I'm getting rather tired of hearing naysayers stating that they never see any bikes on Bourke Street.
Today I rode from Bondi Jungle to the Opera House and decided to make sure I did as much of of the trip as possible via Bourke Street.
I propose that cyclists should start to use this wonderful route (regardless of treatment, its a great link from Alexandria and beyond to the city).
Let's inhabit it, swamp it, make it a grand cycling focus point. Pull up out front of the businesses that are complaining about lost trade and make a point of supporting them.
I have seen people on fixies pulling great moves in the flat area where Bourke crosses Oxford.
I think cyclists should try to have a strong positive rallying presence here.
I know its a mess right now, but I think if we don't use it we'll lose it, and it could become to the cycling community what Oxford Street is/was to the gay community.
