Hi Jeremy

Julie Collett (a friend of mine) just sent me this email:

Hi guys,

I am looking for four lovely lads to sign up for the Gentleman's Rapha ride on Saturday 19th October. The only details I have to date is that it is a 150km ride with about 3,500 to 4000m vertical.  You enter a team of six (invitation only) and it is run as a time trial.  Each team of six requires one female (me!) and five male riders. A friend of Frank's is wishing to enter a team, but so far there is only Domenic and myself, so we are looking to enlist four enthusiastic (maybe crazy) cyclists.  The total cost is $150 per team, plus a carton of beer, although I'm not certain what they do with the beer!

If you are interested or know of anybody else who may be, let me know asap.  

Cheers

Julie

I'm going to give it a go, and offered to contact a few others who might be up for it.  Are you a possibility?

Hey Jeremy

Cheers - I do it all myself.  What's your custom jersey design about/for?  I wouldn't mind having a play around for you, I find it all (graphics/designs/videos etc) very enjoyable and do it just for fun.

cheers
Andrew

Hi Dahondude,

Sorry for the late reply regarding the track bike. I bought my bike from Star Cycles Elizabeth. It was a Fuji Track 2.0. All aluminum with a carbon fork. It was a Fuji run out deal and price was under $1000.00 They don't make this one anymore. The bike is shown in the image below :

I have only ridden it a few times at the track. The bike did come with brakes and I have ridden it on the road as well. The standard gearing is a bit too low so I am going to change the gearing and up the gear inches a bit. Hope that helps.

Cheers - Wilson

If I recall correctly a bicycle costs $25 each way for Adelaide to Auburn

I thought you said it hasn't been any windier this year? Not what you reported this morning.

Sounds good.  Best bit is that I dont have to be back near the hotel till 8am.  I will be in my team kit again, Diamond Tours, which you saw on tuesday.

Mate, Sounds like fun. Where do you want to meet?

Thanks for the CRB Hill info Jeremy. Heading over on Sunday morning and coming back Friday (slightly shorter trip than planned due to work circumstance).  Hoping to knock 5 of the 7 peaks over, and tossing up whether to come back through Melbourne and knock Baw Baw off on the way home.  Contemplating putting a blog together, but depends on how many bevies I knock over at the Bright brewery as to how much I get to write down at the end of each day.

Hi Jeremy,

Can you remember from your 3 peaks what Hotham was like, in particular CRB Hill.  Strava is showing it at 45% for the first 200m - surely an error on the strava side.

Cheers,

Brad

My first (and hopefully last) cycling accident

Posted on April 11, 2014 at 20:15 15 Comments

Riding into work today, one minute I was accelerating in a line of traffic to make the lights the next I woke up with a few people around me, a Police officer arrived and then I was bundled into an ambulace and spent the day in the Emergency Department getting stitched up and monitored for brain injury.

I don't remember the crash, nor the immediate minutes afterwards, but a car driver who stopped to help told me tonight that I rode past him and then all of a sudden flipped over my…

Reflections on five months in Europe

Posted on August 18, 2013 at 20:00 6 Comments

My cycling blogs in Europe didn't quite keep pace wih the amount of cycling I did, mostly because I had enough trouble keeping up with my non-cycling blog so the kids have something to look back on when they get older.

We arrived in Santiago de Compostela in early April and left 4 and a bit months later. My el cheapo Decathlon road bike turned out to be a very sound investment - provding over 2500 km of near faultless riding in wind, rain and bajing heat. A few minor issues with the…

Riding in the Picos de Europa - Part 2

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 7:50 0 Comments

Later that day I got to sneak out for a quick ride before dinner. Strava wasn’t much help with route choice so I just picked a loop starting right in the village, not really knowing what was in store. After a solid climb right at the start, I topped a ride to get an incredible view – two parallel ranges (big hills/small mountains) with green valley between.…

Riding in the Picos de Europa - Part 1

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 7:39 2 Comments

We had a four day long weekend in mid May thanks to a festival on the Thursday which created an unofficial holiday on the Friday. The Pyrenees are a long 8-9 hrs drive away - too far for only four days. However there is a relatively little known set of mountains called the Picos de Europa (literally Peaks of Europe) about half way between Santiago and the Pyrenees. I’d heard wonderful things about it from a number of cycling and walking friends so we decided to head over there. Luckily for…
