We are as excited as we are proud to sponsor, with Randwick Botany Cycling Club, the May Super Series. Prizes for guys! Prizes for girls! Prizes, prizes, prizes – thank you BikeBug for helping 
I’d ridden this descent four times in the past couple of weeks with various groups – first a lot of the riders from Easter Suburbs and then with some of the triathletes from The Brats. It’s a nice climb up Tawonga Gap in Bright, Victoria, but equally so on the way down.
Here’s the footage of the Moore Performance (vs Cheeky Velosport) laParouse Team Time Trial from this morning. 3000m of climbing over the weekend + being the only roadie with these TT bikes did not help at all

On Tuesday of this week I was fortunate enough to roll around Heffron’s crit course with a whole bunch of Moore Performance and Cheeky Velosport riders. It was a 5.45am start, which is pretty early for Heffron.

Here’s a great video from the ATO about setting up a SMSF. It’s only a few minutes long and well worth a look if it’s something you’ve ever considered. I especially like the bit at the end
The ATO outlines a lot of the moving parts to a SMSF fulfilling its legal obligations. They can be fun, provide you considerably more choice than you have now and help with estate planning but there is a lot of work that needs to be done. For many though, despite the work, they are a great choice.
More of the more common investment assets for a SMSF is an investment property. Whilst the ‘great Aussie dream’ of owning property can be a sound idea, what is not is you or your relative staying in it – even if it’s for a night!
Watson’s Bay KOM on a winter’s morning! Not a bad place to be whilst most others are sleeping
