The Perfect Ride ...
I cycled out of work tonight, and it was just going to be a normal ride home as part of the winter commute. Like usual, I took it fairly easy as I cycled out into the traffic and across onto the cycle path running along the waterfront. I pulled up at the Ev...

That stupid cyclist - Part II
It seems that at least once a week I will experience a close encounter with a vehicle, and I would guess that in most cases the driver is probably either oblivious to the terror they've just caused, or like me on occasion, they're sitting in there car think...

That detox diet thing ...
So the other week, I was skipping through random shows on Netflix trying to find some mindless Friday night viewing, when I came across a movie that sort of sung out to me ... fat, sick and nearly dead . This is basically a docu-movie  about a guy (Joe Cros...

That rude cyclist
I'm sure that somewhere in Hobart right now there is a lady telling this same story. It's a story about how she was walking over the bridge minding her own business when this cyclist came flying up behind her, screaming at her to get out of the way ... At l...

Winter Commute Challenge - Week 3
Well if last week was bad, this week in the Winter Commute Challenge, was a disaster. My man-flu from Friday erupted into full on " I'm sure this is the end of the world and I'm going to die " man-flu that night, and I had to suffer through the weekend, mos...

The Winter Challenge
I spend a lot of time concocting new challenges and adventures in my head as I slowly cycle along on my various adventures ... Example - why not ride Japan on a folding bike. Unfortunately, I'm not so good at actually seeing most of them through. I essentia...

Winter Commute Challenge - Week 8
I went home via Rokeby hills again on Thursday night. Daylight recreation (looks so much different at night) Yea I got lost (again) and it took more time than I had allowed for to get home, but while everyone else was sitting in their nice warm cars, or at ...

Winter Commute Challenge Week 6 - The Revenge of the Road.
I already know I have a low emotional intelligence IQ (I've been tested), but this week I think I learnt I also have a non-existent "The World is trying to tell you something" IQ. Monday started as normal.  I pulled on the cycling gear, went down to the gar...

Winter Commute Challenge - Week 6
I have a problem. I seem to have an inbuilt need  to destroy myself. Whether it's boot-camps or competing in fun runs and mountain bike races, there always seems to be a point where I'll decide I can do more .  It's a point where I know that although I can'...

The Winter Commute Challenge - Week #4
And we have a win! But I get ahead of myself.  If you've got no idea what I'm on about with this Winter Commute Challenge, then here's a quick recap:  For some whimsical reason that I've almost forgotten, I dreamt up this idea of doing a winter commute chal...

Winter Commute Challenge - Week 2
So ... week two of the Winter Challenge. It didn't go so well ... Monday was a public holiday (so that's a bye), and Tuesday I was on monster drop off duty, so that's a point to winter. Wednesday and Thursday were my planned riding days, but they were also ...

The Unlikely Voyage of Jack De Crow ...
While I may have made the transition from books to kindles, one thing hasn't changed ...  I still love to read. It relaxes me, it's my time out, it's what I do to unwind at the end of the day and prepare for sleep and perhaps most importantly, virtually eve...
