Au Revoir, rather than farewell

Well, I could get maudlin about going, dwell on the uncertainties of the future or some of the challenges to come, or I could reflect on the last two years.

I arrived on my own in Adelaide in June 2009, having never set foot in SA, or ridden anything over 40kms.

Over a period of time, my family arrived and we settled in to life in SA: bought a road bike, did some kms, got used to the heat, applied to enter the MCCT.

Hooked. Couldn't wipe the smile off my face all week,…

Awwww crap, I feel another project coming on....no idea what I am going to do with it - original paint? Stealth Black? Tubs? SRAM Apex hill crawler? Italian? Who knows.....if I could, would have bought two and had one black hillster and one white hipster........for all you Dave MacKenzie fans out there, here is some history, first publically funded go at an Aussie team: iteam-Nova.

Oh bummer! Best of luck in QLD. I arrived in SA on July 4 four years ago!


Are you in Brisbane? I'll introduce you to Damien McLennan who started Sydney, Melb and now Bris cyclist. He loves riding in Brisbane. He's @damienm on Twitter.


Best of luck and stay in touch.

Hi David Peter J can meet us in Stirling at 7am for some hills torture if you are interested... If you want we can either ride there and leave here early or I can drive us up to him.. Which would mean we would get back to our families quicker. He said he has a hill almost as bad as checkers.....

David, I thought pancakes would be cooked on a griddle, rather than a girdle.
