Great Taste Ride summary

This was a good scenic trip for ten BL tourers, with a couple of challenges along the way.

Monday 13/2: The 70 km from Picton to Wairau Valley was a long slog straight into strong headwinds with hundreds of trucks heading along the earthquake detour route to the south. But the Wai-Natur nudist camp we stayed in provided a distraction from thinking about more headwinds the next day.

Wed 15/2: The headwinds hadn't eased off, and a very long…

Perth to Sydney the slow way

Having finished work the Perth the logical way to back to Sydney ( to me ) was to cycle.
I departed Perth on 24 July and having cycled via Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River, Augusta, Permberton, Walpole, Denmark and Esperance I'm at Noresman ready to attack the Nullarbor.

Tour de Sicily

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…

GOLDFIELDS TRACK & OKEEFE RAIL TRAIL

Wonder would there be any interest in doing the Goldfield track (website has this name ).

It basically runs from Bendigo to Ballarat following mostly the old walking track and for most part requires a mountain bike or perhaps a tough tourer.

There is also the Okeefe rail trail  presently running  east of Bendigo for 27km,(will be extended in 2015)

The current issue of RIDEON has an article.

Please advise if interested.

Am…

Pymble - Akuna Bay - West Head - Manly

Stunning scenery along Pittwater, a roller coaster of a ride with hills to thrill and challenge, this ride has a lot to recommend it.



Starting at Pymble station, the ride follows Mona Vale Rd to Terrey Hills. Mona Vale Rd is not too busy in the mornings, and there is frequently a wide verge. The ride is obviously a training run for cyclists, as the numbers of cyclists grew steadily along the way.



Along McCarrs Creek Rd, there is the junction with Liberator General San…

Muswellbrook to Lithgow

"How many hills must on old man ride up, to prove he's a really silly old man?" is the song Bob Dylan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFvkhzkS4bw should write in his senior years.



Silly old men enjoying themselves. Don't you know there is industry to be done, purpose, things to build, commitments. Why, modern life demands certain modes of behaviour.



So we set out from Newcastle, on the local train to Muswellbrook. …

Accessories

What things can you add to your bike to make your cycling a little safer, easier or more comfortable?

Previous discussions have centred on bike mirrors. Here, John is demonstrating his helmet mounted mirror. John and Robert Dunn swear by them, but admit their preference is probably based on what they are used to.…
