Newsletter – October 11, 2018

As the season rolls to an end its time to reflect on all the good times as you prepare your awards applications. Information on how to do that can now be found on the website. A further opportunity to discuss tales from the road will occur on December 15 at the year end soiree. Details are yet to be announced, but keep the date free. Results from the Qld contingent to 2018 the Perth Albany Perth have been documented. Mark Harris offers a solution to that awkward situation which arises now and then, and there are some excellent ride reports for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.

The mild Spring weather has arrived and with it the adventures of The Castaways for your reading pleasure. I suspect the Castaways crew were a little surprised to see me heading in the other direction, but I was working on my Oppy preparations for next year. Right now the inquest for Mike Hall is underway with a fair amount of dark commentary from some quarters. Don’t forget that we are looking for hands to help man the sails, step right up if you can assist. And as usual, there is a swathe of epic rides on the horizon as well.

We need your help!! Check out below and if you can help, please get in touch. No new ride reports this fortnight so I’ve taken a look back over the figurative shoulder at 2016. John explains what its like to be a new RO and I’m still waffling on about drivetrain lubrication and gearing. Enjoy the ride.

Newsletter – August 30, 2018

In this final newsletter for August, I note the passing of Dario Pegoretti. In other news, the significant achievements of Brian and Jeff are noted, Paul and Anthony share some technical insights, the evolution of gravel bikes is worth checking out, there is an epic ride report/photo collage, more pictures from Thomas and probably a few things I forgot to mention as well. Check out the upcoming rides, and start thinking about your 2019 Oppy adventure now.

My thanks to everyone who contributed content, enjoy.

I’m pushing this one out a few days early on account of the Ekka holiday on Wednesday. Lots of interesting things to read this time round including some great ride reports and various tech items including bike pumps (I have a few it seems), and a report on what looks like an interesting chain lubricant.

Newsletter – July 12, 2018

This fortnight I am pleased to be able to share some sensational rides. Please take a look, I am sure you will find a couple you really need to attend. I’ve included some interesting tech from Eurobike which is worth a look. Will it become mainstream one day?

I’ve resisted making any comments about le Tour although inexplicably I am weary again much the same as every July. I should possibly see someone about that. Ruth Brown shares her account of the Goat Track Gambol, and I take a peek at what went on up on the tablelands. There is a some random light reading as well. Enjoy.
