"Fixed speed camera would be cheaper in long run and more effective you'd think. Or point to point cameras, but we don't do them in NSW, unlike everywhere else."

What wrong in this photo?

just listed on the Sutherland Shire news Facebook page.For those that don't know the Alfords Pt shared path, the pictured police car is almost at the end of a 70 m ( vertical drop) decent, just around a left hand bend with a concret barrier on the left just out of the photo, while the visibility in day light is good, if you were using this at night you might just park on the back window of this car at high speed.The photo caption is gold!…See More

"We should show this to to the Commisioner, one of his finest was parked just around a left hand bend on a high speed decent, trying to catch speeding car drivers but posing a risk to riders to do so."

Hi Matt.,
Hope you're well! Thanks for your message!
Yes, pretty much healed now - facial lacerations from the handlebar belting me in the face when I was on the way down - stitches out - face and mouth heals fast - learned a good lesson about changing commuting routes when the road conditions change.

Riding home on the inland route now - more interesting & fun than around the water - here's the link on google Maps:

Take Care!

HI Matt.,
Yes, I reckon a beer in summer would do it!

the inland route is up and down - but the downs are really good!

I have improved the route which I was initially given - including a nice green patch at Bardwell Valley under Bexley Road - is actually 5kms shorter than Chuter, but takes the same time - would be better for John riding home I think!

Take Care!

Hi Matt.,

Lynda and I are going on for ride on Saturday and we would like to invite you to come.

 

Below is the link to the route which is:

Alfords Point Bridge - Panania - Milperra - Liverpool - M7 - Old Windsor Rd - Westmead - Parramatta - M4 - detour around the edge of Sydney Olympic Park - Cooks River - Saucer Creek - M5 - Penshurst - Como Bridge.

 

It's about 130 km, we expect to take 11-12 hours and expect to leave Loftus at 06:00

on Saturday.

Let me know if you're interested.

 

Here's the link:
