Re: Boden's bike beaten by a Bollard

Walking home the other day I saw one of these, not sure if it is the right size head tube though a bollard would be no match... Only $50 too!

Police and Hollywood Crescent

In my usual role as pack fodder approaching the Beacon Hill sprint this morning (culmination of the farm team/TS Hill Ride) a motorcycle cop pulled up beside me. I thought it was my lucky day when she asked if I rode along Hollywood Crescent every day at "this time". (Do you come here often?) Not to...

Re: Three Ferries Ride, Monday, April 7

Fishermen and Roadies occupy the same niche (liars) when it comes to describing their exploits. I should have known better when I read "Caution! This is not a race or even a training ride. This is a ride, just a day on two wheels exploring and having an adventure". I quickly knew I was in for it wit...

Re: Tripleshot Yoga

I went for my first ever yoga session inspired by this thread. I have to confess I was a bit terrified of the prospect but it was awesome! The studio is on Astoria off Maplewood.

Re: C

My desire to ride my bike was washed away during the Tour de Victoria so need to get back at it. I have been gaining "momentum" so will make every attempt to clean the rust off the chain and see you tomorrow am.

Maybe you can borrow one of your son's $300 pair of glasses - he seems to have several. . . .

Re: Is this why you go so fast

After the usual morning ride this morning the conversation turned to Victoria amateurs doping. I hung my head in shame. For a little over a year now I have been taking a magic elixer to help my aging body recover more quickly after the afternoon rides. I kept it well hidden in the back of the fridge...

Re: Chilli 200k - March 3rd 2013

Here is the link. Good idea to pre-register even if you are not 100% sure you will be riding. It allows the organizer to arrange the controls and of course how much chili to make.
