Bike & Kangaroo Heaven in the Bush Capital

Bike and Trains Study Tour, Netherlands from carltonreid on Vimeo.

This is so inspiring. Selina continues to delight, except her rear tires keep exploding. BANG!!! I have put an extra layer of protective tape between the wheel rims and the tube. Will see how it goes. Her 20 year old spoke ends are a bit rough for these modern day mamby pamby tubes.

I continue to LUST after a Workcycles Oma.

Be still my beating heart.

In other news, I had the joy of showing some overseas visitors (Wales and Scotland) a bit of local wildlife. Their joyous amazement in Kangaroos reignited my own. They can't believe you can see Kangaroos just hopping around beside the roads near and in the city. And the Emu's just sent them silly. We spent 2 hours searching for Koalas in the 20 acre - ish Koala enclosure at Tidbinbilla, only to discover we were looking for one of "about 7" of the little blighters, so gave up and had tea and cake. Luckily a new Mr Koala was in the quarantine enclosure near the entrance, awaiting release into the general paddock, so we got to see at least one.

And how about this weather.

And I am not mentioning that silly Mr Rabbit.

Sounds like you need a bit of rim tape. I get all my parts from here, the best bike shop on the web, great service.

I did have some rubber rim tape on there....but it wasnt enough, so have added a layer of sticky cloth stuff.
