Nicko is leaving Cheeky..

Posted in in Uncategorized on December 20th, 2014 by nicholasb | 16 Comments

It’ll be my last day at Cheeky on Tuesday the 23rd. I’ve got a new full-time role, working to grow Brompton folding bikes in Australia, which is just about the only thing that could make we want to leave this excellent bicycle shop.

A million thank-yous to Adam and David, Mick, Lee-Baby, Johnny-John-John, Lu-Lu, Aido, Marky, Donny and Maisey for being a stand-up bunch of guys to work with over the last 7-1/2 years.  A million more thank-yous to all of our fantastic customers for making every day in the shop immensely fun and rewarding. I am so grateful to have been able to help make so many bicycle dreams come true for so many lovely people.

 - Nicko

Newcastle Overnight – Dynamo Special!

Posted in in Events, Uncategorized on October 28th, 2014 by schmadzie | 5 Comments

We can’t wait for the 3rd Newcastle Overnight. Nicko will be doing it on the Brompton, and Maisey and Donny will be on their cargo bikes.

Head to http://newcastleovernight.com/ for rego and all the details.

We’d love to encourage you to take part. It’s a really fantastic ride. One thing that really makes a big difference is a good set of dynamo lights, and if you’d like to get set up, we can offer a 15% discount on the cost of SP Hub / B+M Light dynamo set up. It’s only for Newcastle Overnight riders though, so you’ll have to prove you finished the ride to claim your discount.

Nick has been furiously beavering away on organising a whole bunch of awesome events surrounding the innaugural Australian Brompton Champs.

We will be doing a short ride after work on saturday Oct 18 for pizza and scenic views and drinks. All Brompton riders are welcome!

Check out the rest of the festivities, and register to race (don’t forget your jacket and tie!)

 

The Weekend

October is a great time for cycling in Sydney, and as well as all the action of the Brompton Australian Championship, the 2014 Cycling and Wellbeing Festival and the Sydney Rides Festival will be making the city a great place to ride.

As well as the Championship, we’ll be staging a social event on October 18th for Brompton racers to get together, and a celebration afterwards on the evening of the 19th.

Racing or not, all Bromptonauts are welcome to join in the following events:

Saturday 18 October – Welcome to Sydney Pizza Ride from Cheeky

If you’re travelling from interstate or overseas to race, we’d like to welcome everyone to Sydney with a ride and get-together.

We’ll be meeting at Cheeky Transport3a Georgina St Newtown at 4pm on Saturday the 18th, and riding to Batty St Park at Rozelle for fantastic pizza from Rosso Pomodoro and drinks from the Bald Rock Hotel, and a glorious view over the harbour and city as the sun sets.

Sunday 19 October – Ferry To Homebush

There’s lots of ways to get to Olympic Park , but by far the most scenic is via the ferry along the Parramatta River.

Depending on where you’re travelling from, you can either meet us at Cheeky Transport3a Georgina St Newtown at 9am on Sunday the 19th or at Darling Harbour Wharf 3 in time to catch the 9.50 ferry to Olympic Park 

Sunday 19 October - Concordia Club Tempe

We’ll be celebrating the conclusion of a successful championships at the Concordia Club in Tempe from 4pm or so on the 19th. It’s a lovely leisurely ride along the Cooks River Cyclewayfrom Olympic Park to Tempe, or  a short hop from Marrickville or Tempe Train Station

Surly Touring Weekend March 8/9 Mittagong to Wombeyan caves

Posted in in Uncategorized on February 14th, 2014 by schmadzie | 5 Comments

 

wombeyan_collage

An overnight bike camping tour along beautiful dirt roads in the Southern highlands. There’s a couple of long climbs , so easy gears and wide tyres will make it more pleasant. Perfect for Surlys.

Sat March 8

7:24am train from central to mittagong (change at Campbelltown). We arrive at 9:42 for a 10am start from the station.

It’s pretty much all dirt once we get out of mittagong, and dropping down to the Wollondilly River Station where we will be camping. It’s a lovely spot by the river, so pack your toggs. We will leave our gear here. 45km

Saturday afternoon – Either flake out by the river, or ride up another climb to Wombeyan Caves for an icecream and cave visit, Then ride back to the river. I’m thinking an indian communal meal, Bring your curry ! 40km

Sunday March 9

Ride back up the big climb and then visit a winery or two on the way back to Mittagong station. 45km

If you’ve bought a sweet Surly from us and would like to take it for a run, please RSVP to info@cheekytansport.com.au
