I like this as it only takes 1 ride to count and is based on a % of staff participating rather than number of km's traveled (though they include that too).

So it will hopefully add more of an incentive to just ride a bike, rather than trying to break any distance records.

9510km for me. More than I thought.

Not quite as many as 2013 where I cracked the 10,000 but hoping to get out of bed more often this year.

Re: Tour Down Under 2015

Fantastic look itinerary Dougie. Wish I was going though in current form I'm not sure I'd think it was a good idea halfway up Willunga.

Enjoy everyone! Will be a cracker.

Re: How many kilometres did you ride in 2014?

8479 for me. Less than last year where I cracked 10,000. I thought doing an Ironman the km's would climb with all the training but I didn't factor in the 6 weeks off after it!

Re: Bib Shorts

Santini? I've bought a few pairs at the TDU of ex defunct pro teams etc. for about $20 each and they're almost the best shorts I own.

The best I DO own though are the Specialized Lululemon ones that Eleri and I wear. Oh, and Vanderkitten. Both of which I bet you'd LOVE to be seen in.

For those on Twitter and Instagram, the Daily Telegraph is running a campaign to #snapsydney and have the photo go into a time capsule.

The suggestion has been made to post as many cycling related/bike path photos as possible with #snapsydney and #saveourcycleways hashtag.

Karzie, are you suggesting that motorists who hit cyclists don't seem to be able to be sued for negligence? Instead tend to get a slap on the wrist and a small fine?
