PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !

Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !

London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !

Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.

Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.

SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.

Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .

Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .

NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .

Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .

You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

SBS revisited

Recently i was advised that the SBS comment i had made earlier about Mike Mc Kay and featured in this post ( link ) had been published ! Seems that it took some time to be published and possibly my blog post triggered the reaction from a " mike " who one may think is " tommo " ! I noticed that in a comment on Bridie's blog on M F he penned himself as " micheal T. " so wonder if considering our discussion at the TDF in Les Herbiers IF indeed it is him ! Normally when people send SBS a comment it appears promptly but i had visited the story for several days before taking issue on the non publication . Over the years i have saved stories until i have seen the comment posted , as i like to see what reaction the comment creates .

The other comment on Mia Freedman has appeared twice in the comments section and since the postings , i have learned that she "tweeted " prior to her appearance on the TV Show that "she expected to upset a lot of people with her comments " ! Since then i have read " Bridie's Blog " which was a reply to M. F. and what a star she is and this item drew a lot of attention . During the various " Tour de Romandie " that i have visited i have had the chance to watch Bridie race and was unaware of the fact that she is a Qualified Doctor . Last time i saw her was with a cycling group at this year's Giro d'Italia when she reminded me that we had met previously .

Seems like an apology is due to the Authors of the Items where i posted the comments , hopefuly any further comments i make will appear in a timely manner .
