Unfortunately I’m at S-1 stage of the n+1 rule. Where S = the number of bikes that would cause separation.

But there’s hope for the future, as the wife wants 2 park bikes with baby seats. Then will come the toddler push bike, and so and so and in about 11 years my daughter and I will both be upgrading to new road bikes.
Being a recumbent rider, I would suggest if your wife wants to stick to cycle paths to get her a recumbent with a baby trailer. I love my recumbent and do quite a few k's on it. Get tired, just stop and have a rest,stay seated, no more sore / numb bums either!

Honestly I’ll be amazed if we ride more than 5km at a very sedate pace.

Most dull derail ever.
Yep, about as sickening as a stinky cyclist coming into a cafe decked out in their Lycra whilst I try to enjoy my poached eggs and avo on a weekend morning.

Here’s a thought, go home and shower and get changed. No one wants to see or smell it. Good for you that you exercise, so do I, but I don’t need the world to know as if it is some kind of badge of honour.

End rant.

Guessing most cafes are more than happy to have the multitude of cyclists stink the place out. They keep many a cafe afloat me thinks.

We cycle as a group on weekends however we always sit outside although we still have to order.

I never get this disgust for cyclists. We keep so many cafes open and if you don't like it while you are enjoying your eggs benedict, go to a different cafe.

Yes cafes should really have no-stinking sections, as a public health service. ;)

One cafe I go to has to turn away full paying patrons that want breakfast, yet get turned away by a table of 10 cyclists all drinking their $4 coffee. If anything, cyclists send some cafes broke.

I don’t get why need to stop half way through something to have a coffee in completely inappropriate clothing.

I don’t see anyone else undertaking a sporting activity that requires a half time coffee break. I should recommend it to my fellow CrossFit colleagues.:rolleyes:

Living in bayside Melbourne, cyclists in cafes on weekends let alone weekdays is unbearable and what’s worse is the pack mentality of these arrogant middle aged tossers that prance around wanting people to look at them.

I am neither of these and I am fairly sure the majority of cyclists are not. Plus, you are living in bayside Melbourne, one of the best and most popular cycling places in the world. If you can't beat us, join us.

Are we trading for a cyclist in the immediate future and if so who and how's their form? Can they play in the wet? Agility issues? Maybe we'll get two of the buggers to deal with the go home factor.

Then again maybe I'm just hanging about in the wrong tread and don't know it. ;):rainbow:

General Manager of Football David Noble said this was a strategic move for the Club.

“We are only allowed to have four selection for our four available positions at this year’s draft,” he said.

“This swap allows us to maximise our hand at this year’s and 2020’s draft.”

I like the value, but will it stop us matching Cumberland if someone bids in the 40s?

Edit: it'll just be a deficit we have to make up next year right? Does that come from the round the bid is made, or from our first pick?
