Nick’s Lapierre Bike

I wanted to let you know how very happy I am with my new bicycle. She is all I hoped for and more.

I have ridden a loop   – out along the Dalyston Glen Forbes Rd. left onto Mill Rd., along Trew Rd. to the Woolamai-Turnbull Rd. and finally   along the Bass Hwy.

This route seems to have it all; grinding climbs to the awesome view at the top of Mill Rd., a ‘death-defying’ sweeping decent (I’m touching the brakes to hold my speed under 60 KPH) then the long straight past the Woolamai Racetrack. Feeling exhilarated and relatively rested I begin a second series of climbs over the saddle and along the final stretch of the Woolamai-Turnbull Rd. Finally, head down, I push along the Bass Hwy before swinging through Dalyston. Just under 24 kms. Brilliant.

It’s only since I have ridden this bike that I realise how much stress and strain the frame and the wheels absorb. The roads are not smooth, and when I am really moving I am trusting my life that these elements will hold together, that I will have traction, stability, cohesion, that the machine will do exactly what I want it to and that I can place an unconscious trust in all these components to work.  Well, my Lapierre gives me this feeling – of trust and satisfaction.

I stop on the decent back to the Bass Hwy. and eat a banana and suck down the rest of my water. I stand on one side of the road and my bicycle rests against a road marker on the other. The view over to Cape Woolamai and down the coast towards Walkerville is lovely, a few cows stare at me, there are no cars and the air is sweet. Then I look at my bike and the picture is perfect, because I rode all the way here and am about to hop on for the ride home.

I have the bike up on its stand behind where I am typing this letter. There she is when I open the front door and I think about the next ride I might do on the weekend – should I extend my loop out to Glen Forbes itself and come along Glen Forbes Dalyston Rd.? Maybe I will.

Anyway, enough of my purple prose, I want to thank you both for your advice and service.”

“Just a short note to let you know how pleased we were with the service visit from Morgan today. He arrived on time, pleasantly introduced himself and began work immediately. Morgan made sure he cleaned the heater thoroughly, taking the time to answer our questions and even offering some suggestions for more efficiency of the unit. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he made sure he vacuumed the area around the heater, with his own vacuum!!! It was a pleasure to have Morgan visit today and to receive genuine excellent service.

“I would just like to say how much I am loving my new bike, it is such a treat and dream to ride, the gears are responsive, it just glides, I just push a bit and it takes off.
