Short term review: Vittoria Open Pave CG tyres.
Well loved Shimano R500 wheels and Vittoria Open Pave CG's. Pretty much indestructible. Anyone who has done much riding will tell you that wheels - and in particular tyres - are the most important single component if you're seeking to get the best performan...

The only thing you can be sure of when pedestrians are around is that they will do something unpredictable.

I once had a lady, looking the other way, launch a kid in a stroller out onto the road just as I approached. I can only assume she thought "can't hear a car, all is good". I couldn't count how many adult pedestrians have done the same.

It shouldn't be this hard.
On March 6 last year I was out riding with a friend when a driver drew level with me, suddenly floored his accelerator and fishtailed left and right, his tires squealing. He repeated the performance when he passed my riding companion who was perhaps 30m up ...

Audax Bruny Lighthouse Dash 120km
Bruny Island is quickly shaping up as one of my favourite cycling destinations in Southern Tasmania. There really is a lot to like about the place. It's an island of great scenic beauty, there is relatively little traffic and even the hills aren't too steep...

2014 annual report
2014 wasn't my best year on the bike, but it was one of my most enjoyable. I tend to look back at the end of each year and the raw stats look like this: 4,359km in 215 hours for an average speed of 20.28km/h. I rode 188 times, with an average ride distance ...

Florentine mission.
The Florentine Valley is remote, but a particularly scenic destination for cycling There's a loop that's been tempting me for a while up in the heart of the Florentine Valley, a bit over an hour north-west of Hobart. It's a shade over 100km on forestry road...

Audax Wuthering Heights 150km
Stunning riding through tall forests on the way back from Bronte Lake. Each year a talented and handsome ride organiser, who I shall call Chris, runs a ride that centres on a fishing lodge at Bronte Lake in the central highlands of Tasmania. There's the opt...
