Bicycle Maintenance & upcoming running events



Pedal Power Bike Maintenance Courses
The next beginner's course is 10am-2pm Sunday 30 May and you will learn how to remove your rear and front wheels and fix your punctures, right now mostly caused by those horrible thorns...


...that are responsible for multiple tyre punctures - and which get stuck in your dog's paws -
that come from the noxious weed Tribulus terrestris commonly known as puncture weed.


I'll be at the Bike Maintenance Intermediate course, having thoroughly enjoyed Beginners I & II :)
With the Anzac Day weekend, Canberra Road Running Festival and the ABS Fun Run (aka Castles Shield) all coming up I won't ask if anyone's up for Fitz's challenge right now... will keep you posted!


ABS Fun Run? http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/D3310114.nsf/home/ABS%20Fun%20Run Either 7.3km run or a 6km walk on Wednesday lunchtime 19 May 2010 around Lake Ginninderra - A reminder that the ABS run lunch time Lake Ginninderra handicap on the last Tuesday of every month (That'll be Tuesday 27 April) which is a great training opportunity for anyone who can make it. Staggered starts according to your run pace with slowest runners starting at 12.10pm for everyone to finish at 1pm. Gold coin donation to enter (proceeds go to Cancer Council). Meet at the wall below Bella Vista Restaurant. Being statisticians, they keep records of everyone's run times.

The 5km run on Sat. 1 May as part of the Canberra Road Running Festival is another great training opportunity - it's quite different running on your own to running with a large group of enthusiastic people!
