Hi all

This weeks post is a mix of some new topics, traditional Wed Legs pictures and some random pictures that I have found interesting on my surfing over this past week.


Bike Tribes

Thanks to those who have responded to my emailed question about bike tribes. The list is slowly building up.  There are definitely some hard core cyclists out there.

I’d appreciate further feedback before I pull the list together. For those not on the distribution list and you’d like to share the bike tribe you belong to, please forward via the comments link on this blog any details such as where, when, size, favorite routes, group makeup, blog address etc

How to Lube your Bike  – Gnar Lube

Some may think that cleaning and lubing your bike is as simple as using a bit of degreaser and lube in the back shed.  Not so. To look after your investment you need to be more picky about the lube and the way you apply it.

Take note.

Gnar Lube.
