The Walk against Warming is on again this year and I'm hoping to pull a team of riders together to go along and fly the flag for SBAR. Let me know if you'd like to join us.

Spring Cycle 2006

Despite chilly temperatures and the threat of rain the SBAR team managed to field ten riders for this year's Spring Cycle.
I made some posters for Big Red so the other cyclists would know where we were from. I heard lots of them read it out loud so the message was getting across. I did a live cross to Triple J from the Rhodes rest stop so it was a good promotional effort for SBAR.
We met some nice bicycle police.

On the way home in the train Katherine was reading the Sun Herald and found this article on page two! Bonus! Every cyclist who participated today was given a copy of this paper so thousands of Sydney riders would have read about the Sydney Body Art Ride.

Paradise on wheels

I wonder if these people realise they are living in Velo-paradise? My favourite is the guy who is riding along whilst writing a text message.

And I love the way cycling is considered such a standard form of transport that even the lycra set don't wear helmets.
