    Post pregnancy cycling

    Utterly Australian !!! When she takes off on her bike for the first time, (which with her pedigree is likely to be by the age of 2), you can yell "Goanna!!!!" Is there a second name? How about: Vespa Bianc(a)/(hi) (or just go with Celeste) Phixie Vittoria Giordana Duallie

    Alpine classic - who's in?

    Have you guys registered for the event. My mate (big Pete) is hyper-organised and got is pre-registration codes etc and got us booked in quite early. I will be swapping the compact cranks back on in the new year for that extra bit of insurance. I understand the climbs aren't that steep -...

    Alpine classic - who's in?

    Yeah we've been doing Nebo frequently. Mt Gravatt is close to where I live so its convenient for a bunch of repeats before work. We rode to the gold coast last weekend and did the Springbrook climb which is only 8km at 6%. Still have some climbing legs left from france, though not much...

    Alpine classic - who's in?

    Yep, flights, car hire, accom etc all booked up. I think I've betrayed a lack of confidence by booking for the 6.20am start. This is my first alpine classic, so it will be a case of dialling in an all day pace and just making sure we (a mate is coming down with me) finish it and enjoy the...

    French Vacation

    We didn't do any group tours at all. In provence we stayed in Carpentras which is about 25 km to Bedoin where the ascent of Ventoux begins. In the Alps we stayed in a ski village called Les Deux Alpes which is very central to all the climbs we did in that area. The only problem with that...

    Really freakin frustrating, Red lights

    I've been trying to convert red light runners on my daily commute over the last week - with varying degrees of success. If I have a good hard look at myself, I think I started doing this as a way of venting some serious work-related frustrations / finding some conflict (its a jungle out there...
