I am a happy cyclist. Are you a happy driver?

Posted in - Cycle Perth & Healthy life on September 16th 2017 0 Comments Road-cyclist

I cycle to be happy whether it be on the mountain bike along less travelled dirt trails or the road bike on well travelled roads with vehicles of all sorts. I’m not on the road to cause drama, I stick as far left as I possibility can past the painted lines, however sometimes the left of the …

Posted in - Cycle Friendly Cafes & Cycle Perth & Healthy life & Microadventure Perth & Travelling Me on July 15th 2016 2 Comments Jacobs-Ladder

Knowing this small fact makes the winter months a whole lot more fun and keeps us busy to say the least.  Lately, I’ve …

Setting out on a morning city cycle we were semi confident we would miss the storm predicted for later in the day,  consequently the much loved Perth Christmas Pageant was cancelled. Ever since the great storm of 2010, storms are taken seriously, but only really occur 50% of the forecasted time. So the weather was pretty good …
