Tour de Sicily

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 8:00 3 Comments

Last day in Sicily, after three weeks and about 700 km of cycling. Tomorrow I fly to Rome and then Copenhagen to see my son and also meet Elaine, who has been on a choral tour with Bel Acapella.

I started on May 1, at Palermo airport, and now back in Palermo itself, taking the train to the airport in the morning, which is 35 km out of town.

I went anticlockwise around the coast of Sicily to Trapani, Marsala, Sciacca, Agrigento,then a train trip into the centre to Caltanissetta…

Missing Australian explorer Leichhardt and his map (Photo: National Library of Australia; State Library of new South Wales)

Leichhardt was named after Ludwig Leichhardt who was born 200 years ago this year. He came to Australia in 1842 after studying Natural Sciences in Germany, and was a very talented scientist. He led several minor exploring expeditions  then completed a very long and difficult journey in 1844-5 from Moreton Bay near Brisbane to Port Essington, north of present Darwin.

On return he planned another expedition from the east coast to the west coast of Australia. He…

LBUG kept rolling in 2012, with over 35 day rides and several longer tours, thanks to our ride leaders. We have ten BNSW accredited leaders. Rides ranged from the regular EasyRides on the first Sunday of the month to Mike Macdonald's 2 week tour of the Flinders Ranges. Heather Manning organised several good weekend tours to country NSW. Jamie Honan organised the Yass to Wee Jasper weekend.



LBUG members also participated in the Supertuesday bike counts for local councils (organised by… Continue

EasyRide to Eveleigh

Posted on August 5, 2012 at 13:22 0 Comments

Thanks to everyone for coming along on our August EasyRide. Perfect weather for a cruise around the foreshores of Glebe and Pyrmont and through Darling Harbour. Then we wound our way through Ultimo and Glebe to Victoria Park to City Road, left down Codrington from the Uni Gates, to Eveleigh Market for a coffee and a browse in the arts and craft stalls (first Sunday of every month). There are plentiful bike racks and seats in the sun for a cup of coffee.



Welcome to the new riders… Continue

Thanks for the welcome Bob.
I saw a group from Leichhart in Parramatta this morning and wished I was among them. Was told next Sunday at Cafe Italia I think. Looking forward to riding with you

Hi Bob, It was very nice meeting you all, a shame I could not make it to the end of the ride. But it was all good just had to walk to the cycle shop a to get the tube repaired. 

See you next time.

Thanks Bob. Will probably be out on the next easy ride.

Thanks again

Hi Bob 

Thanks for the welcome...yes you will see me on as many rides as you have going and there is a good chance that I will put up a few myself I am registered for the http://sy12.conquercancer.org.au/site/PageServer?pagename=sy12_homepage so lets get those nice long rides happening

Hi Bob, thanks for the speedy welcome!

Work commitments prohibit me from adding much to the weekend rides but hopefully will get to a mid-week one somewhere down the track. I was more interested in bicycle/transit advocacy, especially Cr Kogan's push for a Sydney Ciclovia or Sunday Streets so if there's a way for me to get a bit more involved with that then I'm all ears!

Hi Bob, I signed up because I intended to go on that ride with you to Garden Island, but then realised it clashed with a skateboard event I'd already committed to. I would have been interested to poke around there and check out the navy. Sounds like it was interesting.

Lisa and I keep intending to come on one of your LBUG weekend tours one day, but keep umming and ahhing over whether we could manage it with a 3-year old on a cargo bike. We went on our own three-day trip a few weekends ago, doing about 40km a day, and that was easy enough. Longer might be OK.

Cheers,

Colin

Hi Bob,
How do I find out more about/book for the ride on Sunday the 10th March?
Thanks
Wendy
