Llewster replied to Mike_H's discussion Route advice - Surry Hills to / from SHB
"I still prefer Kent St over York St mainly because I just don't like buses. I'd rather go slowly - wait a few minutes - etc - than get crushed by a bus.  Then I prefer King St mixing with cars over going up Druitt St/Park St with…"

Llewster replied to herzog's discussion Advanced Stop Lines
"The best option for cyclist on Oxford turning right into College is to stay in the left lane - and doing a hook turn - esp when there is a green light going west. So going through lights and positioning yourself in the left lane of Wentworth Ave…"

"Yes - see a lot more cyclists these days on the Gore Hill Fwy Share Path - great to see. I slow down - or just go the same speed as I usually go as Im a slow cyclist. I still feel im a bit of a minority - wearing my everyday clothes riding to work…"

Llewster replied to BIKESydney's discussion CBD Light Rail - Getting Cycling onboard
"The main concern I have for the CSELR is the removal of trees at the expense of just using the road. All the way along - Devonshire St - Anzac Pde - Alison Rd - Wansey Rd - High St. It was my thinking that people were all for the light-rail because…"

Llewster replied to Snowy_5's discussion 2014 - Damn,those kamikaze stuka magpies
"Yes go past this magpie - feel it likes to attack from behind - so I always look in all directions at once so it won't try it."

Llewster replied to BIKESydney's discussion CBD Light Rail - Getting Cycling onboard
"The biggest question with this is - can we use the light rail corridors to cycle on - eg George St when that has a lightrail down it. Devonshire St - and tunnel and overpass over Southern Cross Drive and Anzac Pde?"

Llewster replied to Colin's discussion Campbell St Cycleway Progress
"I think Campbell St is supposed to be the alternative route to Oxford St. Getting you across to Castlereagh which will eventually have a cycleway on it as well and of course linking up to Bourke St Cycleway at the other end. It will be good for…"

Llewster replied to herzog's discussion Clover's man scrapping Oxford St Bus/Bikelane
"I think what they are after is a buffer between the road sewer and the shops - and they believe the parked cars are a win win in that situation - people can park and they are a buffer at the same time. What they hate are big loud buses and fast cars…"

Llewster replied to Jaya Jha's discussion Taking a vintage bicycle to Blue Mountains
"My suggestion to you doing Katoomba (when going the station to The 3 Sisters) - best to use Lurline St (parallel to Katoomba St) - esp when coming back from The 3 Sisters.  Lurline has a much more even gradient and has bike lanes on the side of…"

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.
