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 !

CNF Mushroom Farmers Censored !

Francois the Postman not only closed down the “ Official etc,etc Lance Thread ” , he deleted a lot of “ posts ” and good on him ! There was a lot of excess verbiage between a handful of Posters that became tedious and for most of us readers it was a waste of time . Debating is one thing BUT nitpicking is entirely with out any redeeming features . I know that there were a few of my posts deleted since I prepare the post off the internet since broadband is so patchy where I live . Disappointed to see that my post encouraging people to checkout Charles Pelkey’s Red Kite article was removed although I also pointed out that it was only one of the few interesting items that I had gleaned in recent weeks .

From page 933 the total postings visible was dropped back to 880 whilst a number of people( moderators?) tried to sort the wheat from chaff ! Initially 6 hours closure of the thread was proposed but when it eventually reappeared page 910 became the new starting point . Already we have had a couple of wags twisting the tail of the moderators to see if they will bite . Certainly the standard of posting needed correction and with the next days being Christmas and New Year I doubt that any moderator would feel inclined to spend more than a few minutes away from their family and friends .

Best wishes to ALL my readers for their festivities !
