One would think the goal of an Australian cycling tourist would be to ride along the coastal trails of Australia, see some surfers whilst enjoying a peaceful trail and some ocean breezes. To help you be the first, here are a list of trails that are over 15km long one way that mainly showcase beaches […]
Do you read my posts and keep thinking, I wish I was riding a bicycle? Or do you wish your best friend would come and ride with you on that great country trail. Share your story or ask the simple questions on my new private Facebook group. Now with nearly 500 members. Lets go […]
In January of 2016 I hired a bike, rode to Bruthen, stayed at the pub, ate at the fabulous Bull Ant Brewery and rode back to Bairnsdale the next day. It was a hot ride but I totally enjoyed the solitude and the break at the river at Nicholson. The section from Nicholson to Bruthen […]
Here is a map called a heat map of everything I have ridden and recorded in PUBLIC or friends mode in Strava https://www.strava.com/athletes/me Here is the Strava view of where sydney cyclists who use Strava go >> I like the Red mode with cycling only turned on. See the Legend in the map.
Want to try something different, ride every path in your nearest bicycle park. The rules are simple, follow the road rules or path rules, if its one way, you have to go that way. The challenge is to do it in the least distance and not the least time. Best if you don’t study the […]
You can ride your bike fast, you can commute or you can just explore. Lets explore one of the great inner city areas of Sydney on a trail that I call the Wilson St Loop. The ride starts at Redfern station, heads around towards Sydney university on the very popular Wilson St cycleway down towards […]
The new world of Covid-19 is a massive one two punch to many things the giant City of Sydney held dear. Huge numbers of people are unemployed (25% including Job Keepers). We have no tourists, no cruise ships, no flying machines, no sitting at cafes and no sport to watch. I wont go on. Here […]
A few weeks ago I setup a new Private Facebook group call Lets Go Cycling The purpose of the group is to encourage people to go cycling or to help them find places on a bicycle. In other-words, cycling stories, maps and just happy cycling photos. Anyone can contribute, its quite a lively group and […]
Under Australian lock-down laws, you are allowed out for exercise and you are allowed to travel to work. So I took my son to work in the city for his first day at an exercise physio clinic. And then I found a great car park in Pyrmont (it was early) and went to check out […]
Most of the readers of this blog will either be house bound or doing some important job that the rest of us really admire. So its time to just churn out a bunch of Screen Savers so you can see the real world even lying on the couch. First up we have the Queen of […]
Everyone in the world needs to sit on the couch. That’s pretty easy. Now you need to exercise. So turn on your Strava and make a map that looks like this. That was easy. Do it NOW Sears house and description here.
Cyclists are always aware of people, bikes and cars. We understand safe space. Tell your friends to keep a distance at all times, think of it as riding a bike. Would you ever intentionally stay close to others. Tell your family and friends – DON’T JOIN A CROWD TILL THIS CV19 IS OVER
In April we were going on a Barge trip from Amsterdam to Bruges. That ain’t happening for pretty obvious reasons. So now I am going to pass on some of the cycling links that I came across apart from the Barge cruise. Dutch day trips or Tulip Tours or one big Tulip Tour In Germany […]
Almost a year ago I explored Harrington and Oran Parks, two suburbs in the south western extremities of Sydney. Both have a pretty decent collection of shared paths. Oran Park streets are named after all the greats of the car world inc Peter Brook drive and Skaife Street and The Straight. Enjoy, the whole area […]
With some decent work being undertaken on the Pittwater Rd shared path in the Lane Cove region, this gives me a chance to show some of my favourite photos that I took riding the very hilly Huntleys Cove to North Ryde “about to get better” bike trail. First up here is what is going on […]
