Tim replied to Scott McLeod's discussion I wonder if NSW Police will ever do this too.....
"Yes. If the plod is 1.8m tall then his arm span is 1.8m. Allowing 0.3m from the centre of bike to end of handlebars, then you have a 1.5m safe passing distance. Its a pretty good rule of thumb I think! And very impressed with the undercover…"

Tim replied to Bob Moore's discussion Parramatta Rd plans-
"Why is it that there is reluctance to put cycle facilities on Parra Rd post WestConnex? Improvements to cycling facilities along Victoria Rd due to WestConnex are pretty much not happening either. Epping Rd cycleway due to Lane Cove Tunnel seems to…"

Tim replied to Andrew B's discussion Smart Trainer Hire
"I think Andrew is after a "trainer", not a "trailer".  Zwift is a virtual reality cycling program for use at home. I also got back into cycling when my kids were very young and I was trapped at home.  I used an exercise…"

Tim replied to Snowy_5's discussion Cycleways/SUP additions or extensions or upgrades.
"The original design (which was up on a board at that location) showed a strip of low shrubs separating the peds from cyclists. I'm wondering if they'll cut in that garden bed once all the kerbing has been done, or whether it will be…"

Tim replied to Pete Fetcher's discussion Going the online route

"Drivers maybe don't expect anyone to be coming out of Kelly St that way in the contra flow lane. Takes em a while to compute, esp drivers coming down Bay St. Good fun if you are aware."

Tim replied to Bob Moore's discussion M4-M5 Concept Plan- with bike links in the Rozelle Railyards.
"For the Rozelle yards, I'd expect that Lilyfield Rd would be mainly unaffected. The Crescent path is likely to be a bit of a mess for a while when they do the tunneling there. Speaking for the Iron Cove Link, the doc says "During…"

Ok no probs. Fitness is getting there, although I did get the train to work today for the first time since getting the bike. I still need my weekends off cycling to recover though - the friday night commute home is always a killer!
