Today I set out on a ride with my young daughter and we made it to the top of Norton Summit...

This was the first "serious" climb that I had attempt with the trailer in tow. It all went very smothly, so well that Ayli slept the whole way up the hill - it required a little more…

Hi Don

Good to meet you today and thanks for the offer of a venue for a cycling europe slide show. I am pretty easy about a date, I guess (like you suggested) its better to try and slot in around existing bookings. I'll send Angus a message and see what he was thinking of and get back to you

I'd recognise those headlights anywhere... I had a Datto 1600 as the first car I bought. Awesome little thing. I swapped it for a motorbike and the car was then written off by its new owner soon after. Pity.

At least yours is a nice blue. Mine was like a chocolate brown that the previous owner had painted with a brush. At least that meant I wasn't too fussed about scratching the paint and not too precious about it.

I had a blast in that car. :-D

Welcome aboard! Thanks for joining us. We're a pretty mixed bunch of bike nuts so I hope you get something out of the community. You can post to the main forum, maintain a blog, post pics and videos, join a niche group or start your own for your group/ club or interest.

Please tell your cycling mates.. and thanks for the reminder about the Classic Adelaide. I think the beach run will be busy next weekend!
