Re: Jokes.

Back in the early 90s, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Arnold Scwarzenegger were getting a little tired of being cast as muscle bound action heroes, and decided to collaborate on a movie about 18th century composers. When it came time to decide who would play what, Stallone said, “I’l...

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

Not surprised.

No ATB and no GVBR will make a very large hole in BV's bottom line for 2020-2021

But then getting take away is not part of the exercise routine is it? Or is it?


No, I don't think that that was the intention. The one hour window is meant for exercise!

Not as healthy as Canuck's but great on a cold winter night: Butter Chicken (unlike a certain Werribee person who gained some media attention travelling a long distance for his butter chicken Handi Indian Restuarant on the corner of Canterbury Rd and Boronia Rd is just over 1km from us.)

You also wonder why someone from Mont Albert was so far away from home with this lockdown.


I hope she gets a $1,652 fine.

She may not be entirely at fault for the collision.

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

This is in the price range that I would expect from Alltrails for example but Alltrails provide all meals.

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

I doubt this year's ride will go ahead, even if the current restrictions are relaxed. Having 4,000 people close together, using the same amenities and sweating all over each other doesn't seem like a good idea. And a month later not much has changed. Now what about the Around the Bay. Some of those...

Santini Face Masks

A bargain at $129.95 from Cecil Walker Cycles. A back story about being made in Italy. After their Choina Virus outbreak Santini stopped their cycling clothing line and started making masks to try and address the shortage in Italy. BTW is this suggesting that cyclists in Melbourne should wear masks?...

Re: Parkiteer

I can't remember now. My mobile doesn't handle phone menu options well. I just remember hanging on for ages. I think I had to hang up to get off the train. Tomorrow I'll take some twist ties and tie the latches held by the rusty old padlocks that look like they haven't been opened in years. If nobo...

Re: Parkiteer

I used to have one of the lockers about 30 years ago. a lot more secure IMO than a Parkiteer cage. Re BV, with the possibility of reduced or no cash flows at all from ATB and GVBR this year they could well be laying off paid staff and volunteers may be staying at home. 1800 639 634 gets an automated...
