"I've been 'filtering' or 'lane splitting' if you like on my motorbike for 30 years. As long as you take a self preservation view it's pretty safe. The main issue I see is with the rise of scooter riders there are lots…"
"Scruby is a one man self-promotional bandwagon who also hates cyclists on shared paths. His relevance is way passed its use by date. He's just still guilty about the pedestrian he cleaned up on a pred crossing years ago. "
If you look around, there's always a control box nearby with a plate on the side showing a service number to call (131700) and an identification number for the intersection. Quote the number to them and tell them it's not…"
"Stuart, for the last 15 years of commuting in Sydney, I've ensured every light I come across regularly works for me. It's been very simple to ring the RMS traffic number, 131 700 (shown on every traffic signal control box on the big…"
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.
