Your help would be most appreciated, Adelaide Cycloverse, if you could point me at someone who could possibly take a dent out of my rear wheel. Thank you all very much. :-)Continue

Fitz's Challenge report...

Posted on November 1, 2011 at 11:18 0 Comments

For all those interested, I did complete the 105km Fitz's Challenge ride on Sunday (+10km each way before and after). It was one of the hardest things I have ever done. The outward leg was not too bad with lots of fun (and fast) down-hill sections where I reached speeds of around 80km/h+. The homeward leg was a really hard slog. Most of the last 30km were uphill and all of it was into a strong head wind.

On top of the physical issues, there were hundreds of motorcycles on the road…


Fitz's Challenge fund raising...

Hi there all you Adelaidians! Long time no see.


I thought I would let you all know that I am riding in Fitz's Challenge on the weekend, riding 105km with the University of Canberra Cycling Team (aka Team Lycra) and the Uni is collecting donations on behalf of the Oncology Children's Foundation. I also have a swish new kit to ride in... photos after the ride.


I know that this is a cause that is close to the hearts of many in the AC community, and I also know…


Farewell to old Adelaide forever... well, at least for the next few years!

This is my farewell post. I had been talking of going on a few local rides with AC friends before leaving Adelaide to move to Canberra, but alas, this is not to be.


I got part way through the Williamstown Grand Slam at the end of May and my bottom bracket started making funny noises... Bearings gone. This wasn't a huge issue and I had been still…


Bikes STOLEN... grrr!

Posted on May 24, 2011 at 11:32 11 Comments

Hi all! It is with great sadness that I must report that two of our bikes were stolen from our back yard last night.


The first was my wife's beloved Repco Traveller (pictured). This bike has little monetary value, but is Jewlz' primary form of transportation and is sorely missed.

hey Andrew,
No not going in the Amy ride, been very slack over winter so not in any shape to do a ride like that. Looking for a small bunch ride that rides on either a mon night or a sun. I can only do every second sun but every mon night. If you can help that would be much appreciated.
