Strava grew out of our own needs as athletes.

We envisioned Strava as the means to put our workouts and races into context. We call that social fitness.Today, Strava lets athletes all over the world experience social fitness – sharing, comparing and competing with each other's personal fitness data via mobile and online apps.…See More

Hi Jack,
The film nights are in the rear lounge area, don't know if you saw that back in August, it's quite spacious. At the moment there's no need to book.

No worries, I might check it out one day next week on the way to work.
Gunna drive tomorrow so I can pick up half a bike around the corner from work - cranks look OK !

Hey Jack, do you know if the overpass on Burwood Hwy near your place is open yet?
I can see it's up when I ride along the board walk but never been bothered to go and check it out.
The one over Witehorse Rd is coming along well. Pity there isn't going to be one over Canterbury Rd.. not sure why.
Cheers, Chris

hey Jack, yep Danny apparently broke his ankle while trying to attempt the fence post cycle - and it took him something like 14 goes to get it right! and then he smashed his heels on one of the street scope tricks he did when he landed after flying off a wall and then the stairs.
Tell you what - he has persistence.
It's truly incredible what practice and perseverance can achieve! I can watch it again and again!
