"I can empathize with the heavy-handed treatment you received. As you know these incidents are hard if not impossible to fully get over. At least the Bombers took some nominal revenge on the "boys in blue" at the MCG that night…"

Jim Moore commented on Colin's group Helmetless riders
"I guess because you have to spell it out, that is: 90% of the people riding bikes who were killed were within the minority 20-25% of those who wear helmets, and only 10% of those killed came from the 75-80% of riders who ride naturally. So if you…"

"What an amazingly psychotic reply that is. It consists entirely of projection and denial. That a nutcase got to be in such a position speaks loudly of how low cycling in Australia has sunk. We now have a whole generation of 20-year olds who never…"

Jim Moore replied to Omar@Go! Alliance's discussion Travel blog: One-hand riding in Amsterdam
"Pro cycling policy *does* make economic sense, it's not a perception. Culturally all humans are cheapskates, perhaps this is accentuated in The Netherlands because they've had to make half of their country's land area by hand. The…"

Hi Jim,

Love your frog, but can he ride?

That's a wonderful tale of how you came to get the Gazelle. It is true that they have a very civilising effect - I bought mine expecting to zip around like I used to on the old mountain bike but soon found I had become a respectable gentleman cyclist.
