"When that a******e Duncan Gay hiked the fines the mendacious bastard justified them by saying they were only being introduced for the safety cyclists. There have been 17 times the number of bell fines as there have been close pass fines, QED (using…"
"The comments quoted in the article coincide with the sort of bias I've encountered. At least 4 out of 6 Australians seem to strongly believe that MHLs are a panacea for cyclist safety even though they haven't ridden a bicycle since they…"
"So the police were out to get me and it wasn't just me being paranoid. FFS - what else can be said about this insanity? (And it is insane - the attack on bicycle riding in Australia is a mass hysteria - a very bad one)."
"I can't even being to fix that headline - it's so wrong it's beyond redemption.
I'm a person and I don't hate cyclists. I'm also a motorist and I don't think dockless bicycles will be a reason for me to hate anyone…"
"Pretty much sums up the human condition. "The meek shall inherent the earth" but only if they get the reins of power and double down with the hatred and spite that they've learnt from being downtrodden by blindly seeking revenge on…"

"Can I pay using Western Union money transfer?
(BTW "Cody Mathias" there is a link at the top of the page "ADVERTISE" that you should read - then again it seems you have spammed half the world's cycling forums so I guess you…"
"Yep the linked article mentions "Missing links in inner Sydney's network of cycle paths will be among the beneficiaries of $62 million in funding from the state government this year for so-called active transport."
"Yeah I can't imagine the China problem happening here...
But I can imagine councils and the police seizing and disposing of "abandoned" bike share bicycles.
Here's hoping it is a rip roaring success even though I expect it…"
"Hard to do an apples to apples comparison but if $62,000,000 of the $73,000,000,000 infrastructure budget is earmarked for "active" transport - Tibby Cotter bridge anyone? - then only $72,938,000,000 is left to be spent on motorways."
">"Cars that ate Sydney"
I read the NSW budget yesterday. Kids - "There is nothing more important than the education of our children" - get an additional $1.6 billion spent on schools. Roads (cars) get $73 billion. The NSW…"
