Met Rivale Helmet Review

I was in the market for a new helmet to replace my cheap, old one with ripped padding. The current trend of helmets are all leaning towards aerodynamic advantages, every manufacturer offers an “Aero Lid”.  The new helmets that I had shortlisted all contained some form of the newly advertised aerodynamic advantages.

City2Surf 2016 Race Report

It has been a while since I have posted a blog entry, mostly due to lack of time, time consumed by work, family and more training. City2Surf is a main event for Sydney, NSW, an iconic run from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach. The distance is 14Km but with some hills in the way, not easy to conquer.


2016 SMH Half Race Report

The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon is my first running race for the 2016 calendar. At the end of 2015 I decided to step up my running, but I had no idea about the best way to improve my time.

How to Replace Disc Brake Rotors

In this how to we will be looking at how to replace your disc brake rotor. After a long period of use, your rotor will be worn.

Sydney Striders - Homebush - FEB 2016

First run for Sydney Striders for 2016 is at Homebush, Olympic Park. This is a very close race to home but I've decided not to participate in this event due to "being soft", as some say, honest truth is that my legs were just too tired from a big week of running and I have plans to do some mountain bike training. Instead of going out and smashing myself for 10Km, I did the photo duty for the day, here are some of the photos from the run.
