"Correct me if I'm wrong, but the bit on Patterson/Gipps/Queen is just paint in the door zone I believe. That, to me, isn't actually infrastructure. You are right about the plans being underwhelming."

Parramatta Light Rail.

If you live in Parramatta Area you may (or may not) be aware of the proposed Parramatta Light Rail link http://www.parramattalightrail.nsw.gov.au/ Apparently, they are considering including an Active Transport corridor beside the link - Westmead through to Carlingford. This would be excellent as Parramatta to Carlingford is a difficult ride and rail lines are usually nicely graded (and off road) Please encourage them to do this by…See More

saw you riding up Seven Hills Road just across Toongabbie Creek yesterday, distinctive bike, tyres and helmet. Around 3:30PM

have fun with the resurrecting of the bike. I had bits from all sorts of bike laying around so just chose what looked in good condition.

I used spray from a can but it seems that it did not stick so well even so I sanded that frame back for hours and gave it an undercoat. But it is getting a nice useage pattina so not out of place on a beater bike. Rode it yesterday and was surprised at how well it rolled compared to a loaded commuter or even my long distance Audax bike.

A lot of fun to ride and gets plenty of comments. I have a nice collection of tools as well soif you need something let me know, you are close by.
