...... Really? Who? Gossip! .... Hi Canuck , Please forgive me if my memory is a little vague and/or inaccurate on this - I was never personally involved, nor was I one of the ones who were banned.

The real problem is that the search function was so poor that the users became frustrated and stopped using it.

Re: Clipless Pedals and Cycling Shoes

I've been looking online for cycling shoes and pedals to match, but I can't find any.. I'm also really confused about the sizing for the cycling shoes. If someone could find me some that'd be great. Road bike shoes / pedals (3 clip ins). I'm a size 14 US mens. Hi WarPuzzle , I remember your thread ...

We should be pleased to see that the Forums have been included in the new web page. We could take this as a positive sign that BN are planning on keeping them. This is good news. :D The original " friends & influence " thread started in April 2010 and this " slowing down " th...

Re: First magpie attack of the 2017 season

Riding through Summerfield Park, Glen Iris. Went for me, then for my 5yo. In August! Must be global warming. Yes, they are early this year. Normally they don't start until very late in August or early September. http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/4837610/heads-up-magpie-season-is-starting-ea...

Re: First magpie attack of the 2017 season

YES, they have definitely started. Got swooped on the Warby trail on Thursday 10th & today (13th) in a few different locations on the Yea-Alexandra trail. Hopefully, an early start MIGHT mean an early end?
