Sydney Tweed Ride

The Sydney Tweed Ride looks like a fun event. I haven't heard about Tweed Rides / Runs before.  Apparently it all started in London 2009 as The Tweed Run London. The organizers thought that it would be fun to have a slower-paced “cosmopolitain ride with a bit style”. Dressed in tweeds they rode through London and raised money for the charity Bikes 4 Africa.

Not one bit of Tweed in my closet - so I'd better go shopping.

Bikes come alive

Wow, just found this video at MC Cyclery.  This took a lot of effort and is a definite must see.

Angkor Wat Bike for Kidds

Entry for the Angkor Wat Bike Race and Ride is now open. I attended this event last year, and it was fantastic. Seeing the temples is amazing, something everyone should try to do, but riding amongst the temples is even better. If you do head out, be prepared for a bumpy ride. And the ride is for a great Charity too, Village Focus International.

Here are some photos I took:

It's all about the bike

Watch this video from Robert Penn promoting his new book "It's All About the Bike - The Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels ". This guy certainly understands the joy of cycling. I definitely want to get a copy.
