Okay, there is a never-ending list of things that could be added to one's bike - and I am at the stage where the 'essential' items such as bell and bottle holder are firmly in place, and now it's getting the bling and pimping at max level. I know, I know, there'll come a time when I'll start ripping it all down to the elemental framework again, but it's not now.
Helen and I attended a meeting of CAA (Cycle Action Auckland http://www.caa.org.nz/) last night, and enjoyed meeting some other enthusiasts of much longer standing then we. Or should I say, much longer peddling than we. We learned a number of new things to do with safety on our roads, and how to get the right bike fit for you. Met some very nice keen folk, who are much leaner than I. Most had arrived by bicycle, and we skulked out to our car, with two children in tow, clutching a cornucopia of pamphlets and useful things like a spacemaker flag (see below)
and I have attempted, this morning, to understand not only 1) how to put together a bike computer (so that we can gauge how far we are getting on our adventures) but 2) how to set it up with the right calculations and basic input. So far, no good. Watch this space.
