Manchester's dockless bike share

Not so sweet in a city of many ratbagsTo give some context: although the educational centre of Northern England and a city of tremendous progress it's also a city of high crime, career employment avoidance, addiction and dealing.5 murderous crimes per 100,000 per year. So you don't challenge someone who stole your bike share bike!See More

Thanks Martin, there is the problem then. There was a time where I though WD40 was the cure for all things mechanical, I would spray it on locks, hinges, belts, chains whatever wasn't working I'd spray WD40 on it and it would fix the problem momentarily, and then things would start to clog up, and stop working. It definitely kept the water dispersed though.

I can put a computer together (it's like lego really), but I'm not really mechanically minded. I have started paying attention to the mechanics of the bicycle and one day would like to build by own, purchasing the parts separately. That would be the best way to learn I think and along the way learn how to maintain it.

As well as reading the forums, I think there invaluable, better than buying a book on how to do things for $50.

Hi Martin,
Great to hear from you ...... well, probably every day with your great input into SC.
We received the PricewaterhouseCoopers /SKM study yesterday afternoon ...... it appears to be a huge disappointment. We'll need to get professionals to proivide input, but the study says the northern half might be undertaken by 2015, and the remainder possibly by 2026. I can't believe they'd be so stupid to have a gap of 11 years. With the RTA providing the major funding ($93,037) for the study, it's clear they are requiring PwC to fit in with the pathetic allocation of $158M over 10 years specified in the new NSW Bikeplan ..... what a disaster! By contrast, the RTA is about to spend $4M on the PacHwy/Mowbray Rd intersection, including an exclusive left turn lane from Mowb into PH (N-bound) with no bike storage facility ..... cyclists will be very exposed. By contrast, such treatments are largely standard in Melbourne. I've decided to try to get lawyers involved ..... perhaps we can take the RTA to court??? Are you still in Euro / Germany? If so, very lucky! Cheers, Russ .... webberrus@gmail.com

Happy Birthday Martin

Martin, I'm confused - I thought you lived in Heidelberg (and I don't mean the one in Melb) - at least that's what your profile says!!

 

I'm in Collingwood St, just opposite Raglan St. I ride from there to USyd a couple of times a week and barely ever do weekend rides because I'm busy Sunday morning (so can't do LBUG stuff) and do enough riding on my own - any group/other rides you know about that I'm free for I'm happy to tag along for!

 

Cheers,

Michelle

Hey Martin - I'm not terribly well-placed to spend whole days in the mountains but sthg local would be terrific - for instance, was just reading in CoS cycling newsletter about the Greenway; I'd love to give that a go sometime!

 

Cheers - apparently we get some cooler weather on Sun/Mon... can't wait!!

I might have to pass this week, Martin, but - soon (I have house guests all week).

 

Happy weekend riding!

Hi Martin - sounds bloody brilliant! What days generally suit you best?

 

I can do Sundays, but not until the afternoon. Any Saturday, by prior arrangement. :-)

 

It'd be great to have an excuse to finally meet some of these SC people whose comments I keep reading...

At 12:49pm on February 28, 2011, dr bean said…

Hi Martin,

 

Are you around in Syd/going to the safe cycling rally on March 12?

 

I'm thinking of getting the ferry over from Drummoyne to the northside (call me lazy or unfit, but I don't want to be buggered before I even start!) for 8am.

 

Oh, and speaking of excuses to meet SC people - are you going to the 3000-SC-members party at the end of March?

 

Cheers,

Michelle

Hi Martin,

 

I thought this article might be of interest in relation to the Ch-Ch quake, in terms of the building standards discussion we were having the other day. I was thinking today that there are still many 100+ year old buildings still standing (either completely or sufficiently to be repared), and only a couple of new ones that came down after two significant shakes and 5000+ aftershocks over 6 months. I really hope we've seen the worst of them though!
