Winter Challenge 2015 Road Bike Pre-Rode
Have you ever played one of those picture games they used to have in newspapers and magazines where you have to see if you can spot a number of very minor differences between what are otherwise two nearly identical pictures? If so then you get the gist of w...

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...

Would the real winter please stand up ...
I think like pretty much every other Tasmanian (that wasn't already stuck in snow), I've been salivating since Monday's snow event (which had snow settled on the beaches) to get out and play in the snow. Except  I think I've been salivating a bit more becau...

Good deed day ...
This may sound strange, but as much as I hate that moment of terror when a car flicks past you too close and too fast, what I really hate about vehicular incidents on a bicycle is the powerlessness of knowing that even if you feel like you were nearly kille...

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...
