Does anyone know where I can see details of the changes to the intersection at East Ave/Cromer Parade to "improve" the bikeway that passes through there?There's lots of paint on both sides of the…Continue
I'm trying to find someone who might have a couple of buggered Dura Ace 7900 shifters lying around in their shed that I might be able to scounge some parts from.I'm after a left hand side Name Plate…Continue
A few years back we got a dog, a smallish, cuteish, curly haired thing. Being part of the family we take it most places with us, including camping trips. We also like riding our bikes, so I bought a…Continue

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.Continue
