CLC #3 Ride- The Big Bypass as in Big Sur

Yesterday we loaded the bikes and headed down to Fort Hunter Liggett. The base is 180,000 acres once as large as 200,000 acres. The land was originally owned by William Randolph Hearst.

Cycle Life Challenge 3: Planes, trains and….camels and horses

Alas another gloomy day, about 25 celsius with some sunny breaks. I headed down the Zig Zag to see my friends at Kenwick who were involved in a horse dressage event. Kenny Wildhog is retiring with a golden handshake as his employer is rationalising its operations to Melbourne, a familiar story around WA at the … Continue reading "Cycle Life Challenge 3: Planes, trains and….camels and horses"

CLC 2018 Ride #8: Go Further West MAMIL

I’ve just read Emily’s latest posts.  The sights, sounds and smells along her ride routes are diametrically opposed to what I usually experience.  A definite downside to living in the centre of Kuala Lumpur (KL). Yesterday’s ride will look familiar to everyone who read CLC 2018 Ride #7:  Go West MAMIL.  That time I rode as … Continue reading "CLC 2018 Ride #8: Go Further West MAMIL"

Plan B – March Ride 3 – CLC Ride 3 – Lonesome Pine(s)

….I’m riding into a 10 kph northeasterly. The wind is light enough, though, that the farmers are all taking advantage of the conditions to burn off stubble. On the horizon in every direction are plumes of dark smoke or long lines of bluish haze. Where larger burns are taking place, a dark pink cloud hangs … Continue reading "Plan B – March Ride 3 – CLC Ride 3 – Lonesome Pine(s)"

CLC18-F: Biking my age in miles (3rd ed.)

Plan B – March Ride 2 – Taking it easy (CLC Ride 2)

It has become apparent that I cannot push myself very hard at all yet, or I end up feeling really crummy for extended periods after stressing my body.

CLC2018, Ride 2: Arrakis, also known as the planet Dune

On the planet Arrakis, among the endless dunes, I scan the horizon carefully before I set my thumper upon the surface of the sand and activate it. Instantly it begins the steady, rhythmic thump certain to attract a huge creature from beneath the sand sea. I tighten my grip on the rope and remind myself … Continue reading "CLC2018, Ride 2: Arrakis, also known as the planet Dune"

Following alongside the now-disused railway track, the Hobart Innercity Cycleway makes for a great car-free cycle from the waterfront along the Derwent River up to Claremont and back. From my office, it’s a relatively flat 32km (~20 mile) return trip of wide and smooth purpose built concrete path. Sunrises and cycles. Repping in my Woking CC … Continue reading "CLC2018 Ride 2: Cycleway to Sweet Sassafras"

Sacramento, capital of the Independent Republic of California

Last year I rode from Winters to Davis, but I haven’t bicycled in Sacramento since Jeff and I pedaled the American River Parkway in 2015, and I’ve never biked the stretch from Davis to Sacramento, including the path on the Interstate 80 causeway. Just for the heck of it, I decided to fill in that … Continue reading "Sacramento, capital of the Independent Republic of California"
