Roadworks
I was very excited when I was riding into work to see a whole lot of men out digging trenches and appearing to be laying cables for the NBN in Rokeby ... Yay, yay, yay ... NBN could finally be on its way to Lauderdale (I currently get an average speed of ar...

2015 Bike Spend
I'm internally compelled to question and think about things, and I rarely accept what's told to me unless it strongly aligns with my own paradigm and understanding of the world. Anyone who's read this blog for a long time will know this, and in particular t...

It's a wonderful world ... if only we noticed
I was cycling into work this morning - having set myself the rather ambitious goal of cycling 5000kms, or 100kms per week, this year - when I happened to glance up the hill towards the bridge and noticed a work-ute bristling with all sorts of safety gear pa...

Youi
Youi ... they get me. It's true, they say so in their adverts and, because I'm not some gullible person that just believes adverts, I checked their website and I am happy to confirm that it says so there as well. So, knowing that they'd get me, I got a quot...

Black Jack Bight
I've been meaning to go for a paddle across to Black Jack Bight (and nearby locations) for years now, and with the extra motivation of having a new flat earth sail installed on my Pace 17 thanks to the hard efforts of Roy, today was finally the day ... We w...

The Seagull Gathering ...
Just while I'm talking beach stuff ... Ever since we moved to Lauderdale, I've been intrigued by the fact that everytime I go down to the beach, there's this one spot where the seagulls always congregate in great numbers. I often found myself pondering what...

Trek 520 Lifetime Frame Warranty
I was planning on joining the Cyclops lads on Monday for a 'Tour de Bruny' ride (a 120km down and back to the Bruny Island Lighthouse) and so knowing I'd need a gravel capable bike for this ride, I pulled the Trek 520 out of the garage, checked the tyres an...

The Surly ECR
I may have mentioned in the past my dream to build my stable of bikes to twelve. I may even have mentioned, in that very same post, that my dream bike could very well be the Surly Krampus 29+. Well that was before Surly brought out the ECR ... Now I'll be h...

Boo ...
Have you ever watched the Weeping Angels  on Doctor Who? If you haven't, then the premise is that there is a predatory race that resemble statues and as long as you watch them, they can't move and you're safe, but the second you blink they're suddenly on to...

Kim's Bruny Island Ultra
So three rather awesome things happened today. The first was that I saw (in the space of thirty minutes) eleven quolls, a betong and a potoroo all whilst driving from Great Bay to Dennes Point on Bruny Island at 4.30am in the morning ... which makes me thin...

The Star Thower ...
Have you ever heard the star thrower story ? It's a lovely little parable (check out the link above) about the difference in view between a young boy and an old man both confronted with tens of thousands of starfish washed up on a beach after a storm. The o...
