"I think that the "dominant masculine, competitive, sporting image of cycling" is predominately an Australian / USA / UK English speaking world thing. I don't think in Europe or Asia that sports cycling is the dominate way of…"
"I live right near here and there's loads of kids there on the weekends and littlies are prone to running onto the SUP. So I watch out for them. Usually their parent or some adult will get them out of the way and be apologetic, but I…"
"i think originally the connection for cyclists, rough as it was, was around the north side! But putting it back there would still have the same problem, or more so. Oh to be a Council recreational planner! Who would have thought bunging…"
"Interesting that it seems to be novice cyclists who aren't regulating their speed.
I have seen similar in Olympic Park, experienced riders adjusting speed in response to the environment while some novices keep pedalling as fast as they can. I…"
"Further east at Kendrick Park they have separated the cyclist and pedestrians, directing cyclist to use the View St.
From the map they seem to have plenty of room to create separated paths.
Move the cyclepath away from the playground and walkers,…"
"With the fence to corral strays, surely there's no problem as you say.
I wonder what speeds they have been measuring, I can't tell from the picture by how much the curves will control speed. I wonder too if an engineer has been…"

I have a 2010 Pinarello FP3; a 2008 Merida Road Lite 905 as a spare & a 2006 Merida TFS 500 MB with slicks for commuting & going to the shops.
Member of Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club and the webmaster / forum moderator. I also ride a 2007 Ducati ST3 motorbike as my day to day commuter transport and weekend touring machine. Have been cycling only since Sep 2006 and I'm trying to get fit after 25 years of smoking. Big into fine dining restaurants, cooking, conservation and cyclists rights advocacy.
I just saw weiyun's comment, re the DHBC web site layout in Safari, that he added to the Bitten discussion. I was wondering why he put it there. Ideally an issue like that would be communicated to the DHBC webmaster (you?) through the DHBC web site.
If I could make a suggestion. Many sites have links in the site's footer that are not specifically related to the topic of the site but rather to the construction and management of the site. I couldn't see that at the DHBC website (using Firefox on a mac). The "contact us" link on the side menu seemed to be for messages to the club secretary who, I expect, is more concerned about running the club than running the web site.
On Sydney Cyclist, for example, the footer contains a link to "Report an Issue". Other sites often have a "Webmaster" link or similar that will allow the user to send a direct message to the webmaster.
A link like that on the DHBC site would allow web site users (members or not) to have the option to report issues or suggestions for improvement directly to the people who would be most interested.
