In praise of BIke SA last Grand Slam

Several times I've taken part in the Around the bay in Melbourne.210kms, ride around Port Phillip bay.Nice ride, but, I put  a lot of money on the table (ride, get there, get back, accommodation) and if the day turns out to be crap, well, your money is blown. And takes a day to get there, day to get back, so wipes out as a minimum three days.And to be really honest, there is a lot of boring road riding through Melbourne suburbs.At the start of this year the penny dropped. The 100/200 Grand slam…See More

2020 Tour down under People's ride

I've been looking at the TDU route for the Friday and have to say I'm underwhelmed.I thought the TDU were going to run the event on a Saturday again because, well, what a great route.Nope, not going to happen.Which is sad, because, I have to work on the Friday. Many people have to work on the Friday. Its the Friday before school goes back.So, I think I'm going to do the Saturday route instead on the Saturday, not because I'm a cheapskate. Hopefully my friends will join me.Now to convince them :)See More
