Bob Moore replied to Tim's discussion Austroads report released - Bicycle Safety at Roundabouts
"Maybe best strategy is to go left of the cushion if no traffic behind you, but suffer the bump if a car driver is being impatient behind you, ie showing signs of trying to pass on approach.  Thinking about it, dangerous I know, putting cushions…"

"True you tend to go left or right on a bike to avoid the cushion. But having had numerous near misses over a 10 year period commuting this way, I must say this is a major improvement. Well done to anyone involved in helping make this happen. "

Yeah no worries, assuming I can find it... I think it's a standard USA port that you can probably get from any computer shop, but if I find it I'll let you know. I have an SD card reader on my laptop so I always used that.

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!
