"Excellent map, except they have a very old website link for LBUG. Hope USyd are pressuring RMS etc to make those routes into the Uni better, eg The Crescent and Ross St. Does show Physics Rs as a bike route but doesn't show the one way, which…"

"The Uni roads make a loop now, so you can still do the connection in that direction. I'm not sure if they are real one-ways or just no-entries, therefore not sure if you have to use the other half-loop.   Heaps of people are contraflow…"

"Bit peeved they made Physics Rd one way. They could exempt bikes as it is the handiest way to go from City Rd to Parramatta Rd at Ross St gates."

About Me:
I think Sydney is a very cycling unfriendly city, compared to many other world cities. We need to advocate or things will never improve. We need lower car speed limits (like other states do), and build more dedicated cycleways.

Imagine a new vehicle that emits no emissions

Posted on November 20, 2008 at 7:30pm 13 Comments



The Federal government has given the Australian car industry hundreds of millions of dollars to develop a "green" car. One that still uses petrol, but a slightly reduced amount.



Still on the green theme, the Federal government is also subsidising individual home owners $8000 to install solar panels on their roofs.



In the quest to develop the elusive green vehicle, the government has forgotten that we already have one... the bicycle.



Imagine if… Continue

Speed Limits

In July, 2008, the On Your Bike Active Transport conference held at Homebush Bay identified road speed limits as the number #1 issue inhibiting bicycle usage in New South Wales.



Urban speed limits in New South Wales are very high by international standards. Major suburban roads currently have a speed limit of 60km/h. In Melbourne it is 50km/h. Some states in the USA have a default limit of 25mph (40km/h). In Germany, despite the autobahn having unlimited… Continue

Hi Lzzter, Neil here. I am soon to start researching an update to the Syd.Uni/RPA.Hosp cycling access map. Would you be interested in contributing some route ideas/knowledge? Email me on cyclists@internode.on.net if so and I'll fill you in on the project.

Thanks Lzzter (it gives me the chance to get a wheel trued at least)

Hi Lzzter, I didn't do the ride. I went to the movies instead. It sounded like a good day though.

Sorry Lzzter, I just read my comment again and it was a bit too aggressive. I certainly didn't intend to do a Dave W on you. I can't delete the comment as I am at work and for some reason, when I access the website from work it doesn't allow me to delete comments or edit them. I'll do it when I get home.
