Cape to Cape photos 3 days processed 1 to go.

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

We've been hitting it hard since the event and hope to get the photos up in less time than last year, despite having two shooters at the event. We've already uploaded around 9,000 images (more than last year) and today we are finally onto the last day. It will take us the rest of the week and the weekend to get through them all and upload them.
Some general observations at this point.

Bangers noticed the "Sneaker" count seem down. ie Higher % of riders with cycling shoes. What does that mean? We've speculated.
Only 4 riders in 3 days with headphones on. Yes we have their race plates.

2014 Cape to Cape photos. Grinding away

Well I hope you had a more exciting weekend than Bangers and I. Grinding away processing photos. If you were at the event you might of noticed we had two shooters out bringing a mind numbing 25,000 images over 4 days. We're working hard to bring them to you as soon as possible but we are a long way from having them ready.
Once they are up you'll be able to search by race number and find your images.

All images will be at www.travisdeane.com

Thanks for your patience.

Riding in the US

OLD DOGS LEARNING NEW TRICKS!
I’m not sure who was crazier - me for suggesting a trip to the USA mountain biking, or my husband Clem for agreeing! In late April we embarked on a trip to America to mountain bike as many trails as we could in 6 weeks. Less than two weeks after booking our flights we were off with our Specialised Stumpjumpers in tow. As we only had one other bag each we had free transport of our bikes all the way to the States which we thought was pretty good.

Pimp my Fatboy

Back country redneck Erik gave me a sneak preview of his latest concept bike.
Full carbon fibre fattty with a butchered electronic Ultegra gear set.
He didn't give any details of the butchering, but was smiling as he said it.

CoS sk8 and BMX strategy wins a State Award, up for consideration of national.

It's taking it's time as all things do, but I'm sure eventually we will see some dirt jumps build in the City of Stirling.

Like to thank the council, mayor and staff and really appreciate the work been doing in background.

Not where you want to see your new ride

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Picked up my new bike on Saturday, but did the right thing by having Wembley Cycles give it a once over to make sure all was well before hitting the trails.

Had not had a chance to ride it other than at home on Saturday, so all excited about taking for a quick spin to work tomorrow.

Not 1km from the bike shop, this happens. Not the best photo, but was not really in a sound state of mind at the time.

Have to say I reckon the bike rack did a great job of protecting the bike form the worst of it. Nothing like a steel frame to put a hole in the radiator.
