Simple pleasures: butter, coffee and catch ups with friends. 🥳 So lovely to see you @tweetlorikeet. Thanks for documenting this most excellent croissant!
📝 "Curved edges, firm but not-too-firm padding and comfort for a range of riding postures makes Bontrager Ajna saddle one to try if you’re struggling with the narrower sweet spot on others." · Hit my bio link for a long term review on the @ridebontrager Ajna Pro Carbon Saddle. · I've been using this one for more than two years now, and have struggled to find similar comfort with others. I wanted to share some words in case they resonate with other riders having similar problems.Thanks to @trekbikesau for providing a new one for comparison. · Saddles are personal, but knowing what to look for in one that fits is always a huge help, as is a savvy bike fit (eternal thanks @velofixrozelle). 🙌
"...This research, which has recently returned from its first European tour, challenges interdisciplinary scholars with a shared interest in cognition and movement to think with their bodies as well as their minds..." · Excited to present some work on mountain biking, anticipation and riding into the great unknown at the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, University of Sydney (@performancestudies_sydney) research seminar today. (Shout out to overseas collaborator @w_dc, you will be very missed!) · Justine Shih-Pearson (@jspinmidflight) is giving what looks to be a wonderfully entertaining talk deftly moving between choreographic strategies for writing, processed cheese and her new book project The Unkindness of Strangers, as only someone like Justine can. · JSP and I submitted our PhDs in this department on the same day about eight years ago, so there will be a bit of reflecting on what this experience and training has offered in the time since. Photo by Ryan G, riding the Megavalanche track in France, certainly a challenging and thought-provoking experience if, say, you've only seen snow a small number of times in your life! ⛄️
📝 "Trail therapy: there’s nothing quite like it for shaking out one lot of feelings and replacing them with others." · A short piece about the @rockytrailentertainment Superflow yesterday and why I enjoyed it so, so much. Link in my bio. ☺️ · Photo by @outerimage.au. Lovely to see you out there, Gil!
Well that was a fun day out! 🤩 Had a rough week and decided to head out to the @rockytrailentertainment Superflow (enduro but not) for some trail therapy, to catch up with my MTB family (lovely to see you all) and to do a week's worth of riding in a day (been a bit wet ☔️). The event delivered and delivered and delivered. The live timing made for some great tussles between myself and Melanie in second. Leanna, first, was in a class of her own. 🚴♀️✨ Stoked to finish above my race plate - #958. 😂 · Thanks to @thegayesy for the photo and for being such fun to ride with all day. She won her category and was coming second overall 'til she ate dirt with her chin on a flyer! · Well done all! Great vibe, fun trails and the best type of mud!
Beautiful Spring rides are just around the corner. 🍃🌻 · Meanwhile, here's climbing up l'Alpe d'Huez with @barneroo last month, a memory I will smile back on always. What a landscape! What a view! 🚴♀️🏔☀️
