What's going on hybrid riders. I found this thread back on page 3, is no one riding there bikes anymore

I've been cleared to ride my bikes to work on my fitness 17 months after spinal fusion surgery, "Woohoo".

Just an easy ride along the River Torrens to the ocean.

I drove my Alfa Romeo then rode my Peugeot.


Just after he tried to chew on my tire.








And a selfie before heading home. I'm around 10kg more weighty than my last ride here.

^ You have no reason to be home sick where you are. I'm actually a little jealous of it.

Beautiful photos and bikes! It's great to see the different scenery and parts of the world everyone lives and rides in. We had a break in the 10 days of "high wind advisory" so we (my Vita and I) went out to Red Rock on Saturday.

I'm a relative novice, and ride ~60-70 miles per week, so the bike only has about 1500 miles on in since Nov.

It was nice mild temperatures but overcast today. I rode along the Torrens River again but in the opposite direction towards the Adelaide Hills.



I've show'n the O'barn busway before here. The only system outside Germany they run on tracks up to 110kph and still drive on the road to pickup points at either end of the tracks. There's talk of more O'barn Express systems.





I rode up Gorge Road where I ride road bikes but stopped before the really steep parts, I don't think my back and legs are ready for that yet.

I wish I had my wide angle lens for this shot!!








It was a great days riding.

^ Great shots Matty.

A very dark and windy day today, not so good for photos but good for riding "no rain" Rode city to surf and along the coast.

Just a short, 8.5 mile ride at dawn this morning on a neighborhood greenbelt that follows a watershed. I forgot to eat a protein bar or anything before leaving the house, but I ingested enough insects to make of up the nutritional oversight...

Lewisville Lake north of Dallas/Fort Worth. The most dangerous lake in Texas in terms of deaths. Wearing a helmet is one thing, but now they want me to wear a life jacket while riding my Fuji?????

Had another great ride today. Rode from the city up Norton Summit Rd. I put a pair of 1.10 slicks on the pug and she climbed well despite the power to weight ratio, that is the bike me and camera gear.

This is near the start of the climb.


This near the Norton Summit Hotel but still some distance to Montacute Rd that follows a twisting up and down ridge line that flows well.




This is where I turned off Montacute onto Corkscrew Rd for a fast down hill to Gorge Rd.


Riding back along one of a maze of tracks to the city along Linear Park to finish another great ride.

So, in the southern hemisphere, do your cranks go the opposite direction, or is that just toilets that flush the opposite direction??? I enjoy your shots. Thanks for sharing!
