ROAD SAFETY STRATEGY FOR NEW SOUTH WALES 2012 – 2021

A new strategy is out for comment, and one of the few things that will be done for cyclists will be educational programs to target bicycle riders to increase the use of helmets, visibility, rights and responsibilities etc (see below). This feels very much like a 'victim blaming' approach where responsibility is allocated to the vulnerable to protect themselves.  Where are the communication/education campaigns for drivers?! To "consider" the development of safe dedicated bike routes is a very…See More

That is a shame - do you know how they stole it? There just aren't that many Vivente tourers around so do you think it was more than an opportunistic cash converters style heist? Have you replaced it with the same bike then? My new tourer is almost ready so I will definately have to up the locking methods as it will be very steal worthy!
