at 23:24 3 Comments

For better or for worse, here's my first contribution to the fixie world.

It started out as a Standish frame & forks I got from a local scrap dealer, which I made into a single speed with a coaster brake hub & racer bars. I then decided I wanted to build a fixie, so I changed the rear wheel for one which I'd added a track cog, made a set of bullhorns, & added a front brake & some toe clips. I also had to re-dish the rear wheel (something I'd never tried before....), to get the rim central between the chain & seat stays. I'd never ridden a fixie before so it was quite different not having a freewheel, & having to peddle around corners, but it was good fun! I'm looking forward to some longer rides on this one!

Buying ti - a journey of discovery

Posted by Simon Lownsborough on July 29, 2013 at 20:43 13 Comments

Part 1

I have been very fortunate to come into some money. Most is for my family, but I decided I'd get something with meaning for myself. I considered my options for about 10 seconds. Yep, it had to be a bike. This was an opportunity to get something that would have lasting value, and a different ride experience. I realised I wanted something that I could grow with as a cyclist, and grow old(er) together with, if that makes sense. It needed to be a top bike, I didn't want to compromise on performance. And it had to be special. I set myself a realistic budget, and began looking.

The first thing I did was write down what I thought I wanted:

Something individual, with a sense of long term ownership. Something not 'out of fashion' in 2 years time, yet still competitive. Something light, and fast and comfortable, something ‘alive’, that gives back to the rider. A special ride quality. Great in the hills,…

Riding in the Picos de Europa - Part 1

Posted by Dahondude on May 18, 2013 at 7:39 3 Comments

We had a four day long weekend in mid May thanks to a festival on the Thursday which created an unofficial holiday on the Friday. The Pyrenees are a long 8-9 hrs drive away - too far for only four days. However there is a relatively little known set of mountains called the Picos de Europa (literally Peaks of Europe) about half way between Santiago and the Pyrenees. I’d heard wonderful things about it from a number of cycling and walking friends so we decided to head over there. Luckily for me our leased car is a station wagon so I could squeeze the old Btwin Triban 3 in the back on top of all our luggage. We drove over on a typically Galician day – low cloud and pouring rain so didn’t get to really see that much of the mountains until we were pretty much on top of them. The bits we did see were enough to excite a hill-climb loving cyclist! Deep, green valleys with rocky peaks above and stupidly steep looking gradients. We spent the weekend at a quirky hotel in the small town of Las…
