Re: Centennial Park Update: 30kph limit 09:00-16:30 ENFORCED

Back in the 80's (at Centennial) I had one friend break his neck, another made a quadraplegic (she died a few years later) and another break his elbow so badly it was crippled - all caused by unleashed dogs which were EVERYWHERE. Added to that at the time there was an in-line skating obsession and t...

They used to have a trad Jaz band on Sat arvo in the 80's! Then thru the back of the cross via Elizabeth Bay House to Paddington and a drink at the Lord Dud...

Great ride. The views were spectacular. I think there were a couple of gratuitous hills in the route, but the pain was soon over. I hope you remember the way for next week Eleri, 'cos I don't! Maybe Adrian could do a bikely route or suchlike.... :D

Yes, a smooth transition obviates the need to call. Also, people sometimes think that if they've called, then it's ok to push back... like 'I warned you, dude!'

Re: Waterfall ride: Middies vs Fasties

One of the tricks with the cleats/traffic lights is (when stopping) to not set the gears more than a couple of clicks down from what you were riding at. One click is best. No clicks is better. That way, when you start up the pedal is moving quite slowly to your relative speed and you have more time ...

Very true Weiyun, the technology is so much better these days as well.

Re: Brake technique

In my humble opinion, the most important thing is to constantly and mindfully practice braking with a dominant left hand. I think the Europeans have got it right by having the front brake in the left hand.
