Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Not much good since last Tuesday....Trike is now (gulp) 14 years old, and chewed out the second set of pads of its original equipment Zoom disks. :cry: Wednesday trip to my LBS (Marcus at Walkers Wheels Montmorency, thoroughly recommended) and discussion about possible replacement options. Zoom dis...

Re: How was your commute today

Today's commute was worse than yesterday's. I've had more than enough of living in this cyclist-hating country. I wish I had the guts to kill myself instead of hanging on like a damned coward.

Re: How was your commute today

After another eventful commute, I have no words for how much I hate this country. : (

Re: How was your commute today

I'm liking this summer, or at least the 2020 part of it: the temperatures are pretty mild compared to December. What a shame that the roads are still filled with aggressive drivers.

No, it was terrible. It was very hot and very humid, and I'm knackered.

Re: How was your commute today

My commute home is both long and hilly, and the hills get longer and steeper the closer I get to home. Today, it was very hard work.

Re: How was your commute today

I'm feeling really depressed lately :( I had another moron in a UAV deliberately overtake me at close range this morning, then I read the news after getting to work, and the Herald Sun published another 2 anti-cyclist letters (and never bothered publishing the one I sent them earlier this week). The...

Re: How was your commute today

Riding up a very steep hill on the Koonung Creek Trail, I had a very close encounter with a brown snake. :shock: Suddenly, the hill just didn't seem steep.

Re: How was your commute today

Another day, another ignorant moron writing to the Herald Sun to demand that cyclists pay registration fees and be fined more. The editors of that paper are partly to blame for allowing this garbage to be printed. It doesn't surprise me, though, because this is the same paper that regularly allows A...

Re: How was your commute today

My home/work commutes certainly melt off any holiday weight! :mrgreen: The weights for the last 4 Fridays (always measured on Friday afternoons) are:
- Fri 3: 86.5kg (at the end of 2 weeks holiday, with no cycling)
- Fri 10: 84.5
- Fri 17: 83.5
- Fri 24: 80.0

:P

Re: How was your commute today

Why do Australian motorists insist on their so-called "right" to drive at the speed limit (at least), regardless of the weather conditions? Bloody idiots.

Re: How was your commute today

There was a minor flooded section of Koonung Creek Trail just east of Bulleen Rd yesterday, and some genius had placed a "Water on road" sign right in the middle of the path. Gee, thanks, Captain Obvious! :roll: The water wasn't too deep, though: I rode through it with the water not quite ...

pfft, isn't that what a wet weather bike is for? ;)

Only if you own that many bicycles.

Re: How was your commute today

Looked at the radar and figured the wet weather gear could live in the pack. Lots and lots of mud on the GCT just next to Kooyong tennis center, might have been challenging if I was on the roadie, but the wet weather bike was not bothered. Also, is it just me, or is the rain pattern a bit odd latel...
