At the time of writing, it’s 53 days, 20 hours and 8 minutes till the start of the 19th edition of Paris-Brest-Paris on August 18, 2019. For me, it will be the second time after 2015 to take part in a legendary event that is older than the modern Olympic games. Four years ago, when […]
Se trata de un documental rodado en Carahue y que, a través del fútbol, cuenta los orígenes de esta comuna. La obra se presenta como una producción audiovisual y a la vez, como un rescate a la memoria. Carahue “Arriba de la Pelota” 120 años de historia es un largometraje documental producido en la “Ciudad […]
Passeio de domingo do Pedal Clube de Pernambuco. Paulo com Dahon e Baga com Audax, encontramos o pessoal no Parque da Jaqueira. Um grupo de 11 ciclistas, guiados pelo Presidente Odilon, pedalamos cerca de 60 km. Passeio urbano pelas ruas da cidade, que estava bastante calma, pois acontecia o feriado de São João e boa […]
I have called Menorca my home for over 15 years, and Cala Galdana is without a doubt one of my favourite spots. A combination of many factors makes it, in my opinion, a little piece of paradise. Think golden sand and the crystal-clear turquoise waters, towering pine trees and dramatic limestone cliffs. This beautiful resort […]
Miche Performance 57mm drop brakes bring you stopping power in a dual-pivot design made from lightweight alloy. Available in a choice of either anodized silver or black, they are excellent value & a good choice for audax and winter bike builds.
One of the great things about my wife being my boss is that she tries to improve my work-life balance. Over the last year she has encouraged me to resume two hobbies, cycling and photography, that got pushed out of my life decades ago by work. As with almost everything I have ever done, […]
Aquila audax. Australia’s largest bird of prey. Found in a variety of habitats across Australia and southern New Guinea. Feeds on a variety of prey animals. Large lizards, birds, rabbits, wallabies, young kangaroos, bandicoots, goats, sheep, and carrion make up just some of the menu. I made another Wedge-tailed panel two years ago when I […]
As in the previous post, I am featuring one of the numerous shots of a quite regular subject, namely Phidippus audax. Apart from its endearing curiosity, large eyes, and beautiful green chelicerae, it also is a longtime resident in the home, sometimes even showing up around the year end holidays (when I am writing this, […]
There are probably a lot of cyclists out there who occasionally, on good days, when the sun is shining, and the wind is from behind, think that perhaps it would be nice to be able to ride for a living. To guide tours in Mallorca, or turn professional, or just tour the world making money […]
Sharing the bead-to-bead protection of Duraskin, the Hardshell casing of this folding tyre wraps further into the sidewall with the extra-wide PolyX Breaker covering the entire tread strip from shoulder-to-shoulder. Great for Winter use. The long distance runner. A durable carbon black mixture, a well regarded puncture protection system and the DuraSkin™-anti-cut fabric turn the […]
Before each Audax I have my routines. The things that I normally do, that make sure that I have every chance of success.
O tu qui servas armis ista moenia, noli dormire, moneo, sed vigila! dum Hector vigil extitit in Troia, non eam cepit fraudulenta Graecia. Prima quiete dormiente Troia laxavit Sinon fallax claustra perfida. per funem lapsa occultata agmina invadunt urbem et incendunt Pergama. vigili voce avis anser candida fugavit Gallos ex arce Romulea; pro qua virtute […]
The final qualifying ride for Paris-Brest-Paris 2019 616kms. For the Muswell Hill Peloton squad, a fickle bunch of timewasters, this was going to be a tough ride due to the fact that 3 out of the 4 riders insisted on sleeping in a bed after 350 kms! The Wattmeister’s suggestion of traditional tried and tested ‘audax […]
Lolo Fernandez: one of the most popular football players in Latin America In the 12-year career of the Peruvian team from 1935 to 1947, Lolo Fernandez was not a World Cup player, such as O'Brudario Varela of Uruguay and Leonidas Da Silva of Brazil. . After all, he is still an inspiring leader in the…
