I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
I cycled to Victoria Park, very windy, gusts to 60 km/h. This part of the harbour had ice a few days ago.
I then cycled the trail from Grafton St to the bypass highway. This section is west of the Kensington road and almost like summer conditions. Temperature was around -2. By the time I got home the wind was only gusting to 40 km/h.
