How Did I Get Here? Chapter 5

Chapter 5

Always one more challenge.

A have a new challenge looming on my horizon. Next month I’ll spend five days hanging with some friends in Bright and riding the majestic Victorian Alps. It was my contemplating this coming trip that led me to wonder “how did I get here?”

I know lots of you regularly ride the “3Peaks” or the “Alpine Classic” and that fills me with awe. I’ve never been tempted to ride one, but I'm not sure if…

Chapter 4.

It’s not about the bike. (OK, maybe it is a bit)

Every good hobby needs good magazines and cycling is well catered. There are plenty of niche publications to suit roadies, mountain bikers, BMXers, hipsters and followers of the pro teams.

 Chapter 2.

In which a Rookie meets Checker Hill

In those first months, maybe mid 2010, I snooped around on line for information about cycling. I’d always had good experiences hooking up with photographers online to share ideas and knowledge so maybe bike riders did that sort of thing too? There were a few sites I tried. It was all a bit confusing. There was even a locally based one called “Adelaide Cyclists”. It didn’t look very active, but I…
