Back on the bike

Ride2Word, a photo by AndrewGills on Flickr. I’m back on the bike. Both literally and figuratively. I saddled up this morning for a leisurely ride to work. Today I’ll be in the office all day earning enough money for my next adventures. It’s Friday. I think perhaps having half my face go numb was a […]

First commute on my new bike

Vivente World Randonneur with Bike Bag Dude kit, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. Like a kid on Christmas morning, I jumped out of bed and was ready for work in record time. I loaded my clothes into my Bike Bag Dude bar roll and my lunch into my Oveja Negra seat post bag, which […]

Loving being a cycle commuter

Commuter, a photo by AndrewGills on Flickr. I used to be a cycle commuter. That was many years ago. Then I let it slide. I got lazy. I use the guy who tried to pull me off my bike, the guy with the hockey stick, the broken toe when I got doored and the day […]

On my commute

On my commute, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. What’s not to like about riding through these surrounds. Best way to start the day. Total: 20.8km cycle commute + ride home.

The final commute of 2013

The final commute of 2013, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. Well, that’s it. The 2013 working year is almost over for me. After today I am on holidays for two weeks. That’s two weeks of cycling, bike building and time with family. I am sure the time will pass too quickly and that, come […]

Enjoying the long days

Commuting with takeaway curry in the seat post bag, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. The days are long here in Brisbane right now. Well, long by our standards. The sun is up at 4:30am and doesn’t go to bed until about 6:30pm, with dusk extending to about 6:45pm. It’s glorious to be able to […]

My commute

My commute, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. I’ve been commuting by bicycle 3-4 days a week for the past month or so. It’s a lovely 12-14km ride each way, depending on which roads I follow. It’s easy for me to add an extra 30-40km by riding other local roads. Today I rode my 29er […]

A quiet week

“Rock” climbing, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. While I had hoped to log some bigger mileage on my bike this week, circumstances have led to it being a quiet one. But it’s been enjoyable all the same. Yesterday I rode my mountain bike to and from work. At just 12-13km each way, it’s easy […]

A circuitous ride to work

Exploring on my roadie, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. Gravel crunches under my tyres. Despite being local to my home, I have never before ridden this short gravel road between the vegetable farms. At it’s end I reach the bitumen again on Lagoon Road where my riding along scares some goats grazing in a […]

Riding the Seven Sisters

Riding the Seven Sisters, a photo by andrewgillsag on Flickr. I joined the lycra brigade today on my spin to and from work. I went the long way this morning, cruising up and over the Seven Sisters before battling the wind along the Logan River flood plains. On my way home, I got out of […]
