My mega garage sale

I'll be moving in roughly 6 months so to get started on downsizing my garage I'm selling all my excess bike stuff. Could be a lot of handy stuff in there especially if you're building a bike.

I thought I'd offer this stuff to Sydney Cyclist members first. Anything left over I'll put on ebay, gumtree or take down to cycle-recycle in waterloo.

I've put pictures,…

Touring South Island NZ

A: Maybe because generally conference proceedings and papers are published and as such the existence of the paper would be much easier to verify than some of the opinion based comments you have put forward??: Comments involving sarcasm and… Continue

Red light running is counterproductive

Posted on December 5, 2008 at 10:13pm 22 Comments

Despite various justifications people make, running red lights is done for selfish reasons and is bad PR for cyclists. At a time when we are trying to negotiate with government at all levels to improve conditions, safety and participation, we should behave as good ambassadors for cycling.

Firstly, definition of red-light running behavior for my rant:

*I’m not talking about flying through just as it goes from orange to red, or taking off just before it turns… Continue
