Shared Path Bridge over Anzac Parade, Moore Park

RMS are looking to construct a shared path bridge over Anzac Parade in Moore Park, the project is now in a formal consultation period and they are looking for feedback.I'm in two minds about it. I think better access for bikes makes east/west journeys between Surry Hills and the eastern suburbs is needed, but this looks like a whole lot of money spent on an area where there are already shared path connections for cyclists. Most cyclist traffic is further south than the proposed sight too, due…See More

"Most of the costs of the separated cycleways are below ground. When you are moving kerb locations it has implications for drainage, which can result in time consuming and expensive excavation work."

Where are our bikes?

Posted on May 5, 2012 at 10:36am 11 Comments

I think this one is a bit tough, so I will give you a few clues:

1. These aren't technically our bikes. We had to leave ours at home and rent these for the day but they did the job well, nice light aluminum hybrids with Shimano Alfine 8 Speed hubs.

2. We were about to stop for lunch…

Fiona wants a new bike, and what she wants she tends to get!

 

Her Breezer Uptown is great for getting her around comfortably, but after my debut in Audax she has expressed the desire for something a little more suited to longer rides so we can do them together. Unfortunately, there isn't much money to spend at the moment, so we decided it would be fun to try to do it a little cheaper, building it up ourselves using second hand components where possible - it should be quite fun…

Steel is real.

Posted on June 22, 2011 at 12:58pm 29 Comments

This morning I was happy to be riding on a steel frame.

 

 

Cruising straight down Enmore Rd at around 40km/h on my newish Fuji Touring, I saw ahead of me near the Enmore Theatre a car on the other side of the road, stationary, indicating to turn right. When I was about 20m from the…

Who deserves to be yelled at?

Posted on June 17, 2011 at 11:01am 6 Comments

I got yelled at this morning because apparently I "should be in the left lane".

 

I was a bit surprised to be yelled at because at the time:

 

a. I was on Enmore Rd near the intersection with King St, so there are multiple lanes (and there wasn't another car for 50m in front of the person in the lane to my left who was yelling).

b. I was going around 30 km/h and maintaining a 5-10m gap between me and the car in front of me.

c. I was about to turn…

Cooks River path is probably what I mean. Will definitely give it a go. Any idea where you get on it at Tempe? :)

Yep, but Mr O's post is less ambiguous and is clearly referring to a post which has been deleted and it is rather insightful into that poster's motives.

Except as I have just noted, he is invoking your name. Oh well, we just have to get him to delete his post as well.

Or, here's a good idea, Damian could do it!!
