    Haha, I started at the Burke rd bridge one day and before the Banksia st bridge I'd seen 3 snakes (ran over one) and then saw a guy on the ST who'd obviously been bitten in a very sensitive spot and some good Samaritan was sucking the poison out... I didn't even get to the bridge, just went home.

    eBikes - what's the current perspective

    Strava gets hacked anyway, one of my local climbs ( short, techy, windy, under branches, between trees, between houses...) has a KOM av speed of about 35 km/h. You couldn't do that on a dirt bike! its about half the time of the nearest rider. The segment at Chandler hwy steps going down has a...
