  1. What an amazing stage. Sat glued to our TV exhorting Haussler to stick to the front group. Down once, back up and got back on only to floor it in a roundabout and lose 13 minutes in the last 18k. Massive respect and chapeau to all the riders. 47k average … »

  1. @Mikael Liddy if I’d been in the V-kit the bus would have ended up face down in the gutter not me. Pissed off that we had to get back to Melbourne for work so missed Cuddles brilliance on the Corkscrew today. Robbie called it when he got onto the big cog … »

  2. @Mikael Liddy thanks, survived today’s ride Along your beach road. Back to Vic tomorrow. »

  3. Not my FRB but we arrived in Adelaide yesterday  to watch Cuddles go round in The Tour DownUnder.   A Decade ago my wife and I came to Adelaide cos we’d heard what a great and safe place to ride it was – and she got hit by a car ten metres after we starte… »

  1. Wearing my Velominati top on Beach Rd recently I was caning it at the front of a small group thru Sandringham, Brighton and Elwood. Ensuring I stayed at the front, my stroke constant, not looking around, timing  traffic lights to perfection. My heart and … »

  1. Yep, sorry North American & Euro-Velominatii, but you fuckers know nothing of flies or other fucker insects. Riding in summer down here in Oz, north winds, 40 degrees and every mutation of big fat fly hitting you in the face as you hump it into a head… »

The early eighties saw the tide change in the European Peloton. Components were taking on a new, curvy shape as they left their boxy forms behind. The glint of toe clips in the sun would become a rarer sight as the move towards clipless pedals would take hold in 1985. English speakers were winning the big races classically won by continental Pros.T...

  2. @paolo valid points indeed. for me di2 is new, shiny and good. Like the first time I got carbon clinchers, a carbon frame or sti. It adds to the ride not detracts. Doesn’t mean non-users are Luddites, just different perspectives on what makes a ride quali… »

  3. @ChrisO I’ve got mechanical gears as well…on my tri-bike. »

  4. @ChrisO good point. Will replace immediately. »

  5. @ChrisO I’ve been using di2 for about 8 months. 100% reliable and the comparison of time needed to be spent on maintenance  compared to mechanical is stark. Apart from a monthly recharge, done more as precaution than need,  there is zero necessity to tune… »

  1. @Daccordi Rider Difficult to tell as they are covered by the afore mentioned quick-tie laden helmet. But I hazard a guess they’d be funking awful. »

  2. @ChrisO Yep, thought it might be an Australia only phenomenon. Thankfully our Magpies are vindictive fuckers so seem to target these knob-ends fairly well despite  the apparently deadly spears of thin plastic protruding from the helmet. »

  3. Beach Rd, Melbourne, Australia. YJA, MTB shoes, business socks, unshaven legs, non invited drafting, quick-ties looped through helmet to ward off magpies, non-cycling sunglasses, Shimano Tiagro group set on a budget priced Giant. Chapeau to you for gettin… »

The simple art of riding a bicycle can be undertaken in many ways. Watching the stylish commuters of Amsterdam going about their business in the most Casually Deliberate way makes you wonder if indeed anyone is actually going about any business at all. I don’t know how anything ever gets done in that city; everyone seems to be on their way to...

  1. Gaudin was quality in Paris-Roubaix. To relieve the drudgery of a long ride on Beach Rd here in Melbourne my training partner and I will sometimes pass each other faux rogering an invisible lass on our bikes. Gaudin looks likes he’s both fucking and being… »
