RAmib in the Redland

Welcome to the virtual home of the TOFFs, Tandeming Old Fat Farts, Malcolm and Rosemarie. Malcolm is the proud owner of a road bike, a mountain bike, 2 flat bars, and the front end of three tandems, while Rosemarie owns a road bike, flat bar, a mountain bike and the rear end of three tandems. Most of our cycling escapades are in the Redland City because this is where we live, which is just to the east of Brisbane-the capital of Queensland, Australia. However, you may see us venturing outside of our shire from time-to-time, usually on Trusty our original old faithful the tandem. You will also find us at MTBO events around South East Queensland, on our latest tandem, Tiberius. We would love to hear your thoughts on our cycling misadventures, or your thoughts on any of our narratives on other areas of interest to us. So, please feel free to make comments.

What Ever: 06.12.05, 19:29:41 by mib

Movies: 08.06.05, 23:51:04 by mib
 
Movies The movie version of this classic 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' is boring. Why does the movie industry consider their viewing public are morons? Some say they dumb it down for the American market, but I don't understand why, as Americans ...
