Off the bike

Posted on June 18, 2011 at 17:11 11 Comments

No riding this weekend after pulling some muscles in my back. Had an adjustment at my Chiropractor this morning, but he told me to rest up.

I don't know what's worse the back pain or the pain of not being able to ride?

Anyway I'm planning to go watch some of the PACC riders at Mt Pleasant on Sunday.

Auntie Doll

Posted on June 10, 2011 at 13:53 11 Comments

Got some sad news today my Great Auntie Doll (Dorothy) died at 10.10am this morning at the age of 89. While we knew her time was near it is still a sad occasion as she was the Matriarch of the family. She was also very special to me as the way she lived her life was an inspiration to me with the love and the care she showed to everyone she knew. Many of what I believe are my good qualities I gained from her.

My Cousin (her Daughter) who was with her when she died said she passed away…


Public Holiday

Posted on March 14, 2011 at 10:03 8 Comments

Today I rode to work on the Adelaide Cup Public Holiday. It was great to ride down Payneham Road with hardly a car in sight. Didn't see a single bus there were no near misses or people yelling abuse at me because I dared to ride a my bike our their road. I wish everyday could be like this. I even did the 11kms in about 18 minutes without really trying.

Red Light Runner

Posted on December 20, 2010 at 13:06 20 Comments

Today Monday 20DEC I was crossing King William St at Rundle Mall with the pedestrian lights when a cyclist rode through a red light weaving through the pedestrians. I said him "hey you've got a red light mate", to which he just ignored me and kept on riding. It is idiots like this that give us law abiding cyclists a bad name.

Hi Mark

Did you make the most of the sunny weather this afternoon?  I spoke to Rosie yesterday and told her that until third term break Saturday mornings are a no go for me as I have BSF commitments during term.  The GW ride will have to wait until then.  Have you registered for the TDU next January? Michael

Hi Mark

This friend request is unexpected - well thank you :-)
Though your comments have been critical of my view i don't mind that anymore. I am sure other people would wish to ask the same. A fair question is an opportunity to explain something more and that it is not always a negative.

Cheers Steve

Copies of the free booklets as well as important contacts fridge magnets are available from our office, or just call and we can post them out to you . . . If you or someone you know is suffering from depression or anxiety, do not ignore it, contact Beyondblue today for a confidential chat on 1300 22 4636.

Hi Mark,

Welcome to Vote For Cyclists. A very active group during the last local council elections, and probably when the next state or federal elections. Still useful to post info because some of the members are now on local councils.

Cheers, Heather
