There’s a video embedded in one of his posts about cycling up Baldwin Street, steepest street in the world

Great way to kick things off! :D

Cool to see a few hanggliders around still, they're practically extinct in most parts now.

Great shots Squashed. I'm very keen to ride Crown Range and a cycling mate is moving to Queenstown so it might happen before long 8) :thumbup: :beerchug:

Not as glam as others but here are a couple of shots of today's ride (well, sheltering from the 30C heat while smoothie loading) plus one from yesterday's long grass mtb in the fog.

EDIT: Fixed picture sizes (were thumbnail only before):

First day back at work for the year today. Decided to at least make the ride in fun!

Took a nice dirty route to work this morning involving 10km of gravel/single track from Mt Osmond down to Adelide for work. Great way to start the day.

Today is a little cooler - only 31 degrees, whilst yesterday was 41 !! Celcius that is ....

Views from Mt Osmond down into Adelaide - Old Bullock Track and Pioneer Womens Trail.
