Llewster replied to Pat The Rat's discussion Rant-Did I do the Right Thing?

Llewster replied to Michael O'Reilly's discussion Sydney cyclists are winning the battle
"I would like bike boxes at that intersection. I already use one like a hook turn - so position myself going north up Anzac Pde towards Flinders going into the city.  Coming back - take the centre lane - take the lane."

Llewster replied to Michael O'Reilly's discussion Sydney cyclists are winning the battle

The four Everything's Connected videos are really great, thanks for pointing them out, you should perhaps start a discussion with links pointing these out, give them more prominence, people might miss the them buried in the videos section.

Well there isn't much to say about them really - its preaching to the converted here. But its good to see promotion for cycling. I suspect that the people here might make snide remarks about them - like the girl riding home from going out has no lights on her bike =) But it is complementary to the NY and London cycling promo material - personalising cycling by having a person talk about their experience cycling.
