"'...mess of cyclists on the gravel run-off..'
I was about 50m behind a big unit fanging round that first tight left-turn, I heard his tyre pop like a gun shot and could hear him skidding into the others who'd already gathered on the…"
"Inner West riders - another good post-ride coffee stop in rozelle is Hangry, next to Bendigo Bank, decent coffee, great breakfasts too, and plenty of space to leave the bike next to the outdoor/street-front seating area
@Hannah: errr... yes, Adri…"
"A lot of Danish & Dutch business people commute by bike... there is a Grant Thornton consultancy survey of stress levels in global business execs... the Danish business execs had one of the lowest stress levels. No clear link to cycling though,…"
"Agree with sit ubu sit... C02 + pump... this is the way to go for sure, especially on longer rides. i carry a beto alloy mini-pump on my bike, and in my (small) saddle bag, for longer rides at weekends/events etc, i will store 1-2 mini C02's.…"
"But there is the dude (or bike 'hoon') at roughly 1'03" who goes up on the pavement to cut in front of the good cycling boys & girls... seriously though, that looks like the place bikes & cyclists go after life... how…"

"Absolutely spot on. Even some of the more negative comments from drivers in response to the article aren't half as bad as you'd normally get. In the last 2-3mths there's been more prime media coverage of cycling than I can remember...…"
"I get a similar message from my Trend Micro security product - warns the site is infected with malware, as I'd been to the site before with no issues being flagged I just went in anyway and have had no virus or malware issues at all."
"Good call Dan.
Mike - if you really want to stick with the existing tyres for as long as possible or until you get a new bike, I suggest some tyre liners (sometimes referred to as inner-tape), Cell bikes sell two brands of liner online pretty cheap…"
"Even worse, cops watching whilst OzEco tours bus skim past a cyclist & beeping at said cyclist for no reason. 6.45am last Sunday 11 April, I'm cycling out to Watson's Bay via CBD to do my usual Watson's Bay-Bellevue Hill-Cent…"
"I think it is more common here due to the road rules etc. Also being ex pat I recall by law cyclists are not permitted to ride on motorways (M roads) in the UK but they are allowed on A roads (dual carriageways etc). I was driving up to Newcastle…"
Glad you enjoyed the day, after a wet start it improved no end and was most enjoyable, the roads around Mannering Park have not improve in 7 years when I first did this ride so dont expect anything soon.Cheers
