Yes, it took us till 1pm to get there. We were doing well when I yelled out to Weiyun. We waited for the tandem at all the stops. So, with the waiting and the tyre fixing and brow mopping, we finally got to the brewery. Even the bartender asked me why I was in the last bunch as he had already had he...

What is the best way of finding out who has a 1st aid certificate that is current? I can laminate the flow charts from the Australian Resuscitation Council and laminate them as visual aides.

It would be great for a number of people to have 1st aid knowledge. Regular review of the material makes it stay in the memory. In terms of liability for 1st aiders, my understanding is that they will be covered by the "Good Samaritan Act". This means that anyone offering help at the scene...

I could not see myself racing as D grade seemed much too fast and thought I would need a F grade, bypassing E as that would also be too fast if there was one! So a DHBC slowies grade, whate...

If you avoid the hills the scenery isn't as good and there will be more headwinds.
