I ride my bike as often as I can, and take it with me when we go away with our caravan. However, I definitely do NOT wear lycra, and stick to dedicated bike tracks wherever possible. Most towns have some bike tracks, and many are very good. Using them keeps me away from traffic, which is a real bonus. Since Cadel Evans won the Tour de France, cycling has had a big boost here in Australia, but some of the so-called "Lycra Lunatics" are giving it a bad name on the roads.

RE: Peter trains for the tour of Oz
 Rider looks nothing like Peter
 With a nose like that must be based on some famous Frenchman like Cyrano De Bergerac for instance   {-)
