Aorta direct that Herald Sun reporter to a suburban bike shop and find out about being kitted out with a decent hybrid for well under a gorilla.

Energy food

I eat bananas myself.

They also contain salts (potassium maybe) which helps to prevent cramps.

I would really like to see registration fees based on odometer readings. I make an effort to use public transport or ride a bike, yet I pay the same rego fee as someone who insists on driving into the CBD every day.

Sound like you really need an old fashioned touring bike. Comes with drop handlebars but a slightly longer wheelbase than a road bike - not quite as responsive as the road bike but a lot better than a hybrid. Tourers have frame clearance for larger tyres to handle the trails and I am quite comfortab...

Jeremy & Mfanwee Knox Bicycle Touring Club has an annual ride up Donna Buang. For the last few years we have used the "back route" from Launching Place, Don Road etc. I always ride this on my 700X28mm tyred tourer. A mountain bike is not compulsory for the ascent! We return down the main road, a...
