The first week of September 2013 is done and dusted, while it should have been an exciting week where the sensational Spring weather prepares us for the summer that’s just around the corner; it wasn’t all that fantastic. In fact I’m sick of work place politics, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, I mean why cant people find something more constructive and productive to do with their multitudes of free time!..
  What happened to August...?
Posted:   31-08-2013, 21:56 by Dave

August was a month where a lot happened, Brad hit me up with the famed old saying; "dood, we’re doing the winter camp in August", and who was I to argue? I mean really; we were heading to a place I absolutely love, and grow even fonder of after each visit, Hill End...
  The Foil Fork arrived today
Posted:   15-07-2013, 21:38 by Dave

I pains me to write this, but these are the facts;
  1. It took 11 days to arrive.
  2. It cost me less.
  3. Locally I could not get an ETA.
  4. Locally to obtain an ETA I had to pay.
Considering the recent rapid decline of the Aussie dollar, the above does not make sense?..
  It’s been a long time since the last time

In the period between 16/6 and today; it’s been cold, the weather’s been bad, my bed has been warm, the Tour de France has resulted in late nights and I’ve been lazy! They are the main excuses as to why I haven’t ridden, I may be persuaded to find a few more, but that would make me seem rather soft...
  Late le Tour nights and rediscovery of the Philishave...

Just about every night is becoming a very late one watching the Tour de France, last night’s eighth stage in particular was an amazing finish for team Sky and as many are iterating very ’Armstrong-ish’. Sky were clinical in pace making and pushed the peleton to their limits as they travelled through two climbs from Castres to Ax-3-Domaines...
  A manic Monday

Today started out not as I had planned, slight sleep in getting up at 7.15am which was good but I just couldnt warm up, it felt like -10 degrees. I went downstairs ate some breakfast and had a coffee (every day is made better with coffee)...
  Eventful week

Its been one of those crazy, crazy weeks. Work has been absolutely nuts, I tore the ligament on my finger which led to missing out on the fishing season opening weekend. First time in over 5 years!..
  Spring is in the air

Spring is here, the weather is amazing and the magpies are swooping!
The weather around town has been fantastic, went for a 30k ride on Thursday, 30k on Friday and 40k today, I must admit the wind has been vicious, late afternoons are when its at its worst and the last 10k of todays ride was tough...
