Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

I've already put my hand up again (unofficially with my team leader) to volunteer for the full twelve days of next year's G(SA&)VBR - my team needs to arrive at the start two days early 8-) This will be my third ride as a volunteer, having previously ridden 5 GVBR & 2 GTBR. I agree that it t...

Re: RIP - UJ1

I worked with Justin for many years. He and I shared many discussions over the years on cycling matters, politics and of course, critiques about our workplace. As he was approaching retirement, he was told by Lefty that he had to N-1 if he wanted to buy his retirement present to himself, a lovely Ge...

Re: Super Tuesday count

I didn't volunteer on Super Tuesday. When I checked (fairly soon after BN called for volunteers) there were no locations shown in Boroondara. Given the zero vacancies in Boroondara, and the many vacancies elsewhere, I assumed that Boroondara had decided not to participate this year. It looks like my...

Re: Cycling Journal - (incl My Cycling Log details)

I just tried to log in for the first time in a few years, full of good intentions to use the site as motivation to increase my kilometres this year.

Looks like I'll need to use something else to tot up my rides.

Re: GVBR 2017

it appears to be "a tad damp under foot" :lol: :lol: Is that you (jvb) just entering the Bar. :) That's before it got properly wet - you can still see the grass. Later the water was a bit deeper, and then on Sunday if was ankle deep wet mud. I didn't hear any reports about Trafalgar (my t...

Re: GVBR 2017

I went to Tidal River on Thursday so we'd be ready for the volunteers to arrive on the Friday. We had the site almost to ourselves so, after we had finished our set up, we could enjoy an almost empty beach 8-) Friday and Saturday weren't too hectic until the weather broke on Saturday evening; then i...

Re: Melburn-Roobaix 2017

One year I'd like to do the Melburn-Roobaix, but this year it clashes with the annual Rockdogs vs Megahertz match at the Reclink Community Cup.

Re: folding bike suggestions or similar

We have a couple of Hooligans as our fun bikes. Hooligans are only slightly shorter than big-wheeled bikes - most of the saving in length is because it uses 406 wheels. As for the rest, it uses standard components, so no saving. Do you want some measurements? Or you could try ours next time you visi...

Re: A new bell - Knog "Oi" on Kickstarter

It's a new product line for knog, but one that fits well with general vibe of the company. For all the reasons mentioned above, kickstarter is an appropriate channel to test viability. They're not on their pat in using KS for a nw w product line - I often see KS campaigns by specialist photographic ...

Re: Credit Card touring - GVBR cost index.

...This is the bike touring forum and my post was directed at the 60 or cycle tourers in Victoria rather than the 6,000 GVBR participants. Sorry - my mind reading skills must be lacking at the moment. Hey Baudman When I was at school in the sixth decade of the last century we did not have a subject...

Re: Ride the Night 2015 - 1 Feb 2015

The weather was no friend to the ride, but the ride's problems were due to more than inclement conditions. I was curious as to how BNV would solve the problem of moving 2500 riders through city streets with frequent traffic lights and along bike paths with their attendant limitations. The answer is ...
