The video that changed a Canberra wife’s thoughts on cycling

the bakery bunch

I am a bike widow because I lose my husband to cycling MANY times a week. Not as many times as some women, but often enough for me to sometimes loathe the sport. Then I saw this video by Go Hard Productions. If you love/hate cycling or like pretty shots of Canberra, you MUST watch!

The Bakery Bunch meets every Saturday morning at Bicycle Centre – 14 Hindmarsh Drive Phillip.  It starts at 7am in the Winter and 6.30am in the Summer. Daylight savings changes mark the official change over time.

Newbies/rookies are welcome to come along and join, but they should know that it starts at moderate pace and slowly builds to FAST over the 65-70k loop. So, in other words, new people to the group are welcome, but if you are new to cycling, this isn’t for beginners.

This bunch has been going for 30 years! In fact this year marks it’s 30th birthday! There has been many different routes over time. Roads have changed, new suburbs have been built and Gungahlin simply keeps growing.

There is no contact person for the Bakery Bunch as such because it’s not an officially sanctioned ride. However you can find more information about cycling in Canberra on the Canberra Cycling Club website.

Are you into cycling? Maybe you are a widow like me?

While not accusing those involved in this group

Yes you are, see your next sentence, when you say “enthusiasts of this sort”

, enthusiasts of this sort who are obsessed with their PBs tend to be the ones who spoil others’ enjoyment of shared paths through their inconsiderate behaviour.

There was no time spent on shared paths, all public roads, mostly the shoulder of roads/ the outside lane.

How come drivers get to put on all the weight, cause most of the accidents and do all the polluting?
