Re: No shortage of bike racks at Barangaroo

Thank Clover and her planning regs! Permanent lockers are always tricky. People grab them but then barely use them. We had a similar problem at Mirvac. At our building at 420 George St, we can have a locker from Monday to Friday and then need to clear it out. Just takes some logistical management.

I won't comment on the ability to convert (I believe it can be done) but do you mind if I ask why you would put 5 year old wheels on your brand new bike?

Sounds great! Wouldn't miss it so see you there...

We'll be sorry to see you go but hopefully we'll be able to come see you in Townsville for some riding.

Re: She Trains! Women only rides in Sydney...

Women's ride is on again tomorrow. 530 from the Post Cafe or 6am from the Randwick Gates.

We go the Slowies route so I can also pick you up on the way.

New riders are welcome and encouraged!

I did also notice the absence of the 'two light' debate Anthony. But they are testing the individual lights on their merit and for my mind, being seen is more important commuting in Sydney. Which is not to say that 'seeing' is not important but I think most of these lights would do that reasonably w...

Re: Strava: Go Local

A few Tweets later and I have been advised to change the language from 'English (US)' to 'British English' as that should default everything to km and m.

And it has!

Clearly English has to be specified as 'British' lest we confuse those poor Americans.

Has anyone noticed the new 'Local' guide on Strava? I've had a look through and it's a great tool. Especially if you travel for work etc. or even looking for new rides and runs around the city.

Re: WTB: Garmin 500 or 510 with HRM and spd/cadence sensor

There are HEAPS of new models on the pipeline. Check out DC Rainmaker.

Alternatively, if you want to save a few $$ and are happy with second hand head to Bicycle Market on Facebook. So many people are upgrading and onselling their old models that you'll find a good deal.

Great result Bro! I think you should all be proud of racing in such tough conditions.

I think you'll find that our most dominating female rider, Amy Vesty, was racing in Cootamundra. And beating some of the boys.
