    Helmet lifespan?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    How long would you anticipate a helmet to last, sans crashes or impact? Do you replace on a time schedule (ie, every 5 years), or kms travelled (I don't know, but, maybe 25 or 50,000kms?). Or use some other form of measurement to determine a new one is needed?

    Tyre/puncture repair

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    I ended up with the wrong type of screw yesterday - one stuck in my tyre. First flat I've had to deal with. Bike is safely parked at my place. I have roadside assist who will tow it to (named repairer of my choice) or I can limp it the 350m to Coleman's, just around the corner. Are there any...

    Garry Albrett Cliffhanger Promotions RIP


    It is with much regret that I must inform that Garry Albrett of Carterton has passed away.

    Garry suffered a heart attack this morning and did not regain consciousness.

    Garry was well known as the chairman of Cliffhanger Promotions. He and his wife Dina were the driving force behind the triannual motorcycle sprints and cliffhanger hillclimb. They both worked tirelessly on these events and Garry will be sorely missed.

    Garry's funeral will be held on Wednesday 8 July 2009, 11.00am ( arrive there at least 10.45am) at the Anglican Church, corner of High Street and Richmond Road, Carterton. (southern end of shopping centre)

    To all that knew Garry, helped with the Cliffhanger and sprints, or competed at them, it would be appreciated if as many as possible could attend on their bikes to give Garry a worthy send off.

    For those leaving from the Hutt side of the hill, I suggest meeting at Caltex Rimutaka at about 9.30am to leave at 9.45am.
