  1. Bike Cleaning/Maintenance

    Photo of you in the shower with your bike, or it didn't happen. You can't fit a bike in the shower!
  2. Old Ironman medals

    Still waiting for AP to post a picture of himself with his Ironman medals, Michael Phelps style.
  3. The Hollywood Abuse Scandals

    Ahh, that Humphrey B. Bear. He's a funny old fellow...
  4. Quadruple channel crossing

    One lap down, only 3 to go. Go Chloe!
  5. Alp D'Huez Long Course Triathlon

    I love it. I cannot imagine how sausage would sit in the stomach. My body would throw it up.
  6. City Joggers are Rude

    I have seen a few discourteous runners on the city streets/footpaths but this guy certainly goes above and beyond. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-08-09/cctv-shows-jogger-push-woman-in-front-of-london-bus/8788278
  7. Proud Dad moment

    A couple of months ago my daughter finally got the hang of riding a pedal bike. She was 7 years and 2 months old. I am a failure as a father.
  8. Superleague Triathlon LIVE

    Will be an interesting format to see the athletes trying to stay in the back of the pack in order to progress to the next round. Think they may have stuffed up the wording; but you gotta play by the rules.
  9. The 10,000 step farce

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/health/2017-05-17/10000-steps-is-it-enough/8532768 Looks like you're gonna need 15,000 steps just to get some benefit.
  10. Shimano Synchro Shifting. The ins and outs

    Sometimes I still move my knee out wide when changing gears. An instinct from many years ago when changing gears meant reaching down to the downtube to adjust the shifter. Triathlon was much harder in the old days.
  11. Indian Pacific Wheel Race (IPWR)

    Dot watching Like in this article I became a little obsessive watching the dots on the tracker. Always wondering why they weren't moving,were they sleeping, or eating? I was amazed they could ride for so long with so little sleep.
  12. Rottnest Channel Swim

    Jarrod Poort's effort in 10km open water swim at Rio was my highlight of last years Olympics. He showed a lot of guts to lead the field solo for the whole race bar the last 800 metres where he got swamped by the pack. You knew he would get caught but just kept hoping it would be something special... So close.
  13. Investing Kids Money

    I don't think a kids swing is a good investment. The child may fall off and injure themselves badly.

    My other half is wanting to see this movie. You are scaring me off. If it is like that other award winning movie "Birdman" I don't want to see it. Watched Birdman, just waiting for the big event to occur; nothing happened, movie ended.
  15. Power, Speed, Gradient and Kilograms

    Pete, I can't believe you forgot to factor in barometric pressure.
