I'm new to town... new to the Australia for that matter. I'm looking to see if anyone would like to meet up near Kensington to ride say 30 or 40k. I've only been back at cycling for a short time and…Continue
I only have one bike here as I've recently moved here from California, USA. I have a 2008 Velo Vie Vitesse 300. Very light frame (930g) and extremely stiff. Rolling on Mavic Ksyrium Elites, Ultegra 9spd group, Fizik seat, Alien Carbon Post, Bontrager race wing bars, Ultegra pedals and a Garmin Edge 305 GPS. It does the job. http://www.velovie.com/catdesc.php?cPath=1&categories_id=23&...
What is the best thing about riding?
The mobility of being out doors.
A few words about yourself. (This bit is entirely optional!)
I'm a 38 year old American new to Australia. I've recently gotten back into cycling and I've fallen in love with it all over again. I'm ready to start being challenged to pick up the pace.
so is there still a few people meeting up for a ride around the Kensington/Flemington area? I'm in Maribyrnong and are keen to meet up with some fellow riders as I'm a bit over this solo rinding thing...
"Well, I ride every day... but err, just to work and back (in the CBD).
I generally do the Belgian Beer Cafe ride every month (last Sat of the month). So that's this Sat. Planning on leaving my place about 6:50. BBC -> BlackRock -> BBC…"
I just moved over from Ireland and waiting for bikes to arrive from shipping in the next 2-3 weeks. Do you guys still go out regularly or can recommend some good routes? Been off the bike now for almost months so would be interested in some…"
"we were looking to ride tomorrow but I am watching my university play in a HUGE football bowl game in the morning.. if it's not raining, I'm game for an afternoon ride or even Sunday.. my email is email@example.com
Catch up with you…"
Welcome back! (Hi Hielke, Cory and Nick)
We could do a ride on Sunday morning (or arvo), with breakfast/brunch/coffee. The weather forecast at this stage is for a dry day.
If you like Nick, send me a "Friend Invite" and I can…"
"I have a action cam too.. not that high quality but it's waterproof... and for that reason it makes the audio suck.. I can mount mine to my helmet but it looks pretty funny, only did it once and got a lot of film of the ground.. I think…"
"Hi Nick, Pete, Cory and Heilke,
I tried posting on here with my iphone a couple of times but for some reason it doesn't go through...anyway.. I've been back from the states for over a week and a half now and all I did was eat while over…"
welcome to Melbourne Cyclist. I am sure you will find some riding partner's. I usually ride on my own for I just go out when I feel like it. Plus being in my late 50's most of the riding groups about my age only have very short rides with a break in between. (truth is, if I rode with a group they would show up how bad I am.)
