"Wow...it's quiet in here.
I see that Bicycle Network Victoria are having their AGM tonight (15/10/13, at 6pm). Any of you guys heading along to find out why they're spending your membership money on threatening the good guys?"
Soon to be a Melbourne resident, currently in Sydney
Now tell us about your bicycles ...
I have a new bike!! I've just rescued an old roadie from where she was abandoned near my work. She has no markings on the frame so I have no idea what she is but I'm going to strip her right back for a complete rebuild, aiming to have her shiny and new for the Tweed Run in June.
I commute to work each day on my Trek 7.5FX which is fitted with a pannier rack for all my work junk. She gets a spin for recreational rides too, and these days I do the shopping with her, way quicker than driving! I'm planning a bit of touring in the future and I imagine I'll take her for that.
I also have a Giant mountain bike which I bought when I was at uni but she hasn't had much use unfortunately. One of these days I'll take her to the track...
What is the best thing about riding?
The ONE best thing? feels good!
A few words about yourself. (This bit is entirely optional!)
~ music ~ soccer ~ change ~ yoga ~ music ~ learning ~ genuine people ~ incense ~ music ~ using my hands ~ using my brain ~ music ~ food ~ the truth ~ things that grow ~ and music
Melb Cyclist is obviously more relaxed than Sydney Cyclist, but we're very friendly. The riding environment here is somewhat different to Sydney. We do still have cycling issues like any large city, but on the whole, riding here is a more acceptable and happy experience. Hope to hear from you soon. ;)
