Balancing at the lights - tricks, tips and mishaps?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Sam Young Apr 18, 2011. 23 Replies

Its been years since I've done it - this morning I fell off my bicycle in front of lots of people at a set of traffic lights. Rather embarrassing actually. What happened is that I slowed down and did…Continue

How do you know when you have the bonk?

I headed out today for a nice 140+ KM cycle. Took a little time, to get my engine fired up and didn't think that much of it - the winner bar seemed to help and I also had a few swigs from a bottle of…Continue

Sitting here a week ago, I would of not of thought I'd have such an

exciting week of cycling. Its a week that will stay in my mind for a

Pegasus Training camp at Noosa Springs. Participated in the training

ride with the cycling pros - Garmin stats here (click Metric top right).

After a couple of days of travel, leaving some time also for my knee to heal, I finally got to the Gold Coast for a cycle with Derek last wednesday. A couple of stops the previous days at Coffs Harbor and Byron Bay were also enjoyable

At the gold coast, we had a great cycle out to springbrock. On the return trip we descended some 17% gradient descents. Upon returning to Broadbeach we headed along the esplanade, stopped at Robbie McEwan's cafe for a latte and admired the wildlife. It… Continue

Checkers Hill - my first attempt

I found Checkers Hill Rd, with the help of my trusty iPhone and its GPS. I headed along, admiring the scenery, thinking this isn't going to be that hard. However, I had a niggling suspicion that… Continue

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that I'd worn out another rear tire. Its a habit I seem to have. Luckily I had a new tire ready and quickly replaced it. I thought I'd change the front as well (was looking rather cut up), as a few long rides were approaching, and it had been on since just after the 2010 Tour Down Under Challenge Ride.

I toke the front wheel off, was struggling a little and then it came free. I heard something bouncing on the floor. It was the front speed sensor. I'd… Continue

Hi Nick, good to see you yesterday, yeahh I do need a photo, better take one soon. Perhaps we can catch up for a ride one weekend (Sundays are generally race days but there are occasional Saturdays free when kids sport doesn't clash).

Hey... nice playlist. Icehouse/ Flowers is probably my favourite record. I've really only just rediscovered it.
