Leonardo replied to noelbike's discussion Something for the anti-helmet brigade
"Noel, whilst unrelated to the issue of high powered electric mopeds, the Anti-Helmet Brigade is, I think ,the Ainti-MHL brigade, and whilst some would argue never to wear a helmet most want to have the option given the circumstances of their ride.…"

"I have a few Orps being brought back from the states by my wife for me and my friends to try out.  I like the idea of the sound being relative to the force applied to the horn and the flashing lights as a part of one unit. I will report on…"

Leonardo replied to JZ's discussion Greetings from a Sydney bound American
"As someone who used to do those inspections at Sydney International Airport, just make sure there is no mud underneath or on the tyres, 9 out of 10 bikes get through OK, the others get washed in the wash bay by Quarantine staff, which can delay you…"

Leonardo replied to Michael O'Reilly's discussion Trip report: my cycle tour across Norway and Denmark ....
"Nice to see you back safely, though it does seem you may have been underprepared. I guess most of us take the attitude that if we forgot something we could buy it on the way. Sounds a bit risky given where you started your ride. I will put in a vote…"

Tell us about your bikes
My main ride to work bike is a Mongoose Randonneur, I simply love it. I have my first bike, a Learsport mountain bike as a back up (I know people hate Learsport, but it was what got me into biking and this one is quite a nice bike.)
About Me:
I'm an artist who works as a quarantine officer for a living. I run a small gallery with my wife on Old Canterbury Rd.
I am the web master for AshBug and an acredited Ride Leader.
I ride to work at Rosebery most days and social rides on weekends.

Tempe reserve bike path blocked by Salination pipeline construction.

On my morning commute from Dulwich Hill to Rosebery, I pass through Tempe reserve to the footbridge over the canal to link up with the cycle way along Qantas drive. This morning my path was blocked by a chain mail fence. I came close to hitting it.
No where does there seem to be an attempt to accommodate bikes with an alternative path, only a pedestrian way over the rough parkland.
This is a major connection between the Cooks River cycleway and the route to the eastern suburbs, including the Uni of NSW.

I just find it unbelievable that they can do this without warning, I ride this route 3 to 4 times a week. What can we do? I will ring their hot line number but if they are as abstract as there web site I'm sure they will just ignore my complaints. More later

Hi Leonardo, welcome to the site!
You should set up an AshBug group here, I know of at least one other AshBug rider here.
