Wild thing!

Last weekend I was a gorillagram as a surprise for my neice's 18th birthday. It was a hit. When I hired the costume, I found out I had it for the entire weekend. So what else could we do but GORILLA BIKE RIDES AROUND THE PARK!!!
The reactions from the sunny Saturday park-goers were of surprise and then amusement. We took some videos which we will blog later but in the meantime check out the fun we had!

First some Gazelle action...

Then on J-bot's Electra...

Milky Joe enjoyed his ride with dad.

Some sexy monkey moves...

Meditating monkey style...

And for no real reason at all...

All that bike riding made this gorilla more than a little hungry...

Whats your craziest fancy dress that you have ridden your bike in?

Tweed Ride 2011

Twas a lovely Sunday, beautiful and sunny which was lucky because we have never dragged ourselves out of bed so early for a bike ride. But this was the Sydney Tweed Ride and our reward was the sight of hundreds of dapper gents and ladies on beautiful bikes descending upon ye old Town Hall...

It was bikeling paradise.

If you must wear a helmet, either own it - like this beauty, or disown it like J-bot (below).

Milky Joe in a Tweed twin-set.

Kidlet tweed.

Stylish quirky attire was matched by the number of gorgeous and eccentric bikes...


Bourke Street cycleway had never seen such splendor!

So within two minutes of being at the Tweed Ride, I felt I had developed an attention disorder, so overwhelmed I was by the sheer effort and amount of detail put into each Tweedie's outfit and ride. So I just snapped... loads of pictures that is.

Will, the man who crochets (see scarf!).

So glad Bob Dylan could make it..

Congrats to MC Cyclery and Rocket Fuel for making the day huge as these huge photos prove! They did a splendid job..



Sydneysiders had certainly seen nothing like it as we rode to Tweedom (ha!).

Sydney's most infamous rider!


Believe it or not but the tangerine bike is called 'Dave'.

So what did we wear? Well the big revelation for me was that looking around at the Feather Brigade peeps, we realised that we weren't really dressed different from our normal day wear (see blog). In fact, everyone's clothes were stuff we had in our wardrobes and worn on our bikes before.

So we added parasols to make an effort...

And how should a good Tweed Ride end? With a picnic.. Just follow this dude!



And while aiming for some guerilla tweed action to celebrate our 100th blog, I may have got it a little wrong...

Or maybe just right.
