I need help deciding on my replacement bike

Posted on January 20, 2011 at 10:44am 7 Comments

My bike was stolen on the way back from a trip to tassie - I need a replacement - and I'm a little undecided....

So if you can help at all, I'm looking for something with these criteria:

  • I ride everyday so I guess it's good to have something comfortable
  • I like to go cycle touring so something that doesn't mind the hills and bumps
  • I like to carry excessive amounts of stuff (and ocassionally dink people) so something sturdy
  • I don't want it to be…

This morning I met a truckie....

Posted on December 15, 2009 at 3:56pm 5 Comments

This morning I was happily riding my bike up oxford street in a colourful summer dress. I was trying to get in the right lane before Taylor square so I didn't get stranded on the left of the road. A big petrol tanker was behind me but I gave the truckie a wave and he slowed down to let me in. I continued along fitzroy street and the truckie passed me and gave me a wave. He got stuck at the red light at moore park road so I got ahead of him as I raced down the Anzac Parade bike path. He did get… Continue

When vehicles start talking

I had the strangest experience on Sunday while cycling along York Street in the city. I pulled up at a red light on the right side of a bus. As I sat there admiring sydney's architecture, I notice the bus creep forward next to me. The bus driver then started to speak to me as his window was now inline with me. He was worried about me getting sunburnt but I reassured him I was covered in sun screen from head to toe. After this conversation starter we proceeded have a nice little chat. He was… Continue

Changing phases - how to ask the RTA to consider cyclists

Posted on September 23, 2009 at 4:00pm 3 Comments

Through a mixture of frustration (directed towards the RTA for their lack of consideration of cyclists), procrastination (directed towards my uni work) and determination (directed at me trying to be a worthwhile citizen) - I decided to try and change the phasing of the traffic lights at the intersection of Darley Road and Alison Road. I thought I would tell the trials and moments of inspiration just on the off chance that it spurs you into action in tackling your favorite inconvenience, death… Continue

The world is the right size for me that the moment I reckon :)

There is a lot to read through in that report isn't there? Provided the powers that be listen to feedback then hopefully the outcome will be a bit more satisfactory than the King Street Cycle Way in town.

Also, Friday, Ta for the invite :)

Hi Jacqueline,
Yep, that meeting went ahead. Paul was trying to find out what mapping projects people were involved with, and seeing whether they was any overlapping. Not much more so far. I don't think I have the skills for developing apps. But I'm quite happy doing the grunt work of collecting tracks and entering them into the OSM database.
