Re: How was your recreational ride today?

It'll be easier when the clocks change won't it ? Sun will be up earlier … or is getting out early the problem? :?

Either way - good luck ! ;)

Re: Riders killed in Travancore & St Kilda rd Junction

I seem to remember Dan Andrews opposing more bike lanes, esp St Kilda Rd? :roll:

Also Tim Pallas when Minister for Transport ?

Re: How was your recreational ride today?

Despite going to the dark side (power meter on the 'good' bike :lol: ) I still regard all my cycling as recreational. I'm not a racer at all so the PM is just to focus some of my rides to 'training' so I can enjoy all the really good ones. :mrgreen: ;) Had some fun recently with spending 20 minutes ...

Re: First magpie attack of the 2017 season

One belt on the shoulder from a magpie last weekend - first of the season for me here in Melbourne. But there’s been a busy spur-winged plover for the past two weeks on one of my regular routes.

They are pretty harmless, I just keep riding. :wink:

Re: Look what I found on the bike path today....

I once saw a goanna-sized lizard run across the Basin-Olinda Rd 30m ahead of me and up a tree. He was at least 1.2 m long and very fast !

A flock of cockys were going nuts at him. I think he was after a nest up the tree.

Re: RIP - UJ1

Justin's son Simon and a few of Justin's friends went to Bright last week and rode the Alpine Classic as a bit of a memorial ride for UJ1. A good day and a great tribute to Justin, especially from his son Simon and nephew Lincoln, who both rode the 200 under 10 hours in the poor conditions. Simon al...

Re: Another fatality near Bendigo

I rode up there on 'Ride Daylesford' a month or so back.

Looks to be near the top of the 'gap' and should have been good light at 6:25pm.

WTB - Spare Cannondale CAADX Saddle

Anyone have a standard saddle from a Cannondale CAADX from about 2011 onwards lying around? I've had several bikes since my 2011 CAADX (which I still have) but they have all had dodgy saddles. The old CAADX saddle is currently on my Spesh Diverge and is great but I now also have a new(ish) road bike...
