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

Old Bicycle Life followers might recall that I started an annual challenge to myself two years back to bike my age in miles on or after my birthday (Where’s the challenge in that, some might ask? Just you wait, Alchemyrider and Tempocyclist!). I’m a few months late, but the first day of spring seemed like … Continue reading "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. After the last big ride 2-4 March, and then day surgery procedures on 8 March, it was only Thursday of this past week (15 March), that I … Continue reading "Plan B – March Ride 2 – Taking it easy (CLC Ride 2)"

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"

CLC18-D: Website ABC’s at the Albina Press

About the website First off, this post isn’t primarily about cycling – it’s about the website.  I biked to Albina Press for coffee and carbs though, so I’ll credit it as a CLC ride also.

CLC2018 Ride 2: Cycleway to Sweet Sassafras

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"
