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?...

Would Matt1's ride last Thursday be compliant under the new regime?

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...

Re: The end of apartheid?

Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaark, they want $30 per month subscription for that newsletter. Some cyclists are choking at the prospect of $8 per month for their Strava fix. However the articles do not IMNSOH opinion cover any new ground. And as for anti cyclist behaviour being more prevalent in the Antipodes I s...

Strava

Strava have announced that the KOM etc segments will no longer be available on their free section of the app and if you want to know your position on the leader boards you now have to pay. So much whining like dodgy diffs (these used to be a component of a rear wheel drive car and early models tende...

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...

Re: How was your commute today

Had a nasty close pass from a bus a couple of weeks ago and submitted a complaint (with video) to PTV. A good response: We write in response to your serious complaint regarding the dangerous driving actions of our driver in bus number 1141 on the 03/03/2020 Case XXXXXX. Firstly we would like to apo...
