Shop visit: Northside Wheelers

On Easter long weekend we popped to Melbourne for a lightning fast visit to see some amazing racing at the World Track Champs. But before we got to the action of the Velodrome we headed out to take a look at Northside Wheelers.

Sadly it was closed when we were there but these photos of the exterior of the store make it number one for places to visit on our next trip.

Bikes + Fabric = AWESOME

Being the big fabric nerd that I am I was so excited by this article that not only explained why Garmin riders during the Tour de France were sporting what appeared to be skin tight wet weather jerseys but also all the properties of the fabric!

Article from the Castelli blog here and thanks to The Englishman for the find.

Thank you to a stranger

Last week a total stranger was incredibly nice and even though I may never meet them and they may never read this I wanted to take the time to say thank you.

Last week in my rush to get put the door instead of putting my Road ID on my wrist I either attached it to my bag or put it in my bag thinking I’ll put that on once I make it onto the ferry (was riding to ferry then ride again on other side of the harbour).

I must have dropped it while purchasing my tickets as my boyfriend got a phone call from a stranger saying they had found my ID tag and wanted to get it back to me (he is the emergency contact number listed on the engraved tag).

Then later in the week I get my Road ID back in an envelope but sadly with no details so I can’t thank the kind stranger.

So thank you for taking the time to pick it up, call and post it to me it is very much appreciated.
