I'm looking at setting up a display about cycling, among other things to promote the benefits and encourage new residents in Bowden to ride instead of drive cars. I would be interested in hearing about BUGs, rider training, cycling shops wishing to promote an innovative product or display cycling related material or artwork.
I'm also interested in buying a secondhand cargo bike or displaying innovative bikes for demonstration rides by the public.
I was at the bike workshop yesterday and there was a young lad there who wanted a different seat on his bike.
But he had no money and couldn't/wouldn’t pay
I think it was a bike for refugees bike after harassing mike for what seemed like more than a reasonable time he had a different seat on his bike.
Mike refereed him onto me because it seemed the brakes on the bike needed attention and possibly Mike had other things to do.
On investigation the brakes could work…Continue

Our newly crowned U/23 TT World Champ took us on a tour of Norton Summit, where he still holds the record taken from Jack Bobridge in the 2011/2012 Bowden Elite Team Series event.Continue

The Bike Workshop’s Saturday morning sessions remain busy. There are people looking for bikes –people with bikes for repair – people bringing bikes to donate.
We’ve expanded to 6 work stations in the car park, and set up trolleys, to make it easy to move tools & equipment outside. The year hasn't been too hot so far, but just in case, we have large parasols so people can work in the shade. An added summer bonus - fig trees nearby - very sweet fruit last…Continue
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…
I purchased my first E-Bike a year ago and think they are brilliant for people who need the help of a motor or just lazy.
I would like to know how many members there are who also own and enjoy them.
A ride into town is always a pleasure knowing i don't need to peddle if i don't feel like it.
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. A lot of these are almost half full of bike reviews. This amazed me when I first started flicking through magazines. Just how many different current bike brands are there? (that’s not really…
I just thought I would share a few events with you all. For those of you that don't know I work for Ride a Bike Right as a cycling instructor and we are specialists in cycling safety education for kids. This school holidays we have three programs for school kids whether they are already riding or don't know how to ride yet with out training wheels. Give your kids the gift of being able to ride this Christmas :-)
We can get your kids up and riding and riding safely to make these…
My name is Snappy and I’m an addict
..and you all respond in unison "Hi Snappy".
So what’s with on-line clubs? Newbies to any online forum are so keen to get involved. They want to contribute to every topic (whether they know anything about it or not) and the forum always open in their browser. Every email notification is switched to 'on' so they don’t miss a thing, and everyone who replies to their topic is a new best…Continue

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…Continue

Surviving my first trip on a roadie, and mistakenly climbing my first hill.
Nearly four years and I can still remember the sketchy feeling of clipping into a road bike and pulling out into the street for the first time. I’d been taught how to clip in, and clip out. I’d rolled around the carpark of the LBS a few times. I’d been fitted and kitted, and off I went.
Although I’d ridden bikes as a kid, again on an old…
I grew up in a household where riding a bike was "normal". When we lived in the country, my Dad didn't ride to work, because that would have been silly. With many country railway workers, home and work were, almost literally, only the side gate apart. When Dad was transferred to the Pt Adelaide gang, he would regularly ride from Mansfield Park to the Port for work, even though we owned a car. What stopped him wasn't either of the couple of accidents going to work, but a severed Achilles…Continue
1. Train Moderately
Train within your limits most of the time.
2. Train Consistently
Develop a routine - regular activity brings positive change.
In a previous blog I said I'd run through my current training block being my 'Build 1' phase. All of my base work has already been done as I started my training at Easter. In brief, base training is to build your aerobic base through long, reasonably easy rides. It forms the 'foundation' of your training and of course the foundation of any endurance sport. Joe Friel refers to…Continue
An Event on Face book at "Victor Harbor Ride"
A few weeks back Richard Stevens decided he fancied a ride to Victor Harbor and back in a day and mentioned it to others. There appeared to be a bit of interest from people wishing to join him on his journey so he created a …Continue
First Trailer A visitor 'dropped in when passing', looking for a bike trailer. His son or son-in-law played cricket, the ground was within cycling distance, but he had to get his gear there as well as himself. Cricketers sometimes refer to their large…Continue
As an Accredited Sports Scientist and operator of a sports physiology practice (Adelaide Human Performance), I’ve recently posted several blogs on Adelaide Cyclists about fitness and training. My last post discussed how general training zones based on fixed percentages of maximum…Continue
Welcome to my new blog which I'll use to document my ten month lead up to the UCI World Cycling Tour (UWCT) final to be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2014.
My blog will be a mix of hopefully interesting stuff for you, from my training—both on bike and in the gym—nutrition, stuff about the bike, some fun and other updates along the way. From…Continue
