"My girls ride their bikes around the streets quite a lot: down to the park and to daycare (2km). I've been getting them to practice since they're about 3 so they've had a lot of riding. (And before that scooting.) Like you the biggest…"
"Good on you Boom shankar. Now, I wonder whether the gruff dismissive bloke has time to read these forums ....
With cheap freight and the www the LBS without customer service isn't going to last long."
"I never see the same car again riding to work in the morning through the inner west, it's likes a slow moving car park for the drivers only they're not looking for a park. Even though school's back again, there's definitely more…"
"I swerved past a fairly large bunch of keys in the middle of the intersection of Railway Terrace and West St at Petersham. It looks like it fell out of someone's pocket as they were travelling east along Railway Terrace. I was past this…"
"believe it or not, there was a motorcycle cop booking people there a couple of years back. I stopped and thanked him. Haven't seen anything since.
I live 200 yards from there and must be the only idiot that takes the long way around to get…"
"That Cowper St/Glebe St connection is interesting- it says No Entry so bikes are theoretically banned, but the paved area is a shared footpath. I think there was once a Bicycles Excepted sign there- it is on a bike route to/from the City. Another…"
"If anyone does speak to the council they could also ask them to smooth the 'driveways' at either end of this section. Even on a mountain bike they give the body and and bike a pretty good shake at anything more than 5 km/h; on a road bike…"
"Similar to the bollards on the Bay Run at Haberfield- a real pain, and dangerous, with eroded edges on the footpath and a bumpy drainage grate. The ones above wouldn't stop kamikazi cyclists anyway, they could just go around the side it…"
"Another way to approach this would be to approach the council about making it a 10 K shared zone ( or 20 K if this becomes possible) and usable in both directions. This would benefit local residents, particularly cyclists and walkers. If it is a…"
"I know someone who regularly takes a bike on the morning westbound, western line train and then cycles the second half of the commute (where there's no trains but a new cycleway!). This person boards the train in the innerwest and gets off…"
"I'd speak to the council. You shouldn't have to dob in individuals, the council should investigate. Though I do believe in feigning stupidity, smiling and proclaiming "Oh my, you poor thing! You've come the wrong way down a one…"
Just after some opinions:There's a section of Ashmore St Erskinville that I commute along that's signposted so that cars can only go through west to east. But there's nothing but a couple of no entry signs to "prevent" cars from going from east to west. This morning I cycled through…See More
So you ran into Dave Campbell.
