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…

A quick phone call and we rescheduled for Wednesday.

Wednesday came and there was even some sunshine.

We rode to Belair via Flinders University and some side streets.

Eventually we arrived…

Don, read your post today about why you are a slow cyclist. I am too due to long term ill health that includes fatigue, so usually cycle by myself. Hope you feel a bit better knowing that you are not the only AC member who cannot keep up with groups on long, fast and/or hilly rides.

Don, was there a chrome bottle holder with the box of goodies, surplus to your requirements? I need to replace 1 of my 3 holders, but the closest I can get is matte aluminium. Expect to see you at the workshop this Saturday.
