Dear all,

Folk who know me very well, know that I’m quite a bicycling zealot, that during the early eighties I formed a bicycling club, which, since then, later transformed into The Port Macquarie Cycle Club, based in Port Macquarie, NSW, and that I was, at one time, also the national Secretary, the now extinct, Bicycle Federation of Australia.

Bicycling is a great way to get around, doesn’t cost much, and is physically, mentally, and socially, healthy. Make sure you ride safe. Wear brightly colored and reflective clothing, avoid riding in the car door lane, use front and rear flashing lights at night, and wear an approved helmet. The latter, in addition to protecting the head, also useful for repealing those occasional magpie attacks here in Oz we get, and very handy to attach an extra light or two: -)
