New Space ....

It seems I have neglected my blog for some time whilst I have been flirting with Instagram but now it is time to share the love between them both.

So just to keep everyone in the loop I am moving Northside Wheelers into a new space ..... 6a Wilson Street South Yarra ( the old Fyxo space )
I am really looking forward to the move into bigger premises and working with Dan from Shifter Bikes on some shared projects
Thanks to everyone who has supported me and my little shop and I hope to see you down at the new space .
Cheers

Amy's Gran Fondo

Pretty glad I put myself down for this event , normally it's not my cup o tea doing these mass participation events ......but I had a ball .
So well organized and with over 4000 cyclists that is no mean feat
If you have not done this event I suggest you put it in your calendar for next year.
To get to ride the Great Ocean Road whilst being closed to traffic is amazing .

Viva La Vuelta !!

At a quarter to eight on the morning of Monday,29th April 1935 the Mayor of Madrid raised his green flag,and the peloton of more than 50 cyclists rode away from the Puerta de Atoche through the streets of the city in front of a cheering crowd of thousands.

Ahead of them lay 3,425 KM that would take them on a clockwise journey around Spain to end back in the capital 17 days later.

It was a bare three months since Juan Pujol,the director of the Madrid daily Informaciones, had announced that his paper would be promoting and organizing the first Vuelta a Espana.

The Amstel Gold Race

Without the orange Amstel, the world of the classics would be incomplete.
Though Holland's great race took many years to find its proper place and course,it now leads off Ardennes Week in April.
