Photobomber

 

 

I was setting up my GoPro to shoot some video of me whilst I was heading down the hill from Waterfall to the RNP Weir when I got "photobombed".

 


 

 

Showing off the new paint job on the Giant TCR

 

 

I have had my Gaint TCR by ColourFuel down on captain Cook Dr, Caringbah. Looks and feels like a brand new bike especially after Chain Reaction Cronulla rebuilt it for me.

Cape Solander at Sunset on the Pizza Ride

 

 

Paul, Tony B and I did the Pizza ride and with daylight saving no longer on we found ourselves out at Cape Solander right on sunset with a beautiful display of colour. Unfortunately I only had my iPhone camera which does not do the colours justice.

How to take a Mud Bath without really trying

 

 

Pete and Jan out on their mountain bikes in the Royal National Park after the recent heavy rains. What were they thinking? Maybe a drive through car wash on the way home might be a good idea.

Gravel biking in Darkes Forrest

 

 

Gravel Riding (Tuesday 14-1-2020) around the fire trails in Darkes Forrest. Was loads of fun though very exhausting even if only a 40K ride. Paul rode his MTB and Cliff and I rode our Giant Revolt gravel bikes (thanks @chainreactioncronulla). The Revolts handled the terrain like a dream. Soooo comfortable.

We only had one hill we had to walk and it was tough even to walk (27% gradiant - sheesh!). The only mishap of the day was Cliff misreading the depth of one of the creek crossings (there were a few) which caused him to fall off and go completly under the water. Very funny to watch though I'm sure he didn't think so. What was even worse was I missed getting the shot and when I asked Cliff if he would go back and lie in the water so I could get a shot - well you can imagine what he said.

All in all it was a great morning followed by the biggest bacon and egg rolls we have ever had at the Helensburg Nursery. Can't wait to go explore another gravel road. CLICK HERE to view Slideshow.

Centennial Park, round & round we go

 

 

Headed into Centennial Park to do some laps with my son Michael who has recently taken up cycling and brother Paul who is leading out.


Out on the Gravel Bike

 

 

Took the gravel bike out (Tuesday 7-1-2020) for a pedal along Lady Carrington Dr then up the hill to the Garie Look Out and off to Bundeena to catch the ferry home. This image is at the Audely end of the ride where I bumped into these guys as they back to Audley.


The Thirsty Koala

 

 

Friday morning (3-1-2020) one the Adelaide ride groups, The Lanterne Rouge, that I rode with during my time in SA stopped to help a thirsty koala as they were riding up to Norton Summit. They think it is the same koala that was in the video that ran a few days ago across a wide range of media. They also think he has learnt that cyclists mean water. After giving it some water the Good Dr Bill Griggs carried him to a house on the side of the road that had a number of water bowls put out for thirsty animals. The blood is on Bill's arm where the koala tried to latch on.

Criterium around North Adelaide

 

 

An image from my time in Adelaide shot at a local criterium. I spent four wonderful years in Adelaide from the end of 2012 to the end of 2016 where I was fortunate enough to be able to join several ride groups.


 

My brother Paul on last Thursday night's Pizza Ride. Only 2 of us for the ride but 12 for pizza. Was a good night of eating, drinking and laughing 😄. Oh and a good night for riding as well. As Goldilocks would say, not too hot, not too cold, not too windy, just right �
