Hello Winter

Posted by Team PEDALIT on


Hello winter, we are about to be reacquainted. Each year, as we are about to meet, I’m always stuck in two minds. Should I leap forward to embrace you, or retreat and hide under the blankets until you have gone. One of the great things about living in a place like Albury is the seasons. A spring that delivers on expectations, a summer that has you ducking for cover in the middle of the day, an autumn that delights with colourful reflection and of course, a rideable, if not at least, "fresh" winter. We are very fortunate living where we live down under, NZ and Australia enjoy a mild winter. Some of us get days that have us retreating to the...

I started this cycling thing.. To become the exception.

Posted by Team PEDALIT on


I don't know where you all came from, your journey to becoming a cyclist, or what your turning point was. I am though, very happy you are here. You have made cycling down under awesome, and together we are on a journey. To become the rule, not the exception. Just over 35 years ago I went for my first bike ride, not to the shops or school, but a ride with serious intent. A 10km circuit of rolling terrain in the west of Auckland.

To ride as fast as I could. There was no Strava, power or heart rate, just shorts,...

The Art of the Paceline

Posted by Team PEDALIT on


It doesn’t matter what form of cycling is your thing, at some stage, whether by good planning or by good fortune, you will find yourself in a paceline, a group of riders, well… riding fast. There is nothing more intoxicating in the cycling world than to find yourself amongst riders of similar ability, strung out and battling for status from strangers brought together by a loose common cause. Whether charging towards an imaginary finish line, or looking for that moment you feel you have achieved the sense of a victory. Every town has them, the drag strip where riders form unorganised groups on the road, to structured training group rides at speed, to the club criterium or race. From the...

Language of Cycling

Posted by Team PEDALIT on


By Paul Ingwersen While there is now a steady supply of T shirts, branded items and new cycling terms coined regularly such as Cycology, it is time take look around at a couple of classic cycling phrases. Like every sub culture cycling has its own language.  In performing arts you might say to break a leg or chookas before a show, something that probably many who use the phrase don’t even know the origin of, but it is the culture. In cycling there are the practical phrases with real meaning like half wheeling, riding up the road, taking a turn, or sitting in.  There is also some of the more descriptive language which brings riding to life.  Here are a...
