    Anyone scavenging in my pantry in search of a nightly snack would be sadly disappointed .... a jar of snakes, some sultanas and pecan nuts and that's it unless you feel like baked beans or sardines on toast.

    I'm a boring person! :eek:

    (ok, I did have some Lindt chocolate but I ate it! :p)

    I'll have the snakes please. They don't exist here. And Hershey chocolate is almost inedible.

    Cheers mate! You want the 08 P-R? It's in French is the only downside, the upside is of course the commentators are fixated on 'Tombernan' and don't even notice when 'Ohgradee' goes off the front.

    Orright northern TANners, anyone here have any jerseys (or other surplus cycling gear) sitting in the back of the cupboard that they would like to donate to some kids doing the GVBR?

    Let me know and I will arrange to collect and pass them on.

    We have until November. If you're talking an American men's L/XL I would think that would be pretty big?

    Gus, first week in August sounds fine for a TAN ride. Now all I have to do is actually get on the bike a few times between now and then. :rolleyes:

    When's the bicycle racing season in Oz? Please excuse my ignorance.


    I imagine riding in Sydney in August may require leg and arm warmers at a minimum. Dee might need some winter bike apparel as Brisbane is warm and sunny 360 days a year... :)

    Dunno about all the different clubs for racing mate. But yeah, in August it'll be a touch cold if we start before 0900.

    Nah, Sydney winters are lovely ...... dry and sunny during the day, arm and leg warmers only required by purse carrying nancy boys. Might need a long sleeved jersey in a pinch. Hell, we used to sail on the harbour in the Sunday winter series races in shorts and t-shirts - I can only recall 2 or 3 occasions when we needed anything warmer.
