Ride on Washington

I don't think anyone has posted on this yet, but I found it interesting in the light of the (to my mind artificial and self-defeating) separation between bike advocacy and bike racing.Tim Johnson is a six-time US cyclocross champion who led a group ride from Boston to Washington (538 mi/866 km) to promote cycling in all forms. As a racer he has some very interesting and useful things to say about why he decided to devote himself to advocacy as well as sport. Being a cyclocrosser, he may be well…See More

Berkshire Review replied to Chris Moore's discussion Crazy drivers
"You make a really important point, Rob, and very well put. If the problem is attitude, then what will be the attitude adjuster in Sydney? I’m in Paris at the moment and what amazes me is that there are so many cyclists, men and women of all…"

Berkshire Review replied to kirby's discussion cars and bikes whats the problem?
"I tend to ride off road most of the time these days, but today I was out riding on a route I used to do all the time without too many problems (on the North Shore) and was really struck by how aggressive drivers have become. It seemed to me that a…"

"What worked for me recently was clamping the BB tool in a vice and (gently) using the frame for leverage to unlock the stubborn BB."

Berkshire Review replied to Lord République d'Guillotine's discussion Now an advocacy group calls for bicycle registration
"I think education will persuade a certain percentage of bad drivers, particularly young ones and those who are merely careless rather than psychotic, but the culture won't change until there are more bikes out there and there won't be more…"

Berkshire Review replied to Lord République d'Guillotine's discussion Now an advocacy group calls for bicycle registration
"Biker1's response above is an important point about communication which I hope the AGF will consider. I think one of the causes of the frustration in this thread is the continuing lack of a clear "no" to registration from the AGF.…"

Berkshire Review replied to Lord République d'Guillotine's discussion Now an advocacy group calls for bicycle registration
"Thank you for your reply, Tracey. Those are all useful initiatives on the part of AGF, but I want to make it clear that I think we should be advocating for 1-2% of the transport budget to be spent on actual physical cycling infrastructure, not just…"

Berkshire Review replied to Lord République d'Guillotine's discussion Now an advocacy group calls for bicycle registration
"While I can appreciate that people get misquoted in the media, I'm still not clear on the AGF's position on whether there should be an investigation of bike registration (the subject of this thread, after all). At the very least their…"

Berkshire Review replied to sydneyCommuter's discussion Interesting article in Herald about bike share scheme that works
"It's a great idea, and Parisians certainly take advantage of it. There's no doubt it's feasible in Sydney, the problem is the usual suspects would kick up a holy fuss — "Cyclists Cause Traffic Madness: Little Brittney…"

"Also the scheme in Boston, which started this year, has been a huge success (though the bikes have to go inside for the winter!): http://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2011/11/26/the-boston-bike-share-success-story/WU11zHohR4w1k9X2oWbcxL/story.html "

"If you don't mind a bit of dirt, there is a fire trail along Blackbutt Ck. between Lady Game Drive and Vale Street Gordon. If you come out of LCNP at Deburgh's Bridge, you can get onto Lady Game Drive by crossing Ryde Road at the…"

Berkshire Review replied to stuh's discussion Best route to Gordon from Wollstonecraft
"That road is pretty scary — a real rat run from Lindfield to Gordon. I would love to see it turned into a "bicycle boulevard" since it's so useful for getting up the North Shore."

Berkshire Review replied to JimmyH's discussion NSW BUDGET LATEST: Greenway "deferred"
"I think it's a great idea. A few hundred enthusiastic cyclists could build the whole thing for something less than $30 million I would think.   Otherwise we're just supposed to wait forever, write letters, sign petitions. Building…"
