"What I prefer to do on the narrow streets in Marrickville and Newtown is to find a gap between the parked cars - press the bike against the cars and put my body in that gap - and let them go through."

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."

"I doubt it - they aren't close enough to the Cleveland - Bourke St lights - not that any cyclist would jump those lights anyway as Cleveland is too busy.  I do worry about the polices placement of their motorbike - that is a major bike…"

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.
