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 […]
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 […]
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.

There’s been some cracking rides the past few weeks. In particular the FNQ 600 which provided entertainment for days for the 4 hardy souls who signed up. You can read more about that below. I attempted the Bedrock and maintained my 100% fail rate. Leonie Lucas tackled the BVRT and of course the Fassifern Folly […]
Another busy couple of weeks with lots going on. In the recent Downs and Back ride, Brian reported “All 9 riders completed the course. For 5 of the riders this was their first 600 km they have completed.“ Sensational effort. The Eight Tablelands Towns event attracted 110 riders… which is an amazing effort on the […]
