Been a over a year since I rode to work regularly. Rode to work today mostly due to a local ride2work promotion. It's 35km from home to work so I did a bit of train in the middle. I am hoping to work...

Toilet breaks for a 8yo girl

My 8yo daughter wants to do longer rides with me. But where I like to ride there aren't any many toilets or traffic and sometimes they may be 2km too far. :)

Any ideas? She is mainly concerned...

I chain it up to the bike racks at school. On the rare occasions I have ridden with an empty tagalong I feel like a bit of a doofus. I keep expecting people to ask me if I have lost a child. :)

I ride with 8yo (on her own bike) and 6yo (tagalong) when I can convince them it will be fun. I guess that's about once a week. It helps that school is only about 1.5km away and it's on the way to...

$900 fine and 3 month driving suspension for drink cycling in Australia

This in my local newspaper.

http://www.thechronicle.com.au/news/bike-crash-proves-costly-drunk-defence-force-man/1936184/

Seems a bit harsh to me.

Blaming the victim?

There isn't a single lock that can't be defeated. I hear that co2 works really well on most locks.

I am not too disappointed. I made it the 72km to Inglewood, and that was my first goal. I should have had some lunch and then pushed myself to get out there again, but maybe next time.
