St Etienne replied to BIKESydney's discussion NSW Govt to increase fines for Riders and require Riders to carry identification
"Definitely Kathy. I know that a certain person from BN has expressed delight with the results from the extravagant increase in penalties and frequent police blitzes. It almost defies belief that anyone who calls themselves a cycling advocate would…"

St Etienne replied to BIKESydney's discussion NSW Govt to increase fines for Riders and require Riders to carry identification
"I've been warning for quite some time that as soon as Bicycle Network get some authority in NSW they'll be aiming to get cycling fines substantially increased. They probably would have been informing the minister of their wonderful success…"

St Etienne commented on Cristina's blog post Prevent Bicycle Accidents on the Road and Street
"I ride alone all the time. I don't know how to apply first aid. I take different routes without much preparation. I ride my bike at night all the time. I've ridden a bike after drinking many, many times. I rarely wear a hel.....oh,…"

St Etienne replied to Emily McMurray's discussion Toddler helmet
"By the way, the helmet in that picture was much lighter than the one he wears now because at that age his neck wasn't strong enough to support a heavier one. You can get cheap and light toddler helmets pretty much anywhere."

St Etienne replied to Emily McMurray's discussion Toddler helmet
"There's absolutely nothing irresponsible about taking a 1 year old on a bike. Nothing whatsoever. When they're small enough to sit in a front seat they can actually be quite useful."

St Etienne replied to PeterT's discussion Dutch launch 'intelligent bicycle' that warns of danger
"I'm a big sceptic when it comes to technology and gadgets to increase safety. There are some spurious claims made by the manufacturers of such devices that the media accept unquestioningly."

St Etienne replied to PeterT's discussion Dutch launch 'intelligent bicycle' that warns of danger
"There's a suggestion that the increased speed of e-bikes may be a factor but it's also possible that elderly people can travel further distances on these things, thus exposing them to more risk."

St Etienne commented on Colin's group Helmetless riders

St Etienne commented on Colin's group Helmetless riders
"Yeah Alan, the Capital City trail is a funny one. I rode to Princes Park with my son recently and I was surrounded by countless weekend recreational riders in shiny new helmets. During peak hours it gets taken over by hardcore commuters who…"

St Etienne commented on Colin's group Helmetless riders
"Hello all, found a link to a recent Ride Ons story on helmets here. (PDF) Despite the emotional anecdote at the beginning and ending I think the author remained pretty impartial throughout."
