Re: Sydney Tweed Ride 2010 this Sundee

Tweed is what you want to be wearing in Sydney right now. It's thick wool, so it's pretty warm and toasty, if a bit heavy for riding in. My favourite is Harris tweed for obvious reasons. I wear my Harris tweed jacket to work on days like today. haven't worn it on a bike, but may probably ride the t...

Re: Sydney Tweed Ride 2010 this Sundee

Hi Toff The ride was cool. About 140 riders and heaps of vintage bikes. But the hippsters were up to something sneaky there. I was shocked to find all of them dressed like middle class pomies from a century ago. If I wouldn't have been there, they would have made Sydney look like ancient UK. http://...

Re: Following Hannibal...on a bicycle

I've told him he has to get the BBC to fund them to ride the route of Alexander the Great's conquests. There may be a few OH&S issues, what with those pesky mujahadeen. I would be so into that as a ride!!!!! Me too... my language skills may come handy when negotiating with the pesky mujahedeen.

Re: Long ride with overnight stay on next long weekend.

Brian, after half marathon in the morning, I will be doing it as a recovery ride, averaging around 30kph. Is it a good pace for you? Thinking of staying at some backpacker place... just to crash for the night :-)

Long ride with overnight stay on next long weekend.

On next Sunday I intend to go on a long ride (100 to 120km), to a place away from Sydney and stay overnight (Blue Mountains? New Castle? Hunter Valley? Kiama? ... the direction doesn't matter). Then return on Monday. I will be leaving on Sunday mid day (racing a half marathon in the morning). Flexib...

Re: Ken Dinnerville 2010 race entries open

RFIDs are usually proximity sensitive. ie they're not focused. I expect that just standing next to it would allow it to detect your presence. For the identical electromagnetic pattern along the length of the finishing mat, it'd be good enough for ID tags all coming in from the same direction, at th...
