It's All About The Ti Build

Posted on February 18, 2013 at 9:18 10 Comments

The journey to build my new bike started 18 months ago after reading “It’s All About The Bike” by Robert Penn. How wonderful it would be to build a bike that you have personally selected each piece individually, researched its attributes and not have some multinational company thinking that these are the components you should have on a said priced bike. No thanks.

For those that don’t know me, I like things that are a little alternate without being too far from left field. The…


Two years on - we've come a long way.

Posted on November 9, 2011 at 8:48 11 Comments

It has been two years since I started cycling as a recreational sport and not just as a means to get milk from the corner shop. I initially took up cycling in an effort to continue on my original goal of weight loss having originally ballooned out to 110kg due to a decrease in physical activity over 5 -6 years.  Two years ago it was hovering around the 100kg mark.  Cycling has managed to get me down to approx 90kg but I still have a bit of work to do.


I started with my old…

Dear Justin

Are you rising to ride tomorrow morning? I see you rode the Screw of Cork on Monday.  It was pity I did not know as I would have joined you on Monday arvo as I was home recovering from my ten days away.

Dear Justin

It was nice to ride with you and the others yesterday.  Thank you for the advice re CFFRS I have added the group to my profile. I rode with Brett until the turn-off to Corkscrew Road.  (I have ridden it a couple of times and do not enjoy the gradient.  It is far too steep for my liking and at 120 plus Ks even more so.  If I had an easier ride up Checkers Hill then I may have done). I may consider riding Friday morning ride but I am not sure whether that will be before or after I return from leave.

Dear Justin

The CFFRS event is no longer appears on the Adelaide Cyclist website.  Was this an event created by Brett?

Thanks for the notification of this Friday's CFFRS but I have to work. I was planning on going to Forest Range though.
