Light Rail Bike Rack

An interesting solution to bike storage on light rail.  The platform is attached to the front of the train.

The following image was found here.

Boycott Petroleum

Posted on November 19, 2010 at 3:43pm 8 Comments

I just started a new job the other day (in software) and I've since found that:
- the CEO is a cyclist and doesn't own a car.
- the head of my division is a cyclist and doesn't own a car.
- the building has a secure bike room with lift access.
- the building has showers on every floor.

To top it all off, I just saw this image on someone's office door:…


European Tour: Klausen Pass in Switzerland

Posted on August 9, 2010 at 8:40pm 7 Comments

On the last day of my cycling holiday in Europe, I decided to challenge myself with a Swiss mountain pass. The Klausen Pass was in the Tour of Switzerland in 2008 and was climbed (in the opposite direction) in just over an hour by the eventual winner of the tour, Roman Kreuziger…


European Trip - The Infrastructure

Posted on July 28, 2010 at 7:00pm 1 Comment

My girlfriend and I recently returned from a European cycling holiday through Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Switzerland. Of course, I was very interested in the cycling infrastructure and cycling culture (in Denmark, Germany and Holland in particular) and made sure to take some photos and videos for reference.

Here are some of my favourites...

Google Street View

Posted on June 4, 2010 at 3:00am 3 Comments

I've been planning a trip to Europe and using Google Maps to get a feel for where I'm going. I've even been able to see the quality of the bike paths besides the roads! Street view has been fantastic. I'm wondering whether I even need to go and visit! I feel like I've been there already ;-)

I'm drooling at the prospect of riding on separated paths for hundreds of kms along flat roads.…

Great to see you back out on the bike again this morning Tony.
We're in the park most Tuesdays and Thursdays if you want to join us, not a huge fan of that cafe though.

Hi Tony, sounds like a good idea to me. Fran Griffin and Doug Stewart from Bike North also work at MQ (Fran is Maths lecturer and Doug is sort of in charge of Buildings and Grounds - now called "Facilities Management").

Anyway, regarding cafes, there is a really nice outdoor section of the Union Building (called the S@M building or SAM - "Students @ Macquarie). You can just buy whatever from inside (great range of choices) and grab a table - but reserving a table might not be possible. It's worth a try I think. :-)

Yes Optus may be better - reserving a table is always better if you can. In good weather here, the outdoor tables are usually all taken. I am happy to do it over winter. I made a commitment to myself at the beginning of the year to ride every day unless I was ill or injured. I haven't bought a MQ car sticker this year so I can't drive, though I can catch the train. I have bought some good wet weather gear and am setting myself up with lighting and mud guards. I do take your point that numbers might dwindle though and Spring may be nicer. Talk to your friend at Optus and let me know.

Hi Tony, My team is "Equipe G-Force" and I've selected Astana as my team and Stage 20 as the bonus stage. I registered before the start of the Stage 1 time trial, however, in my points it lists the riders as having only ridden one stage. I noticed a few others in the Sydney Cyclist league are in a similar situation even though (I think) they had also registered before the start of stage 1. Cheers.

Hi Tony,
Was that you enquiring about the "Death on Streets" book? I could not see your question on the Bookworms page. I put the title in Google and turned up a site looks like you can read the whole thing on line for free:
Let me know how you get on with it.

Hi Tony, I hear you are up for the BN century challenge! Leigh suggested you, me and Paul form a team. I can fill out the entry form and email it to you and Paul as a PDF. You will need to sign it, can you scan it and send back to me? Maybe send me an email via SydneyCyclist so I can get your email address.

Hi Tony.
If you really like reading bike plans have a look at “The Minneapolis Bicycle Program”

Ok it's a city and not a state but Minneapolis is about the same size as Sydney

Quite an easy to use bike web page as well. I like the ride home concept.
