What You Missed

What You Missed This Afternoon

When @BradWiggins tweets that he’s going for a ride at 3:30, everyone suddenly gets flu-like symptoms and had to leave work early. photo by Leigh Schilling



If you couldn’t get out this morning here’s a taste of what you missed: Can you believe this is right in the middle of Melbourne?  Thought we were in France for a minute. One of the first of many sunny skies to come and I almost felt naked letting the limbs breath without arm and […]

WYMTM Finalists

I’ve narrowed down the top  “What You Missed This Morning” finalists and put them up in this gallery. I’m delighted that the What You Missed theme has started to be coined “WYMTM”.  Thanks to everyone who has come up with this time saving abbreviation (props to Justin who got it rolling). As you can see […]


What You Missed This Evening

Saw this spectacular sunset at the end of my ride this evening and had to pull over at Ormond Point (Melbourne) to capture it.  This Parlee Z1 was lent to me after my Look snapped in half.  I tell ya, it’s one of the fastest and most comfortable bikes I’ve ever ridden. It’s almost like […]


What You Missed This Morning…

A brisk but sunny morning out in Kinglake with 20 of my best riding mates  (a short ride north of Melbourne).  This is where the forest fire devastation took place last February.  The vegetation is slowly regenerating but the communities are still trying to get back on their feet.  Almost just as devastating was the […]


What You Missed This Morning…On The Hell Ride

Had to drop to the back of the 150+ bunch this morning to capture the spectacular view coming down Oliver’s Hill on the Hell Ride.   Magic!  Decided to be a well behaved cyclist and stop at some traffic lights.  Never caught back on…bugger!

What You Missed This Morning…CONTEST!

I’ve been pleasantly overwhelmed with the number of emails I’ve been getting with amazing photos of morning rides from all over the world.   I don’t ever want to turn anyone away but can’t possibly put all the photos up on the front page.  Until I figure out a way to deal with all of […]


What You Missed This Morning…In Scotland

This is the Crow Road which leads up and over the Campsie Fells just North of Glasgow. Not very exotic but it’s a great road and a challenging climb and normally busy with cyclists, bikers and hill walkers. On this very grey and wet Saturday at dawn, however, it was silent, empty and shrouded in […]
