Clarence st cup 8th Nov 2014

Arrived at the Senior's Clarence st Cup to find plenty of DHBC juniors wrapping up their riding and leaving, looked for the DHBC seniors and didn't find any, it seemed that I was the only Senior DHBC rider. Find this a bit surprising, considering the number of DHBC riders involved at club level raci...

Re: Adventure Ride - Windsor - November Sunday 23

Is that 100k or 160k? IMO 160k is too far for an inclusive Adventure Ride i.e. too far for me. There's 2 Windsor routes; 1. the long one that goes via Wisemans and is more than 160k off memory. The early part of the ride is hard, going over north side hills. From Wisemans its fairly easy following ...

Fixing flex in plastic soled bike shoes

I've heard a theory that the nylon in plastic soled shoes doesn't actually break down but what happens is that it gets impregnated with water and its this moisture that causes the increased flex. The solution being is to heat them in an oven at 60degC to dry out the moisture. Does someone want to pu...

My experience is that they will take a few bikes. We would probably have to be a max of 2 per bus at a guess.

Another option is to ride from Liverpool station
